Denise L. Cooper

Denise L. Cooper was born on July 20, 1964 in Chillicothe, Ohio to Marvin W. Cooper and Janet L (Nelson) Wright and passed away October 23, 2017.

She is survived by brothers Scott Cooper and Michael Colvin and her sister, Dianna Dunkle, who served in the honored roll of sister/best friend. Her neighbors were very much part of her family; Jimmy and Julie and Clay and Ann.  We were always thankful that she had people in her life that watched out for her and loved her.

Denise was a Machine Operator at Triumph Structures for the past five years. Reaching her five year anniversary was a great accomplishment for her as she worked in a very damaging environment that left her depressed and constant conflict with trying hard to do a good job and being harassed because “she was a woman working in a male dominant society”.  Denise’s loyalty to doing a good job drove her to always do her best, beneath the tears and often times humiliation inflicted by various supervisors and coworkers.  Any plea my sister made to better her working conditions were met with retaliatory acts and behaviors. The two people who love her the most, mother Janet and sister Dianna know that she died a successful independent woman that loved to laugh, cook good food and play with her dogs Chevy, Lady Bugg, Miss Wiggles, and Panda; they were her life. 

Denise will be sadly missed by the people who loved her despite of her disease.
