Kari Lynn Kopriwa, age 47, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by family on Thursday November 28, 2019. Kari was born on October 26 1972, in Cincinnati to late Jerry Kopriwa and survived Linda (Bagford) Kopriwa. Kari fought against Melanoma for 7 years so graciously and strong. A light and inspiration to everyone she encountered and showed people every day her kind brave heart. She cherished being with her kids, mother, friends and family. Kari was a fabulous friend, loving sister and daughter, giving mother who raised her kids with such strength and selflessness. She showed everyone around her unconditional love and how to live fully through the simple things in life. The best cook, warmest laugh, brightest smile, and most beautiful blue eyes; Kari always knew how to make the most of any situation. She is survived by her two kids, Justin and Kaitlyn Storie, her brother, Brian (Vicki) Kopriwa, her aunt Diane Kopriwa, nieces and nephews, Tony (Alexa) Oaks, Braiden Kopriwa, Hannah Kopriwa and Colin Kopriwa, and many cousins. Friends, family, and others whose lives Kari touched are invited to the Hodapp Funeral Home 6041 Hamilton Avenue, College Hill 45224 on Friday December 6th from 4-7PM.
