Mary Copper

June 26, 1944 — March 27, 2017

Mary E. Blake Copper, “Libby”, 72 departed this life and transitioned to her heavenly home on Monday March 27, 2017, at Talbot County Hospice, Easton, MD. “Libby” was born on June 26, 1944, Easton, Maryland to the late Kenneth Dobson, and Mary E. Moore Blake.

Libby was educated in Talbot County at Moton School. Libby expanded her education in the field of patient care in private homes, and was also a laborer for ConAgra Poultry in Hurlock where she retired and continued patient care. Libby was known for her cooking, and arranging family gatherings for holidays.  She always had to prepare her delicious macaroni and cheese and corn pudding.  She always had something cooked. On January 1, 1964, she joined in holy matrimony and married the late Charles E. Copper, Sr. “Pero”, and from that union five children were born. Libby was a dedicated mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.  Anyone who needed a meal and a place to rest their head, Libby would find a place in her home for you to rest and have no care.  She always enjoyed her crossword puzzles and reading the Star and the Enquire. Libby was also a dedicated member of the Easton American Legion, Blake Blackston Post #77 Ladies Auxiliary. Libby loved life and enjoyed it to the fullest, but there was no love that compared to the love she had for her family.
