Yvonne Cooper, 92, passed away peacefully on Christmas Eve in Clearfield, Utah. She lived independently until age 91 when she moved first to Rocky Mountain Care Facility and then to Chancellor Gardens Assisted Living.
She was born on July 1, 1928, the second child of Mathew and Iris Bentley in St George Utah.
She served an LDS mission to the Northern California/Bay Area where she met her future husband, Chester Cooper. They married in the St George Temple in 1953, and settled in Martinez California where they remained for 12 years.
In 1965, Yvonne and Chet along with their 4 children moved to Ashland Oregon. One year later their 5th child, Ron was born. They loved living in Southern Oregon and made many lasting friendships.
In 1982, after Chet died, Yvonne (and Ron) moved to Clearfield, Utah to be closer to some of her children. She loved all the dear friends she made while living in Clearfield, and they loved her in return.
She is survived by her 5 children, Elizabeth Ortega, Cindy Haley, Bill Cooper, Kristine (Jim) Allen, and Ron (Patty) Cooper, along with 6 grandchildren, Tom, Angela, Kelli, Justin, Katie and Nikki.
She is also survived by 4 sisters and 1 brother who treasured her dearly.
A special thank you to Applegate Hospice Care for the loving care they provided to our mom, particularly Dan, Valerie and Tina, and the wonderful staff at Chancellor Gardens.
Until we meet again dearest Yvonne, we miss and love you so much.
Funeral services will be held on Wednesday at 11:00 am at Aarons Mortuary in Clearfield, Utah. A meet and greet with the family will be held from 10:30 to 10:50.
Sister Cooper is the most amazing person. She was always so sweet at church. Such a kind loving woman. Yvonne you will be missed so much. Your perseverance in attending church was astounding as you were in so much pain but you were always there with a smile on your face. What an example you were to all around you.

I will miss Yvonne. Such a wonderful lady. I will never forget her sweet smile. She really lived a good life and remained faithful and a strong testimony of the gospel to the end.
Thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

I had the wonderful privilege of working as a senior companion with Yvonne for about six months last year before she had to go to Rocky Mountain Care. It was a beautiful time reading scriptures and the Ensign and Russell M Nelsons biography (this was all her idea! :-) Ive never done these things with anyone else for my job.). We also ran errands and I helped clean up but those were the best parts were when we were sharing our faith together. I absolutely loved the twinkle in her eye and her great smile. I am so grateful that she doesnt have to endure so much pain anymore. Rest in peace, my sweet friend Yvonne.
