Obituaries » Barbara B. Hopkins

Barbara Bowman Hopkins, 84, passed away on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, in Warrenton.

Barbara was born on November 10, 1936, in Boones Mill, Va., to the late Luther Daniel Bowman and Annie Mitchell Bowman.

Barbara received her bachelor of science in education from Radford College, the women’s division of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and received her master’s in education from the University of Virginia. She taught in the Roanoke County school system for more than 30 years as a reading specialist. She had numerous hobbies, but doting on her grandchildren and quilting were her favorites.

She is survived by her daughter, Allyn Turner Long (Rick) of Warrenton; two granddaughters, Taylor Elizabeth Long and Claire Jeanetta Long (Mike); a grandson, Andrew Richard Long; two brothers, Chester L. Bowman (Eleanor) and Mitchell B. Bowman (Bobbie); a sister, Wanda B. Crickenberger (Tommy), and numerous generations of nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Barbara was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph W. Hopkins; four brothers, Ray S. Bowman, Archer Webster Bowman, James Orville Bowman and J. Harlan Bowman, and a sister, Estelle Bowman Craig.

Barbara and her family are eternally grateful for the love and care provided by her longtime caregivers Mesert Tegaud, Solomon Feineh, Mekdes Yohanes and Israel Balcha.

She will be interred with her husband at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.
