Judith Elaine Mercer Cooper
"Judy"

 Judith Elaine “Judy” Mercer Cooper, 75, beloved wife of Daniel Evander “Dickie” Cooper, with a gentle smile on her face departed this life and went home to be with the Lord and her waiting loved ones on Sunday evening, September 24, 2017 at her residence. 
Mrs. Cooper was born the daughter of Rev. Thomas Durant Mercer and Lois Jeanette Blakely Mercer on June 23, 1942 in Georgetown. She was a graduate of Williamsburg High School.  She attended Holmes Bible College, Coastal Carolina Universary, University of South Carolina, and Williamsburg Technical College fulfilling her Early Childhood Education required courses and continuing education courses.  She received her degree from the University of South Carolina and taught in the Williamsburg County School System for over 30 years.
She began her spiritual journey in the Andrews First Pentecostal Holiness Church.  After marrying Dickie, she joined the Trio United Methodist Church and faithfully served over the years.  As a mother and wife, Judy found her greatest joy as she loved cooking, cleaning house, and doing laundry.  She enjoyed painting, restoring furniture, and reading.  However, she was always happiest when her home was full of family and friends with lots of food and laughter.

McCants; five grandchildren, Evan (Brittany) Cooper, Nicholas (Whitney Powell) Cooper, Taylor (Ken Morris) Cooper, Lee McCants, and Seth (Wendy) McCants; 10 great-grandchildren, Danielle, Kristen, Jackson, Emalyn, Evy, Paxstyn, Preslee Ann, Palmer Kate, Hadley, and Emmette.  She also leaves behind:  a brother, Blakely (Clarice) Mercer; a sister, Wanda (Carl) Ray; and a number of nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by:  her parents; a brother-in-law, and a sister, Tommie Ann (Lloyd) Tisdale. 
A Home Going Celebration will be 6 PM, Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at Andrews First Pentecostal Holiness Church.  Officiating will be Rev. Gary Adams assisted by Nancy Adams, Rev Dean Baber, Rev. Wayne Cox, and Rev. John Smiley.
