Teresa was born in Grenada to Thomas D. and Anne Duke Organ. She had been a lifelong resident of Carroll County. She was a graduate of Greenwood High School and attended Northwest MS Community College. She began her career in banking with Leflore Bank in the early 1970’s and remained through several changes until retiring in 2019 with CB&S Bank. Teresa was a faithful member of Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church where she was the decorations director. She was preceded in death by her parents.
Mrs. Hopper is survived by her husband, Billy Hopper; a step-son, William Hopper of Tennessee; two sisters, Jane Didlake (Pat) of Carrollton and Dorothy Prewitt (Earl) of Carrollton; three nieces, Monica Jones (Kenny), Emily Branch (Tyler) and Lauren Beck (John); and seven great nieces and nephews, Kendi Brook Jones, Allie Kathryn Beck, Anna Lauren Jones, John Lane Beck, Anne Michael Branch, Meri Milton Beck and Benson Branch. Although Teresa never had children of her own she spent her days doing for and spending time with her girls and her “grandchildren” and that gave her life. Along with that responsible came the nickname of DeDe that she wore proudly.
There are many that helped along the way and for that love we are grateful. Compassionate and caring nurses are hard to come by and DeDe was blessed with some of the best. We certainly appreciate all the “above and beyond” you did for her
Pallbearers are Kenny Jones, John Beck, Tyler Branch, Levi Shepard, Steve Parks and Ty Agee. Honorary pallbearers are Gerald Conway, Steve Markovich, Stacy Weeks and Paul Jones.
