Both Ernest Hopkins and Edythe G. Hopkins are buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Mexico, Missouri according to Elmwood records. According to Ernest's obituary, he was predeceased by his wife Edith in 1965 and survived by his wife, Vinita when he died five years later in 1970. It looks like Vinita did marry Ernest after her sister's death. Edith is spelled "Edith" in the obituaries and "Edythe" in the cemetery records.
