Alice Cooper Alvarado

October 13, 1966 - October 13, 2010

Alice Cooper-Alvarado, age 44, of Allen, Texas, passed away October 13, 2010 in Dallas, Texas. There’s something to be said for the passing of someone so dearly loved… God gave her to us on October 13th, her birthday, and she died way too soon on the same day. Alice is the daughter of Raymond and Luella Cooper. She married Michael A. Alvarado on June 22, 1991 in Kansas City, Kansas. She is survived by her husband, Michael A. Alvarado of Allen, Texas; her mother, Luella Cooper, K.C., KS, and her brother, Lynn Lutjen, Sedalia, MO, sisters, Brenda Wing, K.C., KS, Doretta Davis, Lee’s Summit, MO, Lynda Cooper, K.C., KS, and many nieces and nephews that loved her so much: James, Jeanne, Jeron, Krissy, Dusty, Derek, Luke, Anthony, Marcus and Stella; mother-in-law, Esther Alvarado, brother-in-law, John Alvarado, and sister-in-law, Carmen Ortiz of K.C., KS. She was preceded in death by her father, Raymond C. Cooper in 2002 and infant brother, Eddie Ray Cooper. All friends and family are welcome to attend a memorial service which will be held Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 10:00am at Antioch Church, 5201 Antioch Road, Overland Park, KS. A memorial service was also held for her friends in Texas at St. Jude’s on October 15th. A private family service will be officiated by Father Dennis on October 23rd at the home of Alice’s mom. Alice was born with a loving heart. She gave freely of herself and was always there to lend a hand when friends or the family needed her. She was an awesome cook. Her lifelong friends were her doggies… Abby, Hailey and kitty cat, Hazel. Shorty and Pepper, who are in heaven, are smiling now that they have her back… It is difficult to part with someone so dearly loved. We thank God for everyday he gave her to us and know that he took her because he needed a special angel. Contributions can be made to the Melanoma Research Foundation or

I Love You, Alice! This poem my sister sent to me in the mail after I moved away from home. Alice told me she made an "A" on this poem. I carried this poem in my wallet for years and showed it to all my friends. Through the years the paper it was written on had frayed edges because I took it out and read it when I wanted to think of my sister and the fun years we had together growing up. It wasn't until the last several years that Alice admitted to me that when she was in grade school she copied that poem out of a library book. That was funny! Here is Alice's poem: I cannot go to school today, said little Peggy Ann McKaie. I have the measles and the mumps, a rash a gash of purple bumps. My throat is wet, my tongue is dry, I think I am going blind in my right eye. What? What's that you say? Today is Saturday, good-bye, I am going out to play. I will always remember what Alice and Lynda, her sister, did for my boys; her nephews, Derek and Dusty. Even though I always bought them Christmas, she always wanted to make sure that they had a really nice Christmas. Every year while they were growing up her and Dad would deliver extra gifts to my house after midnight from Santa Claus. It wasn't until the boys grew up that they found out what a nice gesture Alice and Lynda did for them. She was always very close to Dusty and Derek and they loved her for it. I Love you, Alice and you were a great sister!

May God wrap his arms around you at this difficult time Fondly Donna donna j slaughter, October 22, 2010 I remember the Christmas Eve that Mike proposed to Alice. I was priveledged enough to be there for it. He gave her a stuffed animal. Little did she know it had a ring inside the little bag it was holding. The entire family knew about it and had to act like the stuffed animal was nice and that was all she was took her awhile to find the ring but when she did it was a great surprise to her. What a night! Dave, the kids, and I will keep Mike and all of Alice's family in our prayers. Remeber that Alice is in heaven now and those left behind are the ones that need to be happy for her. We will miss her dearly. God will give you the power that you need. Laura Alvarado, October 20, 2010
