Hopper, Ursula (Lella) (1888-1911)

Primitive Methodist Magazine 1912

Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by J.P.

By the sudden death of Miss Lella Hopper on June 12th, 1911, Easington Lane Society, Hetton, and the home of Councillor T. Hopper, have suffered very serious loss. The circumstances are the more tragic because she was so full of promise in health and service. All her life had been spent in the interests of Easington Lane Society. Always energetic, genial and willing, a more self-sacrificing girl it would be difficult to find. She had a sweet kindly nature, absolutely free from guile, and was especially beloved by the children. A most useful worker in connection with bazaars, teas and specials, dutiful to her Sunday School class, and a loyal Endeavourer. Though cut off at the age of twenty-two, her memory will be fragrant for many years to come.


Lella was born in late 1888 at Hetton le Hole, Co. Durham, to parents Thomas Hopper, a mining engineman (1891) and assurance agent (1911), and Mary Ellen Sexton.

Lella died on 12 June 1911 at Hetton le Hole, Co. Durham.
