Ann Cooley, age 72, passed away Tuesday, December 10, 2019 in Tyler, Texas. Ann was born January 1, 1947 in Tyler, Texas to Charles and Charlotte Gentry.

Ann was a deeply caring, patient and giving woman. To her, family was the most important thing there was and will be. She was a quiet, reserved woman, which is why she was such a good listener, but she also had a great sense of humor as well. Her interest and hobbies were her family. Her grandchildren called her “Meme” or “Mama Ann.” Ann will be greatly missed by many.

Ann is preceded in death by her husband, Jerry L. Cooley and her parents, Charles and Charlotte Gentry. She is survived by her three sons; Todd Cooley (Kathy), Tony Cooley (Ann) and Johnny Cooley (Allison), grandchildren; Amanda, JT, Adam, Tyler, Nathan, Makaliah, Maggie, Ethan, Peyton, Kylee, Kellan, Elaine, and Justin, great grandchildren; Lawson, Lincoln, Jayden, Dawson, Kamdyn, Kinsler and Kyser, brother, Steve Gentry and other loving family members and friends.

I met your Mother when we started to Jr High School at Roberts Jr. High. Had many fun times with her and our group of friends. Like usual we had drifted apart but I still hold my memories of Ann in my heart.

I first met Ann when we were just 6-8 years old. Our parents were neighbors most of their life. I loved Ann’s laughter, smile and good heart. Along with my brothers (Danny, Jake and Butch), Ann and Steve and our other neighbor, Sherry, we kept the neighborhood jumping. Lots of
Great memories. She was precious!!

May God give strength and peace to her family.

We were close cousins. We dated and married best friends. Ann and Jerry introduced me to my husband. We all shared a lot of memories together. I’m far away but my heart is there with you. May the peace of God be with the family
