Carolyn Kopp


Carolyn Kay (Williams) Kopp, of Kansas City, MO., passed, surrounded by her family, to be with our Heavenly Father, Friday, September 20, at the age of 68, in Phoenix, AZ.


Carolyn was born December 2, 1944, the daughter of Charles Kenneth ‘CK’ and Laura Mae Williams, in the small rural town of Elgin, Kansas.


After the passing of her beloved father, Carolyn and her mother moved to Kansas City where she met and married her ‘High School Sweetheart’ Earl E. ‘Skip’ Kopp. Of that union she became the proud mother of four; Scott, Kenneth (deceased), Kelly and Chris.


As a passionate cook, gardener and patron of the arts, she always sought what was most beautiful in this world. It always gave her great joy to share these discoveries with others, most of all with her beloved family. She was loved by all who met her and lived her life for those she loved.


She is survived by her husband Skip, son Scott Kopp, daughter Kelly Kopp Pasquan, son Chris Kopp, grandsons Stephen Pasquan and Hunter Pasquan. She is also survived by her sister Gloria Beuoy and countless beloved friends and family.


Visitation will be from 5 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 01, at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, Wesley Chapel, 13720 Roe Ave., Leawood, KS. Services will be 3 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 02, at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, Wesley Chapel, 13720 Roe Ave., Leawood, KS.


In lieu of flowers, family suggests donations to the Kansas City Symphony.

    Your sweet Carolyn Kopp will be missed by everyone who knew her. She was a beautiful person inside and inside and out and we we re lucky to be her friends. I will miss the birthdays lunches we shared and all the girl talk we exchanged so freely. She was a person who shared herself but we just as interested in you. She was giving, loving and beautiful. I loved her and will miss her terribly. May God bless her family and may they find peace knowing that she is with God.
