Georgia Ramsey Cooper

 

Georgia Ann Ramsey Cooper, 87, passed away from this life on Sunday, June 25, 2023 at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. Georgia was born June 22, 1936, in Rocky Mount, Virginia, to Robert Coleman Ramsey and Ethel (George) Ramsey. Georgia was a cheerleader at Franklin County High School and graduated in 1954. Georgia met Russell Wayne Cooper in 1955 and they were married in 1956 at Rocky Mount Methodist Church. They resided in Boones Mill, VA, for several years before Wayne was commissioned into the Army. She served our country well as a military spouse while stationed at military bases primarily in the Southeastern US, including time away from her husband while he served one tour of duty in Korea and two tours of duty in Vietnam. Later military assignments brought her to Charlotte, NC; Heidelberg, Germany; Ft. Lee, VA; and finally, Ballwin, MO, where they retired in 1990. Georgia was the life of the party, loved to laugh out loud, and loved her family more than anything else, especially her two grandsons. She was a wonderful, supportive mother to her two sons. Her younger son, Robert, was her loyal caregiver after her husband passed away in 2003.

Georgia is survived by her sons, Russell Wayne Cooper, Jr. and wife Donna, Cypress, TX; and Robert Williamson Cooper, Ballwin, MO; grandsons, Ryan Wayne Cooper and Cameron Robert Cooper, Cypress, TX; brother in-law, JB McCrickard; sister in-law, Virginia (Ginny) Ramsey; as well as many nieces and nephews.

She is predeceased by her parents, Robert Coleman Ramsey and Ethel (George) Ramsey; husband, Russell Wayne Cooper; and siblings, Lee Coleman Ramsey and wife, Flo, CJ (Chigger) Ramsey, Tweet Ramsey, and Bobbie (Ramsey) McCrickard.
