Georgia Ooten Hopping, 91, of Easley, wife of the late Jack E. Hopping, passed away on Thursday, July 20, 2023, at her home.
Born on January 31, 1932, in Livingston, Tennessee, a daughter of the late Loren and Bonnie Jackson Ooten. Georgia was a remarkable woman who touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her. With a warm and nurturing heart, she dedicated her life to her family and created a home filled with love and laughter. Georgia's essence radiated with the love she had for her children and grandchildren. She was not only a loving mother but also a doting grandmother who cherished every moment spent with her beloved grandchildren. Her kind and gentle nature made her an absolute joy to be around, always ready with open arms and a listening ear. One could find Georgia in her element among her plants, tending to each one with care. She had a green thumb that seemed to possess magical powers as she nurtured her plants into flourishing beauties. The sight of hummingbirds visiting her garden brought immense joy to Georgia's heart. Pictures held a special place in Georgia's heart. Each photograph captured treasured moments shared with her family, representing an exquisite tapestry of love and memories. The walls of her home were adorned with snapshots that showcased the milestones and precious times spent together. Georgia's greatest love was undoubtedly her husband. Throughout their journey together, they were inseparable companions who ventured through life hand in hand. Their unwavering devotion allowed them to weather any storm that came their way. Every year, without fail, they embarked on an annual beach trip together. These moments served as a testament to their unbreakable bond and created memories that will forever be etched in the hearts of all who witnessed their love.
Georgia is survived by her daughter, Sherry Cassels (Rob); a brother, James Ooten; two sisters, Brenda Miller, and Alice Goldsberry; three grandchildren, Javan Cassels (Michelle), Ashley Davis (Mike); and Dustin Cassels (Lauren); and four great-grandchildren, Sumpter Cassels, Cassie Davis, Breanna Davis, and Michael Davis.
