Wanda Lee Coppens, 65, Green Bay, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, March 5, 2020, at a local hospital surrounded by her loving family.

One of her favorite sayings was “eat it whether you are hungry or not.” She was an avid Packer fan and enjoyed spending her free time playing bingo, crazy 8’s, slots, and taking care of her family.

She will be deeply missed by her loving husband, Len; daughter, Tami and her special friend Keith, Pound, WI; son, Scott (Becky) Coppens, New Franken; 4 grandchildren: Alex (Jazi), Trevor Phillips, Hope (Nate) Coppens, and Claire Coppens; 3 sisters: Donna Lemmen, Karen (Dean) Gigot, and Bonnie DeBauche; 4 brothers: Jim (Mary) Tenor, Ken (Gigi) Tenor, Dave (Donna) Tenor, and Denny (Jane) Tenor; Len's family--Mother-in-law, Lucy Coppens; 4 sisters-in-law: Judy Kropp, Sharon (Carl) Coppens, Linda (Ed) Van Den Eng, and Susan Hall; 3 brothers-in-law, Bob (Jodi) Coppens, Danny Coppens, and Thomas Coppens, Sr.; and many loving nieces, nephews and many friends.
