Vivian Folk Cooper, affectionately known as “Peaches” by her family and friends, was born on October 16, 1959 in Brooklyn, New York. Our Heavenly Father called her home to rest on Sunday, May 10, 2020.
At an early age, she was baptized at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Brooklyn, New York. She began her education in the public schools of Kings County, New York.
In 1978, Vivian and her family relocated to Hampton, South Carolina. Upon moving, she completed her education and graduated from Wade Hampton High School, Varnville, South Carolina. In 1984, she entered the United States Navy which afforded her the opportunity to travel around the world.
In 1985, Vivian married James Cooper.
She became a member of Samaritan Missionary Baptist Church, Varnville, South Carolina where she served faithfully as a member of the Usher Board and Hospitality Committee until her death. Her Samaritan Church Family looked forward each Sunday mornings to her inspirational readings.
Vivian was a social butterfly, the life of any gathering or event, with the personality of an angel. No one was a stranger to her. She loved playing with children and was loved by all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents, Deacon John and Edith Moore and Deacon Edgar and Jarean Folk; and one brother, Calvin (Patricia) Thomas of Florence, S.C.
Loving memories will be cherished by: her parents, Deacon Harry and Evangelist Mary Folk; six brothers: Hugh (Marie) Folk of Upper Marlboro, Md., Gregory (Luthmae) Folk of Hampton, S.C., Richard Falk of Savannah, Ga., Dennis Jackson of Middleton, N.Y., Frankie Hay of Lexington, S.C., and Benjamin Williams of Jacksonville, Fla.; four sisters: Linda Bryson of Hampton, S.C., Denise Jackson-Hines of Middleton, N.Y., Alice Buckner of Tampa, Fla., and Laurissa (Myron) Dobson of Grovetown, Ga.; a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and sympathizing friends; two special aunts: Carrie Patterson and Jarean “Jackie” Folk; five special cousins: Pamela Folk Bowman, Caroline Brown, Earlin Moore, Jr., Edna Folks, and Herbert Moore, Jr.; and a nephew whom she reared like a son, Antwane Folk.
