The Late Dolly Dennis Urey Cooper

SUNRISE: MAY 6, 1928

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”  2 Timothy 4: 7-8

The Cooper, Dennis, Yarngo, Walker, and Urey families announce with profound regrets the home going of their loving and devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and cousin, the late Mrs. Dolly Dennis Urey Cooper. This sad event occurred on Thursday, January 31, 2019 with her children by her bed side, in Sewell, NJ, USA.,

Aunt Dolly, Teacher Dolly, Godma Dolly as she was affectionately called, was married to the late Captain William Urey and later after his death, she then married to the late Mr. Tommy G. Cooper. Therefore, she was predeceased by both husbands and her parents, the late James W. Dennis, Sr. and the late Pollan Carter-Dennis.

Aunt Dolly leaves to mourn her loss, her children, Josephine Cooper-Gibson, Dr. Jesse M Cooper, Sr. (Gertrude), Catherine Vincent (Joseph), Yarnga Trocon Cooper-Williams (Joe), Joseph Cooper (Martha), Clarise Walker, Oretha Cooper-Dougba (Morris), Nina Cooper, Vera Brown, Bennetta Cooper-Walker, Momoh G. Cooper (Marian), and Ruth Cooper, many grand, great grand, and god children. She is also survived by a sister, Cecelia Dennis-Brown, many nieces, nephews, cousins, host of relatives in Liberia, United States, and Sweden.

Aunt Dolly will be missed. May her soul and all the souls of the faithfully departed rest in eternal peace. Amen.
