COOPER, Judith Ann (nee Cochran)

76, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at Erie Shores Healthcare. Dear mother of Jennifer Kristin Darowski-Melnick and her husband Josh. Loving “Grandma Judy” to Dominique and Zack. Predeceased by her parents James and Fern Irene Cochran. Judy was born and raised in Leamington and was proud to call Leamington her home. As a teen her summers were spent as a tour guide at HJ Heinz Company where her father and mother worked for many years. Judy graduated from the University of Windsor and became a secondary school Home Economics teacher at Kingsville District High School until she retired to raise her only daughter Jenny. Judy’s true calling came when she became a grandmother to Dominique and Zack whom she deeply loved with her whole heart. Her fondest memories were the countless hours she spent watching their sports events, vacationing with them every summer at Geneva Park and the many summer days spent swimming with them in her pool. Judy was very physically active and exercise was her passion in life. She made many life-long friendships and will be greatly missed especially by her Sherk Complex close friends and Saturday coffee group.
