She was preceded in death by her husband: Howard Reaves; a son: Tim Reaves; two sisters: Glenna Jones and Betty Jones; two brothers: Jack Hopson and Ray Hopson; and parents: Nick and Mittie Blake Hopson.

The family will receive friends from 5-8 p.m. today at Kiser-Rose Hill Funeral Home with the funeral service following at 8 p.m. in the chapel. The Rev. Jackie Miller and Joel Burns will officiate.

Family and friends will meet at 10 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home to go in procession to Greystone FWB Church Cemetery for an 11 a.m. committal service.
