Marion Coppens, 95, Green Bay, passed away Monday evening, June 19, 2017, at a local care facility. Born June 2, 1922, the youngest child of John and Mary (Stepeck) Hooper in Klondike, WI. She was a graduate of Coleman High School in 1940 and graduated from vocational school in Green Bay studying bookkeeping.

Following school, she was employed in Oconto Falls where she met and married Phillip Coppens on August 26, 1944, and he preceded her in death on April 22, 2001. The couple made their home in Oconto Falls where they raised their two daughters and also owned Coppens Implement Sales. The family eventually moved to Green Bay. Marion continued to work as a bookkeeper and secretary until her retirement. She will be remembered for her enjoyment of knitting, crossword puzzles and playing cards with her friends.
