Left to cherish Esther’s memories are her loving daughters, Vanessa Hopkins, and Jennifer Fulp and husband Kenny; her granddaughters, Haleigh and Callie Hopkins, great-grandson Barrett Turpin; many loving nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank the staff, nurses, and doctors of Missions LVAD clinic, Cancer Center, all the nurses and staff of the Heart Tower E-4, and the Four Seasons Palliative Care staff. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, Benevolence Fund, 14 Chastain Hill Rd, Mills River, NC 28759.
