"Did You Know?
Rose Hopkins was born Feb. 21, 1901 in Sardis, Ohio in Monroe County. She was married March 11, 1919. She and her husband spent their first six years in Akron where he was employed at Goodyear (he made $600 a month) and where he worked for 40 years. He also was a part-time preacher of the gospel for many years. They had ten children; nine of them still living.
One of Mrs. Hopkins' hobbies is making quilts -- and does she ever! Rose makes up to two quilts a month, and can quilt one in a week!
She has also done a lot of traveling. In 1972 she went to the Bible lands. There she crossed the Sea of Galilee, saw the presumed place where Jesus had fed 5,000, and all the other wonderful sights.
In 1974 she even went around the world! She has lived in Arizona and New Mexico, where she and her husban lived in Albuquerque until two years ago when they moved back for their children and grandchildren. Her husband passed away a year ago. Rose is an inspiring woman and good example to the younger ladies of the church. We encourage everyone to get to know Rose, as we have, to learn what a wonderful person she is. -- The Teens"
