Mary Louise Hafer Cooper left this world on April 11, 2021, in time to celebrate her Mother's birthday. She was born on February 17th,1928, in Wichita Kansas, the daughter of Marion Scott (Bill) Hafer and Annie Lorena (Irene) Hafer. She passed away peacefully at the age of 93 surrounded by her loved ones from a lengthy illness.
Mary attended Twin Falls High school graduating in 1946.
Mary’s employment path was service to people, just to name a few; working as a bookkeeper, a medical assistant for a podiatrist, condo manager, waitress, collecting property taxes for the Ada County (Boise ID) Treasury office. She truly loved working with the public.
She is preceded in death by her parents, four brothers, (Bud, Ted, Jackie Jerry), three sisters (Betty, Virginia, Jane.) Two husbands, Bliss Russell and Walter Cooper.
She is survived by many loved ones. Marjorie Jensen (Buhl ID), Susan (Roger) Bowers (Ely, NV), Sally McQueen (Millcreek, UT), grandchild, Marc (Jennifer) McQueen and great grandchildren, Jentz (Rylan), Jordan, Kamree, Jace and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Mary was known for her love and compassion toward all people and life. She was a social butterfly, feisty, sassy and always would light up a room with her presence. She loved to sing and dance to entertain the people at Cottonwood Creek assisted living where she lived the last three years of her life. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
It was at mom’s wishes to have no service.
The family would like to thank Envision Home Health Care for our mom’s hospice care and much appreciation to Cottonwood Creek Assisted Living. On behalf of our family we wish to thank Larkin Mortuary for their professional services during our difficult time.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void.
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee.
God wanted me now, He set me free!
