Augusta Parker Hopkins

April 15, 2021

Augusta Parker Hopkins peacefully departed this world on April 13, 2021 surrounded by her family. She was deeply loved and will be greatly missed. Augusta was born on January 7, 1933 to Lawrence and Eula Parker in Davisville, FL. She also resided in Atmore AL, Mobile, AL and was a long time resident of Orange Beach, AL.

Augusta was a successful businesswoman, owning several ventures with her husband Troy in Atmore, Mobile and Orange Beach. Together they won several awards and trips abroad as top sellers in their industry. She also had a true talent for raising a large family and making it look easy. There was always room for another chair around the table at the “big house” on Horner Street and many of her children’s friends considered it a second home. She was a wonderful cook and loved teaching her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren how to make her many recipes, buttermilk biscuits being at the top of the list. She never met a stranger and had a unique knack for finding something in common with every one she met. Augusta also loved sports, played basketball in school and enjoyed traveling with Troy to cheer on the Alabama Crimson Tide both home and away. Sharp as a tack mentally she worked crossword puzzles with an ink pen in minutes.

Augusta was preceded in death by her parents Lawrence and Eula Parker; husband Troy E. Hopkins Sr.; son Troy E. Hopkins Jr.; sister Ruby Lee Varner; brothers Eddie and Arnold Parker; grandchildren John, Miranda and Melissa Hawkins and son-in-law Charles Walker.

She is survived by three daughters Dianne Walker; Charlotte Culbreth and her husband Steve of Orange Beach and Cindy Hopkins of Foley. One son, Greg Hopkins Sr. One brother, Curtis A. Parker and his wife Annie. Eight grandchildren Troy Hopkins III (Brandie);Minnie Bilbo (Cline); Gus Smith(Andy);Beau Hawkins(Chelsie);Emma Hawkins; Greg Hopkins Jr.; Katie Hopkins and Elizabeth Hancock (Scott);38 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

The family will gather at 12:30pm with visitation at 1pm and the service following at 2pm. Burial will be at Oak Hill Cemetery in Atmore.
