The ESR community is saddened to share the news of Wilmer Cooper's passing. Wilmer was one of the founders of ESR and the first dean of the seminary. He was 88 years old at the time of his death. His wife, Emily, (creator of the beautiful Peace quilt in the ESR Gathering area) died in 2005. Wil and Emily moved to Friends Fellowship Community in 1994. They had 4 children, Suzanne, Cathy, and Barbara, who live in Massachusetts, and Scott, who lives in Florida.
