Cathy Yvette Cooper, 70

Cathy Yvette Cooper, 70, completed her journey on earth and passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on June 23, 2022 after a brief courageous battle with cancer.

Cathy was the daughter of the late Richard and Doris Bailey and was born on September 15, 1951. Family was so very important to her-she loved hosting gatherings, was interested in genealogy, and traced her family back many generations. She was a graduate of Meigs High School and Ohio University.

She is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Tom; daughters and sons-in-law Sherry and Chris Murphy, and Sharla and Randy Burke; granddaughters Paige Denney, Morgan Denney, and Reagan Burke; siblings Christine (Gary) Sampson; Rich (Rita) Bailey; Carin Taylor, Connie (Chris) Taylor, and Carole (Jeff) Gilkey; and several nieces and nephews.

Cathy was a long time member of the Middleport Church of Christ. After retiring from Ohio University, she was a part-owner of The Fabric Shop in Pomeroy and was a talented seamstress with a special love for quilting. Those who knew her best know nothing gave Cathy more joy than being a doting grandmother (Nana) to her beautiful granddaughters Paige, Morgan, and Reagan.

Services will be at the Anderson McDaniel Funeral Home in Middleport, Ohio, on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, at 1 p.m. with calling hours from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.  Burial will follow at Riverview Cemetery in Middleport, Ohio.
