A graveside service for Catherine M. Cooper of Southeast Portland, a retired elementary school teacher, will be held at 2:30 p.m. Monday in Lincoln Memorial Park.

Miss Cooper died of a stroke Wednesday in a Portland care center at the age of 86.

She was born Jan. 10, 1904, in Auburn, Neb., but moved to Emporia, Kan., as a child. Miss Cooper taught in Kansas for 20 years, and spent a year teaching the children of U.S. military officers in Germany during the war years.

After moving to Seattle in the mid-1940s, she taught in that city for 27 years until her retirement in 1971. She co-authored a series of beginning Spanish textbooks for the Seattle School District following her retirement. She moved to Portland in 1986.

Miss Cooper is survived by her sisters, Lois E. Garwood of Milwaukie and Helen G. Cooper of El Toro, Calif.; and a brother, Dwight H. Cooper of Lakeside, Calif.

The family suggests remembrances be contributions to a favorite charity.
