Elaine​ ​‘Lisa’ Judith Sylvina Hopgood, known as Lisa, beloved eldest daughter of the late Roy and Pamela Hopgood was born on the 24t​ h​ April 1961 in Devizes Maternity Hospital and passed away on the 19t​ h​ June 2020 at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon.

Lisa is survived by her loving partner Alan and son Luke, twin brother Julian, sister Laura and elder brother Paul. Lisa attended Devizes School and was a gifted and popular student, both academically and on the sports field culminating in her being appointed Head Girl. Lisa had many friends both locally and further afield. She enjoyed being an active participant in the local Devizes Community, both professionally and socially.

Following school, Lisa trained to be a physiotherapist at the Birmingham School of Physiotherapy. She pursued a 30-year career as a physiotherapist, predominantly in the NHS, including positions at Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton and a Senior Paediatric Community role based in Swindon and then Bath. She also enjoyed a 4-year period as a Physiotherapist in Newfoundland (Canada). In more recent years, Lisa expanded her skills as a physiotherapist and trained in Bowen Therapy establishing her own rewarding and successful independent practice.

Lisa will be forever remembered for her wonderful smile and cheery voice that lit up a room. She had such incredible generosity, wisdom, compassion and joy of life.

In 2018, Lisa was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Despite the diagnosis, Lisa remained cheerful and positive until her passing. No flowers, all donations go to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Lisa took great strength and inspiration from Doddie’s positive approach to this cruel disease.

A private family service will be held at West Wiltshire Crematorium, Semington, on Friday 3rd July at 12.15.

If you wish to pay your respects, the procession will be passing through Longcroft Road at 11.45.

So saddened to hear today that Lisa has passed away. I would have loved to be able to pay my respects. We were neighbours in Longcroft Rd and Lisa worked her magic on me with her Bowen therapy. She was a very special lady and we would like to send love and best wishes to her family.

  • Dear Alan, I am so saddened to hear of Lisa’s passing. Such a cruel disease. I spent three happy years training with her at the ROH, and sharing a house. You may remember me. You must miss her terribly. Take care. Karen Pearson (nee Harding) xx

Just one of the many happy memories and fun times we had together. Another Murder Mystery when everyone was in role and Ian proposed to Lisa (right in front of Alan) and my brother thought it was a genuine proposal which caused much amusement!

Doddy's TV documentary and attitude for living gave Lisa so much comfort...the foundation a fitting charity to donate to.
