The embodiment of class, not a person who knew her would have a negative thing to say about her. She was one of the kindest souls you could meet. Hope was active in the Huntsville Hospital Auxiliary for 30 years, donating her time and love. She attended First United Methodist Church of Huntsville and was active in the J.O.Y. Sunday Class. She enjoyed playing Bridge in several groups, and was a friend to many. She will be loved and missed.
