Obituary for Nancy Marie Kopplin

Nancy Marie Kopplin née Aldridge, 77, passed away on Friday, December 1, 2017, surrounded by family and friends in Wausau, WI. 

She was born on January 23, 1940 to William and Evelyn Aldridge, Nancy, a lifelong resident of Schofield, was beloved by many for her kindness, unselfishness and compassion. She was the proud wife of Terrance O. Kopplin, the mother of Steven, Bruce, Mark, Paul and Michael Kopplin and the grandmother of Jason, Kaitlin, Matthew, Elizabeth and Elijah Kopplin. Terrance and Bruce preceded her in death. She is also survived by her sisters, Merceda Gehrke and Shirley Check. Her siblings Donald Aldridge, Dale Aldridge and Dolores Furger preceded her in death. 

Nancy was an active member of St. Therese Parish, where she taught Sunday school for many years. Teaching and caring for children was her number one passion. She enjoyed being a teacher, mother and grandmother more than anything in the world. 

In 2009, Nancy's liver suddenly and unexpectedly failed, bringing her days from death. She was blessed with a liver donation from an unknown family after a tragic accident. She always made a point to send the donor family, who wished to remain anonymous, a 'thank you' card every year on her 'second birthday'. She wished she could have thanked them in person for the extra time she was given with her family. She became an advocate for organ donation and would tell people to check the box to be an organ donor. In Nancy's memory, please make sure you are an organ donor. The gift of life is the best gift you can ever give or receive.

Because of her second chance at life, Nancy never took a single day for granted. She filled her bonus 8 years with trips all over the United States and made the most of her time with her family and friends. She especially loved traveling to Las Vegas and Los Angeles. 

Family would like to extend a special thank you to U.W. Transplant Department and Aspirus Wausau Hospital Palliative Care Team.
