Anne M. (Radke) Cooper

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, June 22, 2013, at 11 a.m. at St. Richard Catholic Church, 1503 Grand Ave., with her cousin Rev. William A. Noe, S.J. officiating.    Relatives and friends may meet with the family Friday at the funeral home from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. and Saturday at the church from 10 a.m. until time of Mass at 11 a.m.  Private interment will be held at Holy Cross Cemetery at a later date.
