Dear Friends and Parishioners of Ascension Memorial Church,
A dear soul, treasured and respected by so many throughout Ipswich and well beyond for her kindness, intelligence, and generous spirit, departed peacefully this morning with her four children at her side.
Hope “Hopie” Wigglesworth went into the hospital earlier this week for a successful procedure but during her recovery suffered a stroke. She overcame the initial impact of the stroke and was wonderfully, even humorously, responsive to family and friends, but a full recovery was not likely to be, so Hope seems to have departed graciously on her own terms.
A service for Hopie will be held in late June. Details for that special occasion will be sent at a later date.
May her soul rest in peace and may the love of God guide her, even now, along her way.
