 Obituary

     Dorothy E. Cooper, age 72, of Dayton, OH, passed away Friday, May 20, 2022 at Gem City Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Dayton, OH. She was born July 29, 1949 in Dayton, OH. Dorothy was the daughter of the late Marie and Wesley Judkins. 

     Dorothy received her education at Wogaman Elementary School. She was employed at the Marriott on Patterson Blvd. for several years and she also was a devoted house-keeper to the Shine family of Kettering, OH. She was also a devoted member of The Truth Christian Service Center for several years until she was no longer able to attend due to health challenges. Dorothy had a fighting spirit and what should have taken her out 40 years ago, had no victory over her as faith and family were the driving force behind her fight for life. Dorothy loved to laugh and play as well as sing along with her favorite old skool artists. Her all-time favorite artist to mimic in song was Aretha Franklin and man could she sing as well as Aretha! It seems we can still here her voice singing “Ain’t No Way”…. Sing Dorothy, Sing!!!

     Along with her parents, Dorothy is preceded in death by all her siblings Herman, Frank, Paul, Emmanuel and Katherine Judkins, Daisy Graham, Josie Elston, Rosie Elston and Mary Bridges. She was also preceded in death by her grandson Jaytron Cooper, great grandson Stefoun D. Hunter Jr. and great granddaughter Versace Frances Johnson.   

     Dorothy is survived by her loving children, Barbara Cooper-Orr, Joseph Cooper Jr., Rickey Cooper, Donna Cooper, Myrick Cooper, Maurice Cooper,  forever friend Joseph Cooper, Sr., 22+ grandchildren, 40+ great-grandchildren, devoted nephew Michael Bridges, Sr., a host of relatives and friends.
