HOPPE, Marcella   -  It is with heavy hears and deep sadness that we announce the passing of Marcella Hoppe on October 17, 2020 at the age of 85. 

She was born in Golling, Austria on September 25, 1935, the daughter of Anton and Mareclla Reindl (deceased). 

In her early twenties she emigrated to Canada where she later met and married Peter Hoppe, the love of her life. 

They shared wonderful times together in their log cabin set in the bush on the outskirts of Uxbridge.  An unpaved Lakeridge Road was their primary means of commuting daily to Toronto for her job at Tip Top Tailor, which according to Marcella, was always an adventure, especially in winter. 

With Peter’s tragic death from a trucking accident in 1984, taking care of their rural property became her full-time commitment.

Marcella had a kind and generous spirit, and played an integral and important part in the lives of her dear friends’ children. She is survived by her sister Hildegard, who resides in Austria and many wonderful friends both here and abroad. 

As per her wishes, she was cremated and no memorial service is to be held. 

Should you choose, donations to the Uxbridge/Scugog Animal Shelter would be much appreciated given Marcella’s love of all creatures great and small, and so very dear to her heart.
