Rebekah Ellen (Earp) Willis Cooley was my much loved grandmother. She was born in Newburg, Phelps County, Missouri on April 24, 1922. She was the daughter of Mary Florence Earp; the granddaughter of Philip H. & Rebekah Ellen (Stogsdill) Earp.
On November 27, 1937 she married Oscar Lee Willis. To that union two daughters were born. Oscar and Ellen divorced in October of 1952. She later married Wilbur Earl Cooley in October of 1955.
Gran was preceded in death by her mother, one daughter and one grandson. She left behind eight living grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. Gran was an extraordinary woman.
