Looking after Sleepy Hollow Cemetery turns into lifetime career
Casting about for a summer job as a 17-year-old high school student, Tish Hopkins began mowing lawns at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in her hometown of Concord. She loved working outside and the camaraderie among the town’s public works employees. Her father, uncle, and cousin also worked for Concord, so when she asked her father to see if the town could use her, he found her a spot. Twenty-four years later, she is still there, still loving it.
