The Cooper Family
We Celebrate the Life of Mary Eve Cooper
10 SEPTEMBER 1959 – 23 NOVEMBER 2021
There is a train at the station. With a seat reserved just for me
I am excited about its destination. As I’ve heard it sets you free
The trials and tribulations. The pain and stress we breathe
Do not exist where I am going, Only happiness I believe.
I hope that you will be there. To wish me on my way
It is not a journey you can join in. It’s not your time today
There will be many destinations. Some are happy. Some are sad
Each one a brief reminder. Of the great times that we have had
Many friends I know are waiting. Who took an earlier train
To greet and reassure me. That nothing has really changed
We will take the time together. To catch up on the past
To build a new beginning. One that will always last
One day you will take your journey. On the train just like me
And I promise that I will be there. At the station and you will see
That Life is just a journey. Enriched by those you meet
No one can take that from you. It’s always yours to keep’
But now as no seat is vacant. You will have to muddle through
Make sure you fulfill your ambitions. As you know I’ll be watching you
And if there is an occasion. To mention who you knew
Speak kindly of that person. As one day it will be you
Now I can accept this ending, and as it is time for me to leave

We all will miss her.
Thinking of you and your family
Stephen & Marie Dillon and Family

I met Eve when I was only 10 years old. My family was new to the neighborhood. Eve and her brothers and sisters all welcomed my family to the neighborhood. We became friends quickly. I had the pleasure of sharing my childhood with her and her family. Eve could brighten the room with her smile, she always could make me laugh no matter what mood I was in. I looked at her as a kind of older sister because she was only a few months older than me. I began to miss her and her entire family many years ago , as time and lifestyles lead us in different directions. I find comfort in knowing that I will see her again soon when my mission in this place has ended. May our God bless and keep you all.

I am deeply sorry that Eve had to leave so early. I have never met Eve in person, but I have met both of her daughters and have worked with one of them during the time she lived in İstanbul, Turkey. I never got a chance to thank her for doing such a good job in raising such a fine daughter, whom I have come to love and respect very much.
Thank you Eve!
You can rest peacefully since your legacy will prevail as you watch over your family from the heavens above.

My love for Eve was known by all. You were the best sister, wife, mother, grammy, friend ~ the best person anyone could ever meet. Your love of life and happiness was contagious & infected everyone you met. I miss you & will love you forever.

Although I only knew Eve for a few short years she was one of the loveliest people I have ever known. Her smile and her laughter were infectious. Her devotion to family was inspiring to others.

Dear Cooper Family,
We're sorry for your loss. The world is a less bright place without Eve. She'll be remembered for her laughter, her indefatigable spirit, her outgoing personality, and her kindness. I first met Eve years ago when I knocked on the door to deliver a check and she greeted me like a long lost friend. It was like getting a warm bear hug and every conversation after that day felt the same. Eve shared her zest for life with her neighbors through yard decorations, cook outs, the Little Library, a house full of love...and dogs! During the past year when we saw her, she laughed at her new curly hair. She waved and called out to us with pure joy recently when she returned home from the zoo with her grand child. May your own cherished memories of this incredible woman get you through the days ahead. Our deepest condolences.
