Obituary for Charlotte "Chip" Marie Kopesky

Chip received her wings and went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, January 11, 2017. She was a 68 years young. Chip was born in Effingham, IL on March 29, 1948 to her parents Donald and Marie Hicks. She resided and was educated in Indiana. She received her Associates degree and went on to be a Phlebotomist at various hospitals in Indiana. On October 10, 1970, she married Thomas, the love of her life, at St. Therese in Kenosha, WI. Chip and Tom were members of St. Benedict’s in Milwaukee for 40 years. As a family, they were very active in multiple programs that assisted the homeless population of Milwaukee. Chip was a quiet, gentle, soul who always offered patience, kindness and love to all those around her. Whenever you needed a validating giggle, Chip was the one to call. She was a ‘Crafty-Handywoman’ who enjoyed building, creating and fixing anything. On her journey up, she probably stopped to fix a creaky step on the stairway to Heaven. She also found much peace in tending to her rainbow of flower gardens that painted her yard. She enjoyed reading, puzzles, loom knitting and spending every possible moment with her grandchildren. Chip will be deeply missed by her loving husband Thomas; their children, Kelly (Gary) Case, Kimberly (Tyler) Reiter, Michael (Sarah) Kopesky, Sara (Tim) Derrico and Emily (David) Hicks; by their grandchildren, Genavieve, Olivia, Hudson and Hayes Kopesky; Logan Nawrocki, Gracyn and Eden Derrico, Madison and Billie Reiter and Jaxson and Myka Case; and by her siblings, Barbara (Warren) Willy and Larry (DeeDee) Hicks. Chip is also survived by sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Visitation, Saturday, January 21, 2017 at the Funeral Home 11AM until time of Funeral Service at 2PM. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family are appreciated. The family will make donations at a later date to the many Cancer organizations that brought a ray of sunshine to Chip during her strong battle with GBM.
