Katheryn L. “Katie” Cooper, 30, of Norwalk, Ohio, lost her battle with addiction on June 15, 2022. Katie had fought the disease valiantly for a long time and was an advocate for others facing the same struggles.

Her favorite place of work was Der Braumeister restaurant in Cleveland.
Katie was high-spirited, fun loving, and adventurous, with a host of friends. She was a loving daughter, sister and aunt who was intelligent, funny, and beautiful.
