PLAINVILLE – Patricia A. Cooper, 76, of Plainville passed away on Monday, October 14, 2019 at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro. She was the beloved wife of Harry “Max” Cooper.
Born October 28, 1942 in Providence, RI, she was a daughter of the late William F. and Mildred A. (Sykes) Dooley.
Pat grew up in Providence and lived several years in Frankfurt, Germany, before moving to Plainville in 1964.

Pat was primarily a homemaker and raised her five children in Plainville and North Attleboro. She began working at Cooper’s Appliance in Plainville in 1974 . In 1985 she and Max became co-owners of Cooper’s Appliance and she worked as a secretary and bookkeeper before retiring in 2006.
Pat was well-known in Plainville and will be missed by her friends at Sunset Acres. She played in a Bunco group for many years and loved interior decorating. She was constantly re-doing her house by moving furniture or painting and changing the curtains.
