I attended JCJC for two years. During my second year I met and married my soulmate, Helm Cooper from Memphis. We were married in February, 1963 at First Baptist Church in Conway, AR. We finished the school year then moved to Memphis for three years. We followed Helm's job as a Kraft Foods Sales Rep. to Dallas then Coffeyville, Kansas. I was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom.
In 1970 we moved to Conway so Helm could return to school. He graduated from Hendrix College, did his graduate work at UCA and began a 35-year career teaching Biology and coaching three sports.
Being blessed to be a stay-at-home mom enabled us to be foster parents for ten years (1974-1984). We served over 100 children specializing in babies (newborns) given up for adoption. The average stay was three months. We were also an Emergency Placement Home. Since 1987 (24 years) we have spent our summers in Panama City Beach, FL. Helm works weekends at Half Hitch Tackle.
Two of our children married Catholics, so in 1990, Helm and I went through RCIA and became Catholic.
Buster and his wife, Valerie, have four children--Cassie (23), Holly (22), Savannah (18) and Drake (16). He is a captain with Conway Fire and Rescue in the training department. He was the first Conway firefighter to receive the Fire Department's highest honor--the Medal of Valor-- for risking his own life in an unassisted swift water rescue. He also owns Bust-A-Duck Guide Service and all four of his children are duck hunters.
Our daughter, Kelly, is married to Woody Simmons; and they have two daughters -- Jordan (18) and Carson (8). They live in Little Rock. Kelly has her Master's in Special Education and is a Curriculum Compliance Coordinator with the Little Rock School District. Woody's family owns Bray Sheet Metal and Roofing Co.
Hugh and wife, Nicole (she is an elementary special education resource teacher) have a daughter, Cecilia (5) and son, Anderson (3). They live in Little Rock, but Hugh is a Lieutenant and EMT-2 with Conway Fire and Rescue.
Ronnie is a self employed remodeler in Conway. He has a daughter, Emma (7)
My husband, Helm, retired in 2007 from Conway Public Schools and volunteers in coaching football at Conway Christian High School. Our grandkids attend Catholic schools and are active in several sports so that keeps us busy and on the road. My family is my life and my legacy!
