Shirley K. Hopper, of Russell Springs, Kentucky, passed from this life on Wednesday, August 25, 2021. She was 79 years of age.
Shirley was a homemaker and a member of Russell Springs First Baptist Church, which she loved. She was also a life-long learner, avid reader, and held a real-estate license. Shirley loved babies and children, and was the best mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother to her family. She loved to travel and had explored the world with her daughter, Vicki. She also enjoyed lake vacations with the whole family. Shirley will be remembered as a sweet lady, who always had a smile and was a true servant to people.
Born on March 8, 1942, in Russell County, Kentucky, she was a daughter of the late James Henry and Laura Grace Bolin Kerr.
Survivors include her beloved husband, Donald Hopper, of Russell Springs; one son, Donald Wayne (and Barbara Reese) Hopper, of Lebanon, Tennessee; and three daughters, Vicki (and Ronald) Hopper Wysocki, of Columbus, Ohio, Sherri Branscum Hartman, of Russell Springs, Kentucky, and Kimberly (and John) Hopper Francis, of Bridgeton, Missouri. Shirley is also survived by five grandchildren, Jeffrey Lee Potts, II, Tristan John (and Sarah) Francis, Zachary Wysocki, Clancey Caroline Hopper, and Madelynn (and Jacob) Francis Hendrickson; four great-grandchildren, Dylan McKenzee Potts, Jael Lynn Hendrickson, Nava Marie Hendrickson, and Talia Leslie Hendrickson; two sisters, Wanda Brown, of Russell Springs and Sue (and Jack) Hopper, of Jamestown; and two sisters-in-law, Betty Kerr and Pam Kerr, both of Russell Springs.
In addition to her parents, Shirley was preceded in death by two brothers, William "Buddy" Kerr and Stevie Kerr, and a brother-in-law, Dewey Brown.
Funeral services will be held privately for family at 1:00 P.M. on Sunday, August 29, 2021, at Bernard Funeral Home, with her son-in-law, Dr. John Francis officiating. Burial will follow in Russell Springs City Cemetery.
The family will receive friends from 5:00-7:00 P.M. on Saturday, August 28, 2021, and from 8:00 A.M. until service time on Sunday, August 29, 2021, at Bernard Funeral Home.
