  • Interesting story. I had never heard of her.

  • I only knew of her through the Elks Club fire story. I was pleased, when I found the article about her retirement.

    Thanks for reading.

  • What would she think of the world as it is today! Whew!

  • When you see old movies, all of the rooming houses are owned by Ma somebody. In Gunsmoke, it was Ma Smalley. In It's a Wonderful Life, George Bailey's mother (had he never been born), ran Ma Bailey's Boarding House. Ma Kopper sounds like the kind of person we need a lot more of. Great story. (Is her former property now "The Bar" which will be in the movie?)

  • Yes, JungleJim. Ma Kopper's boarding house was on the site of "The Bar." Small world, yes?
