Sally H. Kopp passed away peacefully in her home on February 3, 2017 at the age of 71.
She was born on January 20, 1946 in Tupper Lake to Morris and Kathleen “Sally” Sequin.
Sally attended Tupper Lake High School and went on to North Country Community College. She married Jon Kopp, and together they had two children, Jonn and Kimberly. They also hosted Fresh Air Children for years.
Sally was a very dedicated mother, staying home to raise her children when they were young, and at times working the family antique store. Later she worked for the county, helping families to provide healthy meals on limited budgets before she went to work at Sunmount DDSO where she worked until her retirement.
After retiring from Sunmount, she kept busy with cleaning camps and became a foster grandparent at the Tupper Lake Central School district. She was a kind soul who enjoyed simple things. Much of Sally’s time was spent volunteering. She helped out in many local places like the food pantry, the Wild Center, The Tin Man Triathlon and Relay for Life. She was a member of the Red Hat Society. She liked flowers, farming, knitting and horses. She had a total love and understanding for all, but her favorite thing was being with family.
She is survived by her son Jonn, daughter, Kimberly and grandchildren Jon Thomas, Garrett and Tamika.
Sally also has two great grandchildren, Kobe and Lyrica.
Calling hours will be held at Stuart-Fortune-Keough Funeral home in Tupper Lake, from 2p.m. to 4p.m. on Wednesday February 8 with a service following at 4p.m.. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hope Lodge in Burlington VT.
