Nancy (Kernan) Cooper, 76, passed away peacefully on December 25, 2021. Predeceased by husband Henry Cooper and parents George and Lillian (Bashand) Kernan.
Nancy touched everyone she met whether with her infectious laugh or giving nature. She could light up any room with her passion for life and could make a friend out of anyone. Family and friends were the most important thing in Nancy’s life. She loved to spend her summers with her family at the family camp property in the Adirondacks. You could find her watching the boats on the water, laughing with her family around the fire requesting ice cream.
She is survived by her daughter Lisa Cooper-Smith of East Hampton, son Edward and Julie Cooper of East Hampton, granddaughters Caitlin Smith of South Windham, Kristina Smith and Fiancé James Valenti of Meriden, brother Richard Kernan of Albany, NY and sister Dorothy Kernan of The Villages, FL.
Burial will be private in the spring at Pine Grove Cemetery, Charlton, NY. In lieu of flowers Nancy wanted donations to be made to: Vasculitis Foundation (nonprofit) P.O. Box 28660, Kansas City, MO 64188 www.vasculitisfoundation.org.
