Lindsay Torreblanca

By
January 14, 2010 |

Lindsay Elizabeth Torreblanca, a Davis resident for the past 37 years, died Jan. 3, 2010, surrounded by family at her home. Born April 29, 1943, in Guayaquil, Ecuador, to Albert and Marian Hopson, she was 66 years old. Lindsay spent her childhood living throughout South America but was primarily raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

She came to the United States for college and attended Mount Holyoke in Massachusetts. Following college, she studied in Madrid, Spain, where she met and fell in love with her husband, Maximo Torreblanca. They lived for several years in Spain before eventually settling in Davis where their two daughters, Antonia and Marian, were born and raised. She was a homemaker and teacher.

Her husband is a retired professor of linguistics at UC Davis where Lindsay completed her masterÕs degree in Spanish. She loved being a part of the Davis community and her favorite activities were tending to her roses, visiting the Davis FarmersÕ Market, knitting and spending time with friends and family.

She spent the last year and a half bravely battling cancer. She will be remembered for her warm smile, generous nature and calm spirit. She was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, neighbor and friend who will be sorely missed.

A celebration of life will take place this spring; the date is still to be determined.

She is survived by her husband, Maximo Torreblanca of Davis; daughter, Antonia Torreblanca and her husband Jason Cohen and grandson Joaquin Cohen, of Berkeley; daughter, Marian Echols and her husband Keith Echols of San Francisco; and brothers Jim Hopson of Milwaukee, Wis., and David Hopson of Dallas, Texas.
