Alice Virginia Hooper, 98, of Suffield, beloved wife of the late Lindsey Hooper Jr., passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. Born in Somerville, MA to the late George and Marion (Thompson) Bacon, she attended Medford High School and Lasell Junior College. Ginny, as she was known by friends, had many passions in life. Life itself was tops on the list and anyone who knew her realized this. She loved to travel and visited many places around the world, often several times. She loved the game of Bridge and became a Bronze Life Master. She made many wonderful friends throughout the years of playing and it kept her mind sharp. She loved her church, Trinity United Methodist Church. She became a member in 1957 and sang in the choir for many years. Ginny was a Past Noble Grand of Rebekah Lodge for over 60 years. She always loved a good meal, savoring many at The Federal along with a Crown Royal. She was a great cook in her own right and had a talent for baking. Ginny loved to knit and do needlepoint and made many things for her family and friends. She is survived by her children, Stephen F. Hooper and his wife Susan of Laconia, NH; Linda M. Hooper of West Newton, MA; and Ronald G. Hooper of Center Tuftonboro, NH; her four grandchildren, David Hooper and his wife Valerie, Kate Crossan, Rory Hooper, and Charles Hooper; and her two great-grandchildren, Lindsey Hooper and Trayton Hooper. A memorial service will be held at 11 AM on Saturday, May 18 at Trinity United Methodist Church in Springfield. In memory of Ginny memorial donations may be made to Trinity United Methodist Church, 361 Sumner Ave Springfield, MA 01108 or because of her love of animals, to a shelter of your choice.
