Andrea Beth Hopkins, age 65, passed away peacefully in her sleep June 21, 2020, due to heart failure. She was born on October 13, 1954, in Detroit Michigan to Walter and Esther Hopkins. She was never married nor had any children.
Andrea loved to love on people. She loved to sew and loved the casino. She also loved to share her love of food with her lemon sweets and her awesome baked chicken and gravy over rice.
After graduation from Henry Ford High School in June 1973 she was a daycare teacher for a few years and then hired with General Motors in 1976 where she remained and retired after 40 years.
She leaves behind a very loving family that she was very proud of. Andrea was world-renowned for her lack of patience, not holding back her opinion and a knack for telling it like it is.
She always told you the truth even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear.
Everyone always knew where they stood with her. She liked you or she didn't.
Her extensive vocabulary was more than highly proficient at knowing more curse words than most people learned in a lifetime. At work Andrea was AKA QUEEN.
Her words of encouragement, wisdom, and comfort, kept us in line, and gave us something to pass down to our children.
Andrea will be surely missed.
