Madison-Christine M. (Keta) Kopp, age 94, died on Thursday, November 21, 2013 at Girlies Manor in Cross Plains.

She was born on April 25, 1919 to Sam and Mary Everson, and grew up on their farm in rural McFarland. From 1938 to 1948, she worked at the Bell Telephone Company on the Capital Square and lived downtown.

On April 8, 1948 Christine married Robert J. (Bob) Kopp, who preceded her in death in 2006. In about 1952, they moved into their new home in “Skunk Hollow” near Seminole Highway and lived there until 2006.

As recently as this past summer, Christine could be seen sitting outside Girlies in her wheelchair working on her tan, one of her favorite past times. She also loved to sing and the color blue.

Mark and Jane Kopp wish to thank Doug and the entire staff at Girlies Manor for their patient and compassionate care these past 7 years. Thanks also to Agrace Hospice and Dr. Pamela Olson and her staff at UW Health.

At Christine’s request, there will be no services.

    Who was James Foley?

    James Foley was an American photojournalist who went missing in Syria almost two years ago.
