Obituary for Kathryn Cooper (Lynch)

Kathryn  Cooper (Lynch)
It is with great sadness that the family of Kay Cooper announces her passing on April 4, 2018, at her son’s home in Palm Coast, Florida. She was 93.
Born Kathryn Loretta Lynch in Williamstown, PA, she was called “Mickey” as a child and known as “Kay” as an adult. After graduating from high school, Kay studied in Harrisburg and Philadelphia, including at the Wharton Business School. She married Karl W. Cooper in 1951 and had two children, Cynthia and Karl E., while building a life together in Camp Hill (Hampden Township). Kay and Karl were long-time social members of the West Shore Country Club.
Kay developed her flair for fashion and interest in retailing while working for Pomeroy’s department store (later Bon Ton) as fashion coordinator, buyer and merchandise manager. In 1981 she became a partner in the I. Mishkin store in Strawberry Square in Harrisburg. After becoming sole owner, she changed the name to K. Cooper and opened a second store in the Camp Hill Shopping Mall.
Even years after retiring, Kay was often recognized by former customers and told about their memories of a special occasion dress, prom gown or exceptional outfit that came from her store. Kay excelled in producing elaborate fashion shows, complete with custom songs and music through her connections with local musical theater groups.
After Karl Cooper passed away in 2007, Kay moved to Bethany Village in Mechanicsburg. She developed a special relationship with Dr. Gordon D. Myers, who became her devoted companion until his death in 2015. In 2017 Kay decided to move to her son’s home in Palm Coast, Florida.
Kay will be fondly remembered by her children and their families. Her daughter and son-in-law, Cindy Cooper and Tom Davis, live in Noerdlingen, Germany, and their daughter and son-in-law Sarah and Matt Bingen reside in Freising, Germany. Kay’s son and daughter-in-law, Karl and Diana Cooper, live in Palm Coast, Florida. Their children in Pennsylvania are Tami and Christopher Motes with Peyton and Cooper of Parkesburg, and Jennifer and Tom Smith with Thomas of Mechanicsburg. Their granddaughters are Mackenzie in New York City and Hope, with her children Rolando and Lilyana, in Palm Coast, Florida.
Condolences may be sent to Myers-Harner Funeral Home, 1903 Market St., Camp Hill, PA 17011. Interment will be private.
Memorial donations in memory of Kay can be made to the PA Breast Cancer Coalition, 2397 Quentin Road, Suite B, Lebanon, PA 17042, 800.377.8828, info@pabreastcancer.org.
