Obituary for Donna Sue Hopwood

MAPLETON—Donna Sue Vallas Hopwood, 71, of Mapleton passed away at 10:25 a.m. Tuesday, January 1, 2019 at UnityPoint Health – Methodist.

Born March 5, 1947 in Peoria, a daughter of Gabriel “Gabe” and Idora Emma Clark Vallas, Donna married Dennis Keith Hopwood June 5, 1965 in Edwards. He survives.

Also surviving are her children, Dawn E. (Lon) Lester of Williamsfield, Douglas K. (Amber) Hopwood of Mapleton, Daniel K. (Wanvisa) Hopwood of East Peoria; seven grandchildren; two brothers, Carl (Paula) Vallianatos of McHenry, IL, Donald (Janet) Vallianatos of Peoria and her sister-in-law, Janet Vallas of Yates City.

Donna was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers.
Donna worked at the Retirement Planning Store retiring as office manager in 2018.
She was a member of the Keystone Square Dance Club. She enjoyed crocheting, and was an avid gardener. She was passionate about bees and butterflies. She was an award winning fisherwoman and loved playing cards with her grandkids. Her favorite song was ‘Remind Me Dear Lord.’

Donna Hopwood was a devoted grandmother of seven and mother to so many more, lived life to the fullest; never shied-away from a good fight; and, was always there with open arms. Say a prayer for all the kids who were not blessed with a mother dedicated to their lives. She will be missed but lives on in generations to come. Rest in Peace.
