Barbara was born in Long Lake, New York on January 5th, 1937 daughter of Eva and Cloyd Black. She never forgot her humble upbringing. Barbara graduated from Long Lake High School and then went on to secretarial school in Washington D.C. where she met the love of her life, Lee. They were married in 1959. They subsequently moved to Minnesota where she devoted and dedicated her life to raising her four children. She was the best mother anyone could ask for. Barbara and Lee shared a love of golf and tennis. All those who knew her, knew her as a woman of tremendous kindness and generosity. She and her husband Lee were great philanthropists who established the Kopp Family Foundation in 1986. Through the Foundation they have touched countless lives. She will never be forgotten, and she will be truly missed.
