Shirley June Cooper (nee Suggett): b. May 10, 1926
June passed away peacefully on August 29, 2018 at the age of 92. Beloved wife (of 65 years) of the late Vic Cooper (d. 2011). June will be missed and fondly remembered by her children Rick Cooper (Alison), Tim Cooper (Janice), Pam Barrett (Bill) and Patti
Forrest (John), as well as her nine grandchildren Jennifer and Meghan
Cooper (Erich), Leanne Wrench (Dan) and Sean Brazil, Tricia (Mark) and Cassie Barrett,
Brandon (Alyssa), Greg, and Blair Forrest, and her ten great grandchildren.
June lived the first half of her life on Hamilton's East Mountain before moving to the West Mountain. She married Vic shortly after he came home from WWII and worked alongside him at Cooper's Flower Shop while raising their four children.
She volunteered for many years with the Girl Guides of Canada and was later a proud member of the Trefoil Guild. She was an active member of the congregation at Mount Hamilton United Church.
June's loyalty, generosity and kindness encircled and nurtured her extensive network of family and life-long friends. She was always eager to lend a hand, provide a meal, play a game or throw a party. She loved her cottage at Turkey Point, infants and children, big band music, and finding a good bargain.
A private family service is being arranged, Condolences may be expressed through MA Clark & Sons website at maclarkfuneralhome.com. Special thanks to all the staff at Idlewyld Manor.
