Obituary Condolences

COOPER Mrs. Jeanne Cooper, age 78, beloved wife of the late Richard Lee "Dick" Cooper, of Amelia Island Plantation, passed away on Monday morning, December 29, 2008 at Osprey Village on Amelia Island, Florida. Born in Lancaster, Ohio to the late Ernest and Eva Gatten Brown, she has been a resident of Amelia Island since 1974. In 1946 she met her future husband, Dick Cooper, whom she married on April 29, 1950. After being married for 58 years, Mr. Cooper passed away on December 7th of this year. An unassuming lady, full of class and dignity, Mrs. Cooper was the epitome of "the woman beside the man". She was the support and shoulder that her husband needed throughout his career that allowed him to accomplish many business and personal goals. The three week period following his death was the only time that they had been apart; now they are reunited. Her quick wit and great sense of humor earned her the name "The Queen" by her Angel Watch caregivers. A woman that loved unconditionally, she had the natural ability to make a friend, be a friend and make everyone feel special. Mrs. Cooper shared in her husband's charitable and philanthropic endeavors as well as being very involved with "Shoes for Kids" and "Meals on Wheels". She was an avid player of "Mah Jongg" and was a member of the Amelia Island Plantation Ladies Association. She leaves behind, their son, Rick Cooper and his wife Suzanne, Cleveland, OH, their daughter, Diane Cooper Miller and her husband Craig, Amelia Island Plantation, FL, her sister, Martha Leach and her husband Bob, Lancaster, OH / Palm Coast, FL, a brother in law, Gary Cooper and his wife Ruth, Columbus, OH, four grandchildren, Jessica Sloan and her husband, Bob, Pittsburgh, PA, Benjamin Cooper, Cleveland, OH, Shane Murton and his wife Nicole, Jacksonville, FL, Zachary Cooper, Bloomington, IN, three great grandchildren, Madison Sloan, Robbie Sloan, Jackson Murton and many nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be at 10:00 am on Saturday, at a place she loved, Amelia Island Plantation's Walker's Landing with Chaplain Jim Tippins, officiating. Mrs. Cooper will be laid to rest on Saturday, January 10, 2009 beside her husband in Lakewood Park Cemetery, Cleveland, OH.
