September 4, 1969 - January 3, 2024

RikkiLyn Koppang, age 54, of Mahnomen, MN, died on Wednesday, January 3, 2024, at her home.

RikkiLyn Marie Lund was born on September 4, 1969, in St. Paul, MN, to Harry and Denise (LaDoux) Lund. Rikki attended school in St. Paul before transferring to Fargo South High School, Fargo, ND, where she proudly graduated with the class of 1987. Following graduation, she kept busy working in housekeeping and other occupations.

Fate intervened when Rikki met the love of her life, Kevin Koppang, and they had an instant connection. After several years of dating, the couple were married in April of 2012. Initially residing in Fargo, they later moved to Mahnomen in 2019.

Rikki was known for her kindness, often welcoming stray cats and dogs into her home, offering them warmth, love, and care. This kindness extended into the community as she was always willing to give to others in need. She truly had a heart of gold. Her interests included ancestry and family history, and she expressed her creative side through beadwork, crafting beautiful keepsakes for family and friends. Rikki's home was a sanctuary where she enjoyed cooking, baking, and relaxing with her pets while watching TV. Family was a priority for Rikki, and she loved her husband and family wholeheartedly. Her life was marked by simple joys, a compassionate spirit, and a strong connection with those she cared about.

Rikki is survived by her husband of 11 years, Kevin Koppang; daughter, Briana Oslowski; grandchildren, Kevin and Jax; father, Harry Lund Sr.; mother, Denise (Bernie) Deichert; brothers, Harry Lund, Jr. and Blaine Deichert; sisters, Gail Madson and Crystal; brother-in-law, Rodney Koppang; and sister-in-law, Tammy (Kevin) Shower.
