A memorial service for Rosa will be held Aug. 16 at 11 a.m. at Christ United Methodist Church.

Mrs. Hupka, of Daphne, Ala., departed this life July 14, 2014 following a short illness.

Born Sept. 23, 1917 in Shohola, Pa., she was married for 39 years to Dr. Carlyle C. Hupka, who passed away in 1980. Rosa's life was marked by her dedication to their family, her strong Christian faith and her loyalty to friends. She was a remarkable woman who considered others' needs above her own and who brought a sense of joy and vitality to every setting.

Rosa is survived by her sons, James Carlyle Hupka and his wife, Lynne, of Lebanon; and Robert Frederick Hupka, of Daphne; four grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and one nephew.

Her oldest son, Richard Raymond Hupka, died in 1995.
