Lois Annette Jopson passed away peacefully on February 23 at St. Martin’s Home in Catonsville, MD having been there under the loving care of the Little Sisters of the Poor since 2014. Annette, as she was known for most of her adult life, born March 4, 1924 in Akron, Ohio, daughter of Charles and Florence Pearl Milliken. Her siblings were Eddie, Joe, Jean, and Agnes. She also had Dick, Jack, Isabelle (also known as Helen), Jimmy, Chuck, Carol, Tom, Billy and Ruth who were step or half siblings. Her death was preceded by the passing of her former husband James Jopson in 2011. Annette resided in Williamsport, PA for most of her life and moved to Baltimore in the 1970’s to be close to her son Ed and his family. In 1990 she moved in with Ed and his growing family where she would remain until moving to Saint Martin’s Home. Professionally Annette worked as a switchboard operator, administrator for two Medical Doctors, and most recently worked at the Towson Family Y up until retirement. She was a volunteer for many years at Williamsport hospital. She is survived by her three children, Margaret (Peggy) Munoz of Capistrano Beach, CA and San Jose del Cabo, Mexico; Edward Jopson of Baltimore; and John Jopson of Tuscany, Italy and Laguna Beach, CA. She has three grandchildren and five great grandchildren. She loved nature, especially gardening, and was always fond of the many family pets (dogs, cats, and even a racoon). She took great care to express herself through cooking and was known for her fantastic pies. She didn’t shy away from trying new dishes either, and even later in life was known to experiment…at least when she could fend off the many requests for tried and true family favorites. She was also prolific at knitting and sewing. Annette was very faithful to Red Cross Blood Drives and over the years donated literally gallons of blood. Some of her fondest memories were of her 70th birthday hot air balloon ride and trips to Ireland and Italy, including one to her son John’s house in Loro Ciuffenna, Italy for her 80th birthday where she shared an Easter dinner with her family. A Wake will be held from 2:30-7:30 PM Thursday, February 27, 2020 at St. Martin’s Home in Catonsville, her Funeral Mass will follow on Friday at 11:00 AM.

I'm sorry to hear of your mother passing. I remember her well. She was always so pleasant and good to me when I was around. I remember the days with you and your family at your grandfather's home above Saladaysburg. Those will always be cherished times for me. I hope you and your family are doing well even thru these difficult times. I know that your Mother is with our Lord today.

To John, Ed and Peg, My most sincere condolences to you on the passing of your Mom. I remember the fun times up at the cabin and on Walnut Street. She was a pretty cool lady who made super tasty artichoke hearts. I remember one time on Walnut Street when your parents, sooner than expected, came home to us in a very, um, smoky living room. She exclaimed, "Even the dog smells like it!" Still makes me smile and I hope you too! Be well!

Aunt Annette, the last of the Three Graces, was a wonderful Aunt, I have so many great memories of the times shared among all of us cousins. As kids we always shared our summers and they were the very best when shared.
Loving memories, Cousin Bruce
