It is with sadness that we, as a family, share the loss of our Matriarch, Mary Helen Bruderly Daniels Hoprich on June 27th, 2016. But, it is with joy that we will remember her extraordinary life.
Mary Helen was born August 21, 1920 in Salem, Ohio. She completed her schooling there, held her first job at Salem China in a secretarial position and was married before leaving her birthplace.
During her many years in Arizona, she made life long friends that became extended family. She became a mother, grandmother and great grandmother. After a couple of years working in a data entry position with The Social Security Administration, she became a stay at home Mom and also took on the duties of “keeping the books” for her husbands first endeavor with his own business. The business grew and she expanded her knowledge of what was needed to be the “office manager and partner” in the successful business of R. E. “Danny” Daniels Construction.
Throughout the years, she learned to camp, fish, play cards, enjoy sporting events and became an avid ASU Basketball fan. She loved life and lived it as a kind, generous and loving woman to the best of her ability with grace and as an inspiration to others.
She was preceded in death by her first husband, Roland Earl ( R. E. “Danny” ) Daniels and her second husband, Dr. Harold F. ( Hoppy ) Hoprich; as well as, her brother, Robert Bruderly and her grandson, Eric Winn.
She is survived by her daughters Kay Stout ( Dean ), Susan Pratte ( Don ), and Rebecca Brannon ( John Williams ). She had 8 grandchildren: Scott Fincanon, Aimee Winn Veros, Travis Winn; Zachary, Jacob and Lucas Brannon and Hannah Brannon Roepke ( Lucas ). She also had 8 great grandchildren. Her brother Ben Bruderly ( Marge ) and sisters in law, Mary Lou Weidenmeir ( Carl ), and Betty Weiss, as well as other extended family members.
I will remember my Mother with love and the life lessons that she taught me will continue to be an inspiration for me.
