Catherine L "Cay" Hopkins

  Catherine L "Cay" Hopkins passed away April 19, 2004. Catherine was a wife, mother ad the last of the great American volunteers. Cay was born Feb 10, 1925, in Denver, Colo, to the late Harry and Carrie Howland. At an early age, she learned the joy of giving of oneself and the responsibilities of being a leader. In December of 1946 Cay joined for life with her life partner, William G Hopkins. Catherine truly enjoyed her role as a wife and strived for 58 years to be a partner who supported and completed the circle of love that binds two people into a couple. In 1951, Cay began a second, and in the opinion of her children, greater role as mother. Cay's mothering nature not only included her three children, but a wide age range of children who knew her as "Grandma Cay."

    Cay and William served as missionaries in Central America. No job was too small for Cay. She always was available with a smile and a hug when needed. Cay was a true believer in Pueblo. Her contribution to such organizations as the Y M C A, Pueblo Symphony, Rosemount Museum and the Sangre de Crisco Arts Center, illustrates her love of her city and her conviction that life should be exposed to and enhanced spiritually,culturally and physically.

    Cay was a member of the First Methodist Church, where she gave generously of her time and talents. It was her belief that all matters could be solved by having a personal relationship with God.

  Cay is survived by her husband, William G Hopkins: daughters, Gayle (Steve Lamy) Hopkins, Los Angeles, Calif; Sharon White. Chester, SC; Greg (Cindy) Hopkins, Denver, three grandchildren, Rachel White, Conner and Brenna Hopkins; and two granddogs.

    Memorial service will be held at 10:00am, Saturday, April 24, 2004 at First United Methodist Church, 11th and Court, wit the Rev Rick Calhoun officiating, In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that families come together for a night of togetherness and conversation, Memorials may be made to the Y M C A or the First United Methodist Church, c/o the funeral home.
