Jim, I loved talking to you. You will be greatly missed. Keep all those boys in line up there.
I worked with Jim at Penneys over 22 years ago and think of him often. He was a joy to work with. In a competitive, commissioned department he was so generous and kind! He would start his shift straightening and organizing the work area, (he liked things neat) and then spent the rest of the time joking around with customers and employees. He would introduce me to customers as his girlfriend. (Kept me smiling.) I admired the amount of energy he had and wondered at how he never seemed to slow down.
I was so sad when I heard of his passing, but the more I remembered, the more I smiled. I'm glad he lived such a good, long life and was blessed with such a big family. And now he can rest in heaven.
Sorry all of you for your loss.
You bought me my first "diamond ring"
and I was proud as I could be.
Uncle Jim, you will be missed and thought of and talked about for many year s to come.
Best to all of your children and sisters,Natalie and Mary.
your 'elderly' niece,
Karen Cooney Breese
Sorry for your loss.
Your laughter was contagious, the few jokes you told were the ones that made you cry as you told them, Can't help but to laugh right along with you. I know the cards are flying across the table with your 6 brothers and the whisky is flowing. Itsallgood!! Thank you for visiting 2051 West Welch Road when I was still living at home, your words of wisdom, calm character, and being an awesome uncle to me was very well received. Hugs from Heaven.
Uncle Jim was my godfather and the 29th street Cooney's send their condolences to his family and many friends. Can't imagine the card games the Cooney boys will have when Jim gets all the Brothers together.
All the best

I worked with Jim at JC Penney. My heart lies heavy and my tears roll slowly down my cheeks. He was a wonderful man. He made my smile everytime I saw him. I have only but a few fond memories of Jim, but all of them make me smile. My condolences
I knew Jim when I worked at Cousin's. He was always in there playing pool. What a character he was....always made me laugh...super guy!! Prayers to all of you. He lived a good life...RIP Jim.
It was sad to read of Jim Coony's passing. I have fond memories of Jim while working at GE many years ago. He had finance responsibilities at Grove City. Jim had a great sense of humor and was a stand up guy and solid professional. He will be missed by all that knew him.
You go through life being impacted by much. Some things good and some things not so good. I am thankful to have known Jim Cooney. He impacted my life in such an unforgettable way. His generosity, his sense of humor, his friendliness to all will be remembered by those who knew him. Rest in peace my friend. I will never forget you.
Dad, you will be sadly missed by all of those who you have touched. You are with mom now and you will always be in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Greg ( Mom's favorite)
