Yvonne 'Tillie' Cox-Hopkins


February 7, 2018

Yvonne "Tillie" Cox-Hopkins, 86, our beautiful and loving mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, went to be with the Lord on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018, at Faith Lutheran Home in Wolf Point, Mont.

Visitation will be Friday, Feb. 9, from 6 to 8 p.m., at Bell Chapel. Services will be Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Frazer Community Hall with a viewing at 11 a.m., and the service beginning at 1 p.m.

She was born July 24, 1931, to Joseph and Julia (Grandchamp) Cox at home in Frazer, Mont.

She attended school in Frazer, then went on to cosmetology school in Chicago. She also worked at the Johnnie Café for numerous years as a cook and waitress. She was a very accomplished seamstress. She taught herself to make star blankets, which she hand sewed because she said they looked better. She made many afghans, doilies, tablecloths, and aprons. She enjoyed sewing and had a natural eye for blending colors. She was a wiz at crossword puzzles, word finds and Lottery scratch-off tickets. She loved bingo and playing solitaire, even with cards that were curled up. She said the older the better, then she would give you her laugh.

She had four husbands, of which Floyd Hopkins was her last one and the true love of her life, which the feeling was mutual. She had a very good sense of humor, which was infectious.

Everyone loved her at Nemont Manor in Glasgow and Faith Lutheran Home in Wolf Point, where she kept them amused with her stories. She had a heart of gold and would help anyone.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Floyd; parents, Joe and Julia (Grandchamp) Cox; four sisters, Lenora Red Elk, Loretta Adams, Genevive Cox and Darlene Cox; brothers, Joseph JR. Arlee, Julius, Nelson, Melvin, Raymond, Alvin and Donald Cox; and one son, Parker.

She is survived by four daughters, Julianna Ackerman, Debra Cantrell, Carole Nimrod and her husband, Ross, and Robin Cox; seven sons, Michael Ackerman and his wife, Earlene, twins, Rex and Ray Cox, Ricky Gives, Richard Cox, Jeffery Cox and Randy Cox; one brother, Ed Cox and his wife, Marilyn; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; numerous special nieces and nephews; and sister-in-law Lillie Cox.

Tillie was much loved and will be greatly missed but not forgotten.

Bell Mortuary of Glasgow is in charge of the arrangements.
