Helen May Seeley Cooley, 70 died November 16, 2013 at Logan Regional Hospital. She was born January 30, 1943 at her Grandmother's home in Albion, ID, to James Walter and Florence Dolan Seeley. After her birth, she and her mother moved to Monterey, CA for a year, to be with her dad who was serving in the Army. She lived in Boise ID until the age of 10, and then her family moved to a farm near Parma, Idaho. She attended schools in Boise and Fruitland ID, graduating from Fruitland High School. After graduating High School, she moved to Payette, ID, where she worked as a Telephone Operator. She then moved to Salt Lake City, UT to attend LDS Business College and worked at the University Club in Salt Lake City. While living in Salt Lake she was introduced to Richard Grant Cooley, by a close friend. They were married in the Logan LDS Temple on September 30, 1965. Together they made their home in Newton, UT and were blessed with three children Pamela, Jeremy and Justin. She worked for the Herald Printing CO. in Logan UT until her first child was born. Richard and Helen owned and operated Cooley's Country Store in Newton for a number of years. When Richard's failing health forced them to sell the store, Helen was trained to do home dialysis for Richard. She also started working as Independent Contract Carrier, delivering the Herald Journal to subscribers in Benson, Newton and Clarkston for 15 years. Shortly after beginning the paper route, she began work at the United Suffolk Sheep Association in Newton, UT, where she worked until she retired. She was a member of the LDS church, serving in various callings, including young women's, primary and was a teacher in the Relief Society. Mother was a beautiful seamstress making many clothes for us when we were young. She is also known for her beautiful cross stitch pictures and many were given as gifts. Mom was the care taker of the family and took care of our Dad during his illness. She also took care of her parents and a brother until their deaths. She taught us that the most important thing in life is family. Thank you Mom for all you have done for us, we love you and are happy that you and dad are finally together again.
She is survived by her three Children, Pamela (Kenneth) Anderson, Kennesaw, GA, Jeremy Richard Cooley, Rexburg, ID, and Justin W Cooley, Newton, UT. Three grandsons, Anthony Anderson, Tucson, AZ, Nicholas and Cody Anderson of Kennesaw, GA. One Brother Ralph (Vicki) Seeley, Grand View, ID, and two Sister-in Laws, Helen Helstern, Logan, UT and MaryAnn (Kelly) Booth of Moapa, NV.
