Beth Harper Schacklette, WAC WWII

Claudia Hollingsworth Chambliss, CalCo Museum Co-Chairperson comes up with some amazing history and artifacts. Last week I received an email from her with the photo and brief memo of Mary Elizabeth “Beth” Hopper Schacklette (1925-1990). The photo accompanies this article. Claudia’s memo states “This is Beth Hopper Schacklette who served in the Women’s Army Corps during WWII. Beth was born and raised in Tinsman near Watson Cemetery. Her parents were Sidney Howard Hopper and Pearl Purvis Hopper. Howard was related to probably half of Tinsman and others that lived in Sparkman and Fordyce. Beth had four siblings: Frances, Ruth, Kenneth, and Roderick. Beth lived most of her life in Kentucky where she settled after the war and later married a native of Kentucky. She had two daughters and grandchildren that live in Kentucky as well.”
