Laura Roberts Cooper

October 31, 1933 - January 20, 2018

Laura Roberts Cooper, 84, passed away Saturday, January 20, 2018 at Pardee Hospital after a period of declining health. Laura was a native of Hendersonville and daughter of the late William Wiley and Fannie Sue Dermid Roberts and attended Hendersonville High School. She was a consummate mother and grandmother always putting others before herself. While she struggled over the last several years with a terminal illness, she lovingly dedicated her life to taking care of her husband of 68 years who preceded her in death 18 days earlier.

In 1967, Laura along with her husband founded Cooper Construction Company, a 50-year-old third generation general contracting firm. She was a member of First Baptist Church in Hendersonville for over 40 years.

She is survived by her sons, Tom and wife Marie, Jeff and wife Lynn and Mike and wife Pam Cooper, all of Hendersonville; grandchildren, Brad, Zach, Lane and Greg Cooper, Kelly Ford, Krystal Horan, Marci Raniszeski and Kerra Johnson; sister, Betty Johnson; 12 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 at 2pm with Rev. Steve Scoggins officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Four Seasons Compassion for Life, 571 S. Allen Rd., Flat Rock, NC 28731.
