Jane Choplin Roes, 76 of Huntersville died November 24, 2020. She was born on July 1, 1944 in Missouri to the late David and Louise Choplin.
Jane is well known as an active Ministry Partner of Lake Forest Church, Huntersville. She also helped to start the Lake Norman Community Bible Study. But, as her family, we know her as a non-horseback riding, non-jet-skiing, shoe collecting, shopaholic (we are still receiving boxes from Zulily). A woman who hated being called a Proverbs 31 woman but was one anyway. She was always ready to laugh, always ready to make us laugh, and never met a stranger (especially restaurant servers and store clerks – who would tell her their entire life stories) She was a nails and hair fashionista, who was a non-skiing, travel loving, grandson spoiling, Blumenthal Theater loving, thespian.
She enjoyed being an Open Kitchen eating, Holder-of-Court (on the condo back porch and Lake Forest tall back table), retired great cook (“I know how to cook, I just don’t”), music loving, dad-joke eye rolling, single eyebrow raising (when angry), prayer warrior, mentor, and master of a strong-willed-child (Courtney).
She was an avid reader, seasonal themed decorator with immaculate penmanship. She was a Hallmark movie and HGTV watching, non-Marvel/StarWars watching, crossword puzzle wizard, who was a good listener, master hugger, and Jesus-loving Home Group co-leader. She was a tenacious, humble, and adventurous companion, who loved her family, loved making memories, keeping traditions and she made friends easily. She was a thoughtful mother-in-law, an amazing grandmother, a precious mother, and perfect match (54 years) for Allen.
Survivors include her husband Allen Roes; daughter, Gina Roes of Huntersville; son, Courtney Roes and wife Krista of Kandern, Germany; grandson, Alex; sister, Sara Brady; and sister-in-law, Bonnie Choplin. Her brother David Choplin preceded her in death.
