Alice Regina Cooper transitioned on January 20, 2024, at the age of seventy-one. She was born July 23, 1952, in Washington, DC, to Harold T. and Ruth T. (Hall) Crowe.
Alice graduated from the University of the District of Columbia. Following graduation, she obtained employment at C&P Telephone Company, later renamed Verizon where she served for over 30 years. Alice excelled in her career and embraced her leadership positions, serving at the White House, the Library of Congress, and the House and Senate office buildings.
Alice is survived by her loving husband, Walter Cooper, daughter Monique Haywood, son Andre L. Haywood, Jr., son and daughter-in-love Craig and Monica Cooper, daughter Kim Yata, fourteen grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and a host of family, friends, church family, and co-workers; from the sandbox until the end, her lifelong friend Mary Arnold and her sons Teyon and Leyon.
Those who knew her have fond memories of the laughter they shared, the lessons she taught us, and her wonderful personality. With a huge heart and a giving spirit, it was very easy for her to love, help those in need, and care for those she called family. Alice’s family was especially important to her, and it will be very easy to find stories of how she touched someone’s life or showed them how much she cared. She was a rare gift, a devoted wife, mother, mentor, and friend. She is not only missed but tremendously loved. Alice was a devout Christian and a faithful member of Destiny International Christian Center.
