Marion Cooper

Marion originally trained as a nurse. After marriage and having her three children, she joined the staff of the local comprehensive school in the science department. For many years she and her husband were very active members of the Salvation Army. For the last 35 years she played a leading role in the life of the parish church, at different times organising Bible studies, prayer groups, Sunday School and Christian outreach into the parish, as well as editing and circulating the church magazine.
When physical handicap gradually reduced her active role, she willingly responded to help with John Williams’ request to provide Bible Study Notes on Mark's Gospel with questions to accompany the EasyEnglish Level A Bible. She had a really exceptional knowledge of the Bible, following study courses and extensive reading.
In 2009, Marion read Psalm 23 as one of a set of EasyEnglish Audio files, which could be heard and read at the same time. She also helped with the checking of The EasyEnglish Bible Dictionary during 2015.
