Norma Jean Edgar-Cooper

The world lost a beloved woman by all who knew her, Mrs. Norma Jean Edgar-Cooper, on June 16, 2021. She transcended to heaven peacefully at her home, in bed, surrounded by her family. She was born in Augusta, GA and was a Jill of all trades; homemaker, roofer, and we even suspected she did some crime fighting from time to time with a magic lasso. Our family truly had our very own Wonder Woman. A loving wife, mama, sister, friend, and nana; who loved to spoil her grandchildren without complaint. Jean battled 4 types of cancer, but it never stopped her bubbly personality or spending time with her family, enjoying good times with laughter. She has always been a very kind hearted and selfless woman who devoted her life to all of her family; she was sweet with a side of sassy (Miss Monroe.) She was an avid collector of hugs, love, purses and jewelry.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Roy Edgar and Dorothy Edgar. Her brothers, Thomas (Ruth) Edgar, David Edgar, Dennis Edgar, Randy Edgar, and sister Jeanette (Raymond) Byce.

She is survived by her loving husband, Peter Cooper; daughter, Lee Ann (William) Hammac; grandchildren, Elesse (Whitney) Lewis, Anthony “Favorite” Hammac; and her loving pet, Buddy “Lil Boy” Cooper; all of whom made up the entirety of her world. As well as surviving brothers and sisters; William (Peggy) Edgar, Judy (Joe) Raborn; Molly (Cliffton) Kneece, Ruth Edgar, Ollie Edgar, Kelly Edgar, and Betty (Michael) Menger. Also, lovingly remembered by a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

The Edgar-Cooper family will receive friends at a visitation to be held on June 26, 2021, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Chance and Hydrick Funeral Directors.  A celebration of life memorial will be held on June 27, 2021, at 2:00 pm.

Chance & Hydrick Funeral Directors, 2502 Richmond Hill Rd, Augusta, GA 30906.

  1. Jean was my best friend I have had for the last 11 years we did everything together. She always wanted to go the Suzan way ( which I did not get on interstate) for she was afraid of big truck. I will miss her terriblely.

  2. Jean will always hold a special place in my heart, she was true woman of Southern Hospitality and a Unique personality that can never be replaced. You will be missed Jean.

  3. Jean is my brother’s wife. I have been privileged to know this remarkable woman. Just before she passed she related some very remarkable experiences that let me know that her time with us was soon to end. The words she told me were the last I heard from her. The one thing that she told me before she died was that I hope I’ll never forget is “sacrificing is very important.” Jean did that for those she loved. I mean who has ever heard of a woman that would be willing to give up the safety of being on the ground, air conditioning, and get up on a roof to tear off shingles! And she didn’t do that just to have spending money she did that for the people she loved to help them in their time of need.

  4. Jean is my dear cousin. She and her brothers and sisters were more like our brothers and sisters than cousins. We were all raised together. We all love Jean with all our hearts. We will miss her so much. I would see her everytime I went to Wal-Mart. She always had a big smile in her face and a warm hug. We love you all and pray God gives you all strength, and the courage to endure till you see her again at the Resurrection.
    John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:3-5. These are very encouraging scriptures
    Love you all.
