Harriet Carlisle Cooper
Harriet Carlisle Cooper, 74, of Largo, The Villages, FL died on July 3, 2018 after a battle with cancer. She was the beloved sister of Sarah Crane, Christopher Cooper, John Cooper (deceased), sisters-in-law Gina Cooper and Patricia Cooper; the fabulous aunt of Robert Crane, Allison Crane, Patrick Crane, Natasha Cooper Rhodes and Samuel Cooper.
After being born in St. Louis and growing up in Baltimore and graduating from Towson High School, Class of 1962, and The University of Maryland, Class of 1966, she settled in New York City. She was a flight attendant for 43 years, 25 of them with Pan Am and 18 with Delta. During 30 years of that time she traveled the world with her sweetheart, Dick, until his premature death.
After a liver transplant and retirement she moved to The Villages, FL to take care of her parents. Upon their deaths she bought a little house that she dearly loved. She came to be known by her neighbors, who all became her friends, as the kindest, most thoughtful of women. She was beautiful and funny, and generous – a lady in the truest sense of the word. She will be sorely missed by everyone whose life she touched.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date.
