Sally Jean Cooper, 62, of Cheshire, passed away peacefully on the morning of Wednesday, March 20, 2019.

Born in Pittsfield on August 16, 1956, a daughter of the late Salvatore A. and Marie Ann Clement Catalano, Sally was a graduate of Taconic High School.

The family member that never missed a birthday; that was Sally. Four brothers, four sisters, dozens of nieces and nephews and Sally remembered every birthday and anniversary.

Finally, on April 27th, 1996, she created her own anniversary when she married her late husband, Richard Cooper.

Together, they enjoyed the outdoors and taking motorcycle rides, until Dick’s passing on August 4, 2014.

Sally was a skilled knitter, loved socializing with friends and took pride in her family.

She came from a large family and looked forward to summer reunions and holiday get-togethers. You could count on Sally to be the first to arrive and the last to depart.

Like many of her siblings, Sally enjoyed collecting things, and hated to throw them away “just in case” … There was always a reason why something should be saved.

While she had no children of her own, she was a God Mother to her niece, Nicole Kellogg, and thought of her other nieces, Katie Smegal and Karli Cassavant, as her own.

Sally is survived by four sisters, Lucille (Edward) Kane of Pittsfield, Christine (Mark) Kellogg of Richmond, Marie (John) Ruel of Richmond, and Sandra (William) Cassavant of Richmond; three brothers, Joseph Catalano of Pittsfield, Arthur (Colleen) Catalano of Richmond, and David (Lyla) Catalano of Pittsfield, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and caregivers/friends Nancy, Tina and Cathy.

She was pre-deceased by her brother, Anthony Catalano and husband, Richard Cooper.
