Charlotte L.'s Story
Charlotte (Lewis) Hopping, 89, of North Andover, Mass., died Saturday night at the Prescott Nursing Home. She was the youngest of three daughters of Charles M. and Ruth (Foster) Lewis. Charlotte was raised and educated in North Andover graduating for North Andover High School in 1945. After her divorce from Walter B. Hopping in 1961, she started her business of house cleaning. She went to night school to learn to be a key punch operator. After graduating she worked for the Lawrence Savings Bank. In 1969, she started working for the Dept. of Public Welfare in the Lawrence office. She retired from the Welfare Dept. on Dec. 31, 1990, as head clerk. She caught "Red Sox Fever" from her father and spent many Sunday mornings discussing how could The Sox be so bad after the All Star game every year. Well, there's always next year! She lived to see the Red Sox win the World Series three times. Charlotte loved her "Sugar or Sweetie" just two names of cats in her life. After retiring she loved to cook, garden, take her sisters on day trips to visit friends and family and took great care of beloved cat. She is survived by her son, Walter P. Hopping of Haverhill. She will be missed by her cousins, nieces, and nephews. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the M.S.P.C.A. at Nevins in Methuen, Mass., or an animal rescue service of your choice.
