Marlys Hopwood Death, Obituary – Marlys Hopwood has passed away untimely and unexpectedly leaving friends, loved ones, family, and the entire community heartbroken and in grievance, according to a social media sharing. Marlys began her career as a telephone operator for Singer Sewing Co. and then for Northwestern Bell after the two companies merged. Marlys Lowers was born in Bertha, Minnesota on September 29th, 1942 to parents Leonard and Rosalle Lowers.
In 1961, she received her diploma from Bertha High School. In 1962, Marlys tied the knot with Robert Milton McIntire, and the couple went on to have two boys together: Robert and Wade. We can’t count how many times we called the operator and asked for the current time in the vain hope that she would pick up the phone. After working at Northwestern Bell for 17 years, she came to the conclusion that it was more necessary for her to remain at home to raise her children. She was an expert housewife, highly skillful in the kitchen, in addition to being an amazing seamstress and an ardent gardener. However, the most important thing in her life was being a kind, loving, and exceptionally patient mother.
She was a fantastic friend and neighbor to a lot of people in Wadena, and she was always willing to help out, regardless of whether or not she was asked. She enjoyed playing practical jokes on others and making other people laugh as much as she could. Marlys will gladly shorten the length of your jeans for you, but in exchange for your grin, she may have sewn one of the pockets shut. Her sewing abilities were outstanding! Her quilting gifts touched the lives of a great number of people across the country, including war veterans, grandchildren, and newborns. Marlys was an amazing mother and a fantastic grandmother to her family. She was a lovely person, and we all hold very fond memories of our time spent with her.
Our hearts will never be the same when she’s gone. Even though we are going to miss her tremendously, we are thankful that she is now at rest and that she is back with Robert. Her grandkids were the apple of her eye, and she cherished any opportunity to brag about them while also passing on her wit and humor to the next generation. Marlys is survived by her sons, Robert Jr. (and Vickie), of Richmond, Minnesota, and Wade (and Darlene), of Lake Elmo, Minnesota; her grandchildren, Corey, Sarah, Timothy, Kyla, Kaitlin, and Kristin; as well as numerous cousins, aunts, and nephews, and other relatives and friends.
Her husband, Robert, as well as her parents, Leonard and Rosalle Lowers, and her brothers, Herbert, Roger, and Leonard Jr. Lowers, all passed away before Marlys. The family and all of her many friends will miss her very much after her passing. For many of us, she was a guardian angel. Another angel has joined God on the throne, and together they will continue to keep watch over all of God’s loved ones.
