In Memoraim Sandra R. Cooer, 84 December 19, 1937 – October 13, 2022
In Memoraim

Sandra R. Denicore, 84

December 19, 1937 – October 13, 2022

ONEONTA – On December 19, 1937, Sandra “Sandy” Rae Cooper arrived in Elmira, New York – full of life and purpose – as the middle child of her loving parents, Beatrice and Merle Cooper.

After giving everything she had to give, Sandy left this world 84 years later on October 13, 2022, as the spouse of one, the mother of six, the grandmother of twenty, the sister of two, and a friend to hundreds.

Like everyone, Sandy arrived in this world with nothing, and she left with nothing.  What Sandy left behind on this planet, however, is immeasurable.

Sandy was a life-long New Yorker.  She was born in Elmira, raised in Dannemora, and eventually settled in Oneonta where she raised a family with her husband of 62 years.
