Lisa Jo Cooper, age 51 and lifelong resident of
Bartlesville, Oklahoma, passed away in Jane Phillips
Medical Center on Tuesday, January 26, 2016,
surrounded by her loving family.
BARTLESVILLE, WASHINGTON CO, OK
Lisa was born on February 17, 1964 in Bartlesville.
She was the daughter of Bennie Lee Cooper and
Barbara (Herrington) Cooper Lane. In her early
years, Lisa attended Bell Ringers School and was a
graduate of the special education program of
Bartlesville in 1986. She was active in Girl Scouts.
She later attended activities at The Boys and Girls
Club. At the age of 18, Lisa became a resident of
ARC, one of the first five special needs group homes
in Oklahoma that was opened in November of 1982 here
in Bartlesville. Lisa loved participating in the
Special Olympics here in Bartlesville and qualified
to compete at the state level most years. She was
quite a bowler and softball thrower. She accumulated
a rather large collection of medals and ribbons and
was more than happy to display them to anyone who
Lisa enjoyed working each day wherever she was
needed at Employability. Her listening skills and
ability to follow instructions made every task a
joy. She also loved participating in art projects.
She was quite the "artist" and always took great
pride in her work. She loved to go…anywhere,
anytime. Cruises, local Broadway shows, and trips to
Branson were favorites. She loved to attend church
and Sunday school. She loved to eat, always
inquiring what was on the menu for the next meal and
the one after that. No one in the family loved going
to Sunset and Grand Lakes more than Lisa. Fireworks
shows brought unending screams and shouts of joy
from Lisa with every boom. She loved to sing loudly
in her own key but knew the words. She loved to
dance every dance.
Lisa enjoyed life, never met a stranger, and loved
everybody. All who knew her loved her.
Her passing leaves a void that no one will be able
