Memphis, TN

Cathy Lynn Coop Edmundson of Memphis, TN, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and sister, passed away on May 10 after a life filled with love and happiness.

She was born in Collierville, TN on March 11, 1954 to the late Bryan Milton Coop and Donnie Sue Coop.

Cathy attended Collierville High School and Hollins College. She graduated from Rhodes College (Southwestern) where she majored in religious studies and philosophy. On February 16, 1975 she married her love, Steve.

With brief stints in Russellville, AR and Breckenridge, CO, Cathy and Steve eventually returned to her beloved midtown Memphis in 1986, where they raised their family. In 1991, Cathy and Steve opened the doors to Kudzu's Bar and Grill, where Cathy served as owner and operator, greeting her customers with a warm smile and comfort food for over 20 years.

Cathy loved boxer dogs and gardening but her greatest joy, however, was her family. She is preceded in death by her parents Bryan and Donnie Coop; grandparents John and Corrine Coop and Henry and Alva "Pete" Hill. Cathy is survived by her husband, Steve; sons Grier (Amelie), Bryan, and Colin; granddaughters Louise and Paule; brothers Mike Coop (Jane), and John Coop (Teresa); Aunt Ellen Hill McCachren (James) and more nieces and nephews than she could ever count.

Cathy has chosen to donate her body to Genesis Medical Research and a celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider Habitat for Humanity, , Memphis Inter Faith Association or the Overton Park Conservancy.
