Obituary Condolences

Hooper, Nancy
75, of Phoenix, AZ passed away on 10/14/15. Nancy Berlin Hooper, 75, of Phoenix, AZ, finished a long and beautiful life on October 14, 2015 in Phoenix with her daughter by her side. Nancy's beautiful smile, strong spirit, and sweet nature will be missed by many. Nancy was born in Charleston, IL on September 25, 1940. She graduated from Woodstock High School in 1958 and earned the crowns of Miss Woodstock and Miss McHenry County. Nancy moved to Phoenix in 1990. She loved the outdoors, gardening, and she was an avid golfer. Nancy enjoyed quilting, knitting; in her later years she spent much of her time crocheting baby blankets for donation to the local hospital's maternity ward. After retirement, despite her failing health, Nancy lived life to the fullest. She enjoyed spending more quality time with her daughter; no adventure was too big or too small. They traveled the country visiting family and friends throughout the U.S. Nancy was greeted with loving arms at heaven's gate by her son, Steve Hooper; infant daughter, Katherine Mary Hooper; parents Gilbert and Mildred Berlin; brothers Rex and Don Berlin; and her sister LaVerne Helm. Nancy is survived by her daughter, Mary Shaw; and her three brothers Jack (Jane) Berlin; Charles (Shirley) Berlin and Tom Berlin. Inspired by her son's gift of organ and tissue donation, Nancy was also a donor. A celebration of life memorial service will be planned at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Nancy's memory may be made to Gift Of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network in Illinois. http://www.giftofhope.org/about/monetary_donation.htm
