Harriet J. Kopetsky, age 95 of Manitowoc, entered eternal life on Thursday, August 31, 2023, at the Lakehouse of Manitowoc.

Harriet was born on August 8, 1928, in Manitowoc, daughter of the late Harold and Margaret (Schleisleder) Hall. She was a graduate of Manitowoc Lincoln High School with the class of 1946. On May 13, 1950, she married Gordon F. Kopetsky at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Manitowoc. He preceded her in death on September 20, 2019. Harriet was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She enjoyed reading, playing cards, especially bridge, and spending time at the Holy Family Wellness Center. For a number of years, she served her Manitowoc community working at the election polls. Harriet was a member of St. Francis of Assisi Parish, St. Claire Society, and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul where she volunteered for many years. Harriet and Gordon were ardent supporters of the Manitowoc-Kamogawa sister city relationship. Over the years, a friendship developed with the Suzuki family and Takeshi became their “Japanese son” enjoying many years of home stay with his “United States parents.”
