Jeanette W. Hopkins, age 87 of Plymouth passed away on November 26, 2017.

Jeanette was born on February 9, 1930 in Lapeer, Michigan, the daughter of George and Virginia (nee Perin) Wallace. She is the beloved wife of the late John M. Hopkins who passed away in 1996.

Jeanette grew up in Ypsilanti. She attended Michigan State College - now known as Michigan State University, and while she was a student, met her future husband, John Hopkins. Jeanette was a proud member of the Alpha Xi Delta Sorority and continued to be active in her sorority until later in life. She graduated in 1952 and married John the same year. Their marriage was blessed with their two children, Nancy and Mark.

In addition to her sorority, Jeanette was also involved with AAUW, was a PEO, and a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth. Jeanette became the Librarian at Plymouth High School and later pursued a degree to become a Medical Librarian. She then went on to work as the Medical Librarian at Garden City Hospital in 1974 until her retirement in 1990.

Jeanette is the devoted mother of Nancy (Mike) Hopkins-Maurer and the late Mark Hopkins. She is the proud Grandmother of Matthew Hopkins, and step-grandchildren, Ellen Maurer, Chad Maurer, Adam Titze, Sarah Clibourne and Magan Williams. She is deeply loved and will be greatly missed by her siblings, Gordon Wallace, sister-in-law, Jean Hopkins, the late Fritz Hopkins and many nieces and nephews.
