Anna Irabelle (Dennis) Cooley Obituary
Anna Irabelle Dennis Cooley, daughter of Erwin Dale & Elsie Dennis, lost the battle of her life after 13 years at Hillsdale County Medical Care.

She was the oldest of six children, Erwin Jr., Donald, Iris, Frances, and Rose Marie. The wife of Harold Robert Cooley; mother of Minnta Ellen Davis, Priscilla Ann Pennington, Janice Marie Fowler, and Harold Jr. Grandmother of 14; great-grandmother of 24; great-great grandmother of nine.

Many will remember her as Scout Leader, 4-H leader, baseball coach, and the many homemade sweets she showed up at a classroom with. She and Harold were back yard mechanics and repaired radios and TV's together. She loved her job at Kitty Brush & Toy. While in Pennsylvania she had a bakery and enjoyed helping an auctioneer on Saturday nights. When they had the opportunity to buy an upholstery business in Michigan it didn't take them long to pack and move back close to family.

Harold died in 1980 but she kept the business going until she had a stroke that left her unable to do the work anymore. Her last 14 years she has been the official greeter on the second floor at the Medical Care.

Everyone knew Anna and her ready smile and wave as they went by.

Per Anna's request there is only a visitation Sunday from 2-5 P.M., at the VanHorn-Eagle Funeral Home in Hillsdale.
