Paris Loretta Chopper, age 30 of the Spirit Lake Tribe of ND went home to be with our Lord and Savior on August 30, 2021 in Poplar, MT.
Paris was born on April 2, 1991 to Abraham “Bear” Chopper, Jr. and Althea “Sona” Longie but raised by her grandparents, Lorene and Douglas Michel.
On June 23, 2013, Paris was blessed with a son, Zayden Michel Abraham Chopper, who she lovingly called her “big baby”. She attended school in Devils Lake, ND, Sioux Falls, SD and ended her sophomore year in Parkston, SD.
Paris held various jobs including Cavendish, McDonald’s, Taco John’s, Taco Bell, Subway and Goodwill in Jamestown, ND and Don’s Carwash in Fargo, ND. She loved going for walks and spending time with friends and family. She always had a big smile on her face and had us laughing just because she was such a goofball.
