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.
