SWOP4G will miss our friend, and former President, Lisa Koppin

The SWOP4G community lost one of our longtime friends earlier this month with the passing of Lisa Knopp-Koppin. Lisa was a longtime member of SWOP4G, and twice served as President. Lisa also served as Secretary of CO-OPP, and many of of our members came to know her through both of these purchasing organizations.

Our hearts go out to Lisa’s family and friends in these difficult times. Lisa will be missed by all of us at SWOP4G.

Lisa M Knopp-Koppin, 44, of Union passed away suddenly on July 1 2018. Lisa was a long-time resident of Union where she resided with her partner, Rick Youngkrantz.
