Obituary for Edith C Cooper

Edith Cable Cooper passed away September 22, 2018 in Lebanon, Kentucky, twenty-nine days shy of her 100th birthday. She was born October 21, 1918 in Campton, KY, the daughter of Rosa May Smyth Cable and Casper Cable. She grew up in Wolfe County KY and graduated from Alvan Drew High School in Pine Ridge, KY.

She taught Sunday School and played piano for church services for many years. After moving to Georgetown in 1995, she attended Faith Baptist Church where she made many lasting friends.

Edith was a woman of many talents, but, the one most appreciated by her family was her cooking. She was a marvelous Southern cook and could prepare Holiday dinners for 20 people without getting the kitchen dirty. Late in life she discovered her talent as an artist. Her specialty was still life paintings and she made her own Christmas Cards until her eyesight failed. She was an expert at crossword puzzles and could beat anybody at Scrabble.
Edith spent the past 2 1/2 years at the Village of Lebanon, Lebanon KY where she received excellent care and made many new friends among residents and staff.
