Cooper, Barbara
Died peacefully in her sleep at home in Los Angeles at 82. At her side was her life partner and devoted caregiver, her husband Jack.
Born Barbara Rae Kraus in New York, N.Y. to Charlotte and Ralph Kraus. Married to Jackie Cooper April 29, 1954. Moved to Beverly Hills, Calif. the following year, as her husband's career transitioned from the Broadway stage to television, and sent for her family soon thereafter. All remained Californians the rest of their lives.
Survived by her husband of fifty-five years; their son Russell (b. 1956) of New York City; their daughter Cristina (b. 1959) of Woodland Hills, Calif.; her stepson, John Cooper, of Marin County, Calif.; and many loyal, caring friends. Predeceased by her parents, her daughter Julie (1957-1997), and her loving sister Joanne P. Kraus (1930-2000).
Private interment at Westwood Memorial Park. An intimate celebration of her life will be held shortly.
If you wish to commemorate Barbara's passing, please do not send flowers. Flowers die. Instead, consider a donation to the cancer charity of your choice, to further the cause of life.
Barbara Kraus Cooper struggled against cancer for twenty years, always with courage and dignity. She lived out her last years--and faced the end of her life--in the same way.
