In Memory

Charlotte Cooper (Warner) - Class Of 1953

Charlotte Cooper (Warner)

Charlotte Cooper Warner, 83, of West Linn, Oregon, passed away November 14, 2019 at home. She was born March 19, 1936 in Pasadena, California to Albert and Rose Cooper, their only child. Charlotte graduated from South Pasadena High School in 1953 and attended Pasadena City College and Pomona College. She was a Southern California homemaker, raising four children in Claremont, Palos Verdes Estates, and Simi Valley. She moved north to Frasier Park, California for a while before moving to her final home in Oregon in 2004.

Charlotte was very active in multiple groups in West Linn and surrounding communities including quilting groups and the Wilsonville Al Kader Shriners. She enjoyed season tickets to the Broadway Rose Theatre Company and Lakewood Theatre. Charlotte was an amazing and prolific quilter, genealogist, and collector of many things. She particularly enjoyed spending time with her many friends quilting, dining out or gathering for potlucks, playing cards and other games, attending local theater and movies and traveling both in the states and abroad. She would often visit her four grandchildren in Washington state, supporting their sports and various passions.

Charlotte is survived by her four children:  Douglas Johnson, Neal (Lisa) Johnson, Susan (Timothy) Saffle, and Joanne (Bruce Kooi) Johnson; and four grandchildren. Charlotte was predeceased by her husband, Robert Warner (2007); and two granddaughters. Charlotte was a much-loved and admired independent and talented woman who will be missed by those who knew her. We remember Charlotte not only for her vast collection of remarkable quilts and handiwork, but for her genuine smile, knowledge, organizational skills, friendliness, and love of travel and adventure.
