November 18, 1942 - October 21, 2019
Leslie Cooper, nee Gauger, 76, of Long Grove, Illinois, was born on November 18th of 1942 to Virginia "Ginny""Nina & Charles "Chas""Hoppy" Gauger. She spent the first part of her life married to Ed "Elvis" Cooper in Illinois, raising their 3 kids. She went on to have a decades long relationship with her best friend Larry Barker, and many friends in Singer Island, Florida where she resided her last 8 years before moving back to Illinois for the past 2 1/2. She would be 77 this November, but in her first 73 years, before the evil disease of Alzheimers & Dementia would steal her mentally from us, she lived more than most people would in 100 years. She loved her cabana, walking on the beach, collecting sea glass, enjoying Golden margaritas with her friends at local hotels, and the view of the ocean from her 21st floor balcony. We are sure she is doing the same now:) She was a Loving mother of Dan (Debbie) Cooper, Holly (Dave) Belconis and the late Scott Cooper; devoted grandmother of Nina, Jake, & Dylan; cherished sister of Kathie (Al) Walker, and Nephew Christopher Koch. Please join us for a Celebration of her Life on Sunday November 3rd at Kemper Lakes Country Country Club in Kildeer, Illinois from 12-4! Casual & Warm atmosphere - In Lieu of flowers, your donations to The Alzheimers Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
