Marja Lynn Cooper

August 2, 1956 — January 30, 2024

Warner Robins

Marja Lynn Cooper, a beloved wife, mother, sister, and friend, passed away at her home in Warner Robins, GA, on January 30, 2024, surrounded by her loving family. She was 67.

Marja was born on August 2, 1956, in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to the late James E. "Jim" Beville, a Lt. Col. in the United States Air Force, and Carol Beville. She was also a loving sister to her older brother Ted Beville and his wife Johanna. Though her older brother Terry Beville preceded her in death, his memory remained close to her heart.

Marja's heart was full of love, and she shared that love with her devoted husband, Lewis E. "Earl" Cooper Jr., her daughter Grace Cooper, her son Corey Nichols, and her cherished granddaughter Hailey Nichols. Marja's family meant the world to her, and she was a source of strength and encouragement for each of them.

She is survived by her husband, children, granddaughter, as well as her brother Ted Beville and his wife Johanna. Marja was also a beloved aunt to her nephew Adam Beville and his wife Anne Beville, their children Charlotte and Dillon, her niece Sarah Neri and her husband Pete Neri, and their son Brooks. Marja's love extended far and wide, touching the hearts of all who knew her.

In addition to her immediate and extended family, Marja is also survived by her stepsister Susan Kennedy, whose presence brought warmth and love into her life. Susan's daughters, Lindsay and Blythe, shared a special bond with Marja, cherishing the moments they spent together and the memories they created. Marja's stepbrother Greg Radcliff, along with his wife Jeannie and their daughter Bethany, were also cherished members of her family circle.

A faithful Christian, Marja found solace and community at Central Baptist Church, where her spirit flourished in fellowship and worship. Her faith was the cornerstone of her life, guiding her with unwavering strength and compassion.

Marja had a special bond with her beloved Maltese dog, Aubie, who brought immeasurable joy and companionship into her life. Their bond was a testament to the depth of Marja's capacity to love and nurture those around her.

Known for her immense heart, compassion, and infectious sense of humor, Marja brightened every room she entered. Her laughter was contagious, and her kindness touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her. She leaves behind a legacy of love, laughter, and unwavering devotion that will continue to inspire and uplift those who carry her memory in their hearts.
