A vigil for Rina Hopkins will be held at St. Mathews Catholic Church on June 1. 2021 at 7:00pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on June 2, 2021 at 10:00am at St. Mathews Catholic Church. Our beloved sister, Rina L. Hopkins, 72 passed away on May 25, 2021 surrounded by her family from a 20-month battle with Ovarian Cancer. Rina currently resides in Gillette, WY. She originally lived in Cranston, RI for over 40 years before she moved to Gillette, with her sister Lorraine, due to her cancer fight. She was the wife of the late Douglas Hopkins and was born in Woonsocket, RI to the late Roland and Rita Riendeau. Her loves were reading, crocheting, gardening and collecting crazy socks that use to embarrass her family. She belonged to the Phillips Memorial Baptist Church Choir and the Monday night Church knitting group was a constant in her life. Missing it was not an option because she loved to go and chat with all the ladies and work on a project. She loved all the girls that attended. Rina called it her Therapy session. Crocheting was an everyday event, for hours. We swear she could do it in her sleep and I believe we witnessed it once or twice. Rina leaves behind her brother Armand Riendeau and his wife Janis of Jacksonville, FL and her sister and caregiver Lorraine Smelser and her husband William of Gillette, WY along with her nieces and nephews. Also left behind is her beloved cat, Sophie, who never left her Mom’s side while she was sick and use to howl when Rina was not there. We swear we could hear her howl HELLO, HELLO looking for her mom. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Rina to the Hepner Cancer Center 501 S. Burma Ave, Gillette, WY 82716. Memorials and condolences may also be sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel 210 West 5th Street, Gillette, WY 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at www.gillettememorialchapel.com
