Beloved mother of Roberta Stuart Cooper and Barbara Elizabeth (Brents) Cooper, Harriett Cooper worked for the U.S. Army in a civilian capacity during World War II, where she met and married her second husband, Robert Stuart Cooper, at Camp Blanding, Florida, in 1944.
She spent the next 30 years in Washington, D.C., until
her husband retired from the Federal Government and moved to Springfield, Missouri in 1975.
Harriett Cooper was deeply involved in politics, and invested much time in various campaigns, mostly on state and county levels, but her greatest accomplishment was working in an Administrative capacity on the Nixon campaign in 1968, and after Nixon's victory, she worked at the Executive Office Building next to the White House.
My mother was a highly intelligent, extremely funny lady;
generous, and with a deep concern for social justice, and
the rights of the "little guy."
Even at the end, although wracked with metastatic cancer,
Harriett Cooper never lost her irrepressible sense of humour, and slipped into Eternity peacefully, the morning of December 27, 2001, with the same courage that saw her through the Great Depression and a World War, buoyed up by her deep and faithful religious conviction.
God bless and keep you. Mother; I'll miss you for a lifetime...
Your devoted daughter, Stuart.
