Ms. Rena Cooper

May 20, 1963 ~ September 22, 2020 (age 57)


“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

Ms. Rena Cooper made her advent into this world on May 20, 1963, by the parentage of the late Edgar Cooper, Sr., and the late Arzella Taylor Cooper. Rena, as she was affectionately called by all who knew her, was a quiet, mild-mannered, and soft-spoken individual. She had a sweet, humble spirit and a heart of gold. Her parents, “Poke Tee and Arzella”, spoiled her unconditionally from their first sight of her and throughout life. Undoubtedly, early Tuesday morning, September 22, 2020, Rena finished her course here on Earth called life, with an unexpected departure.

Rena attended the public schools of Hancock County, beginning at Southwest Elementary and matriculating to Hancock Central High. Rena also attended church with her family during her childhood throughout the Linton and Deepstep communities and the other areas of Baldwin, Hancock, Washington, and surrounding counties. During her leisure, Rena enjoyed watching her favorite sitcoms, Living Single, Martin, Sista Sista, and many, many more. Rena will always be remembered for her prideful taste for clothes, music, sweets, and her signature jewelry.

Rena leaves to cherish her beautiful smile and fond memories: her sisters/caregivers, Mrs. Aretha Cooper Hill (Johnny), Jeanette Reeves (Howard), and Eula R. Edwards (Byron); brothers, Edgar Cooper, Jr. (Sarah), Bobby Cooper, Daniel Cooper (Annie), Samuel Cooper, Alfred Reeves (Barbara), and Edward Reeves (Vickie). Rena has several nieces and nephews who adored her, and she adored them as precious jewels. Rena has left a lasting impression on the many lives that she touched, including a special and dedicated friend, Gloria Butts-Cooper; caring cousins, Nellie Marie Hood and Jean Edwards; and a host of other family and friends.
