Letitia “Tish” Marie Kopp, 72, died peacefully June 8, 2014, surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer. Tish was born on Nov. 29, 1941, to John and Evelyn Adams in Kent Ohio. She was preceded in death by her husband of almost 50 years, John; brother, Tim; and parents, John and Evelyn. She was a loving mother to Stan (Kim), John, Pam (Steve), Kathy (Joe) and Mary; grandmother to Nichole, Jimmy, Sammy, Vincent, Tony, Kayla, Dominick, Rachel, Mark, Jacob, Nick, Michael, Dennis and Zack; and great-grandmother to James.
Tish loved children and spent many years babysitting the neighborhood kids while raising five of her own. Later she worked for 20 years as a teaching assistant at Gold Oak Elementary School before retiring. She was known for her love of jewelry making and was an avid reader of true crime novels. She was the strongest woman we knew and no matter what the circumstances, would always reassure us that everything was going to be alright. She was “Crazy Grandma” to all her grandchildren and just “Ma” to us kids. She will be forever loved. In the words of her father, John Adams, “Ma, ya played a dirty trick on us.”
A rosary will be held Saturday, June 14, at 12 p.m., at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Placerville for those who wish to attend.
