Wopke Emma Scullion
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Wopke Emma Scullion on November 2nd, 2019 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital. Wopke was born on March 4th, 1940 in Hannover, Germany. Her early life included apprenticing in the fine leather goods trade, attending the opera, and participating in various other cultural and athletic endeavours including memberships in a variety of private sporting clubs. Wopke arrived in Canada in 1965 as a military spouse with two babies and expecting a third.
Years later Wopke started her own business, Wopke’s Plant Care. She was known to many as "The Plant Lady." Wopke endeared herself to everyone who met her with her frank and honest personality.
Wopke is survived by her three sons; John (Karen), Robert, Dion (Monique) and several grandchildren, and great grandchildren. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her second husband Eugene "Gene" D. O’Brien.
At Wopke’s request there will be no visitation or formal service. Donations in Wopke’s memory may be made to the Chalmers Foundation.
