Jolynda Lorraine Hopper
Jolynda Lorraine Hopper passed away September 10, 2015 in Seattle. She was born on February 23, 1948 to Myrna Laura (Biltoft) and Thomas Powell West in Seattle. Jolynda married Ross Hopper on February 6, 1966. She had heart disease most of her life which resulted in chronic heart failure. She died of complications from open heart surgery. Jolynda was very involved in her church and enjoyed gardening, sewing, her grandchildren, going to movies and casinos with her friends, and Elvis Presley. She will be missed by many.

She was preceded in death by her parents; beloved husband Enos Ross Hopper on January 16, 2014; daughter-in-law Michelle Hopper; and brothers Ronny West, Danny West, and Rodney Barrington. She will be placed at Tahoma National Cemetery with her husband.
