Nancy Jo Hooper

Nancy Jo Hooper passed March 20, 2017.

She is survived by her husband Chuck

Hooper, daughter Teresa Linger (of Bainbridge Island) and granddaughter Jacky Aurelius

(of Seattle).

Nancy’s life was full of achievements and challenges that touched many who knew her. Always one to offer help when needed or a great meal when hungry – she was there. Her professional career included management at Children’s Hospital in Seattle and numerous medical facilities in Seattle

and here on Vashon.

She was an artist and a floral artisan trained by Japanese floralists early

in her career. Nancy also worked with her husband in the family historic restoration business for many years with projects in Seattle and Tacoma.

Her optimism for life never dimmed.

Nancy was born in Mannheim, Germany, and came to Washington at an early age. She met her husband, Chuck, at Redmond High School. After high school, she attended Seattle University majoring in Psychology. During her years she worked shoulder to shoulder with her husband in various projects at the “challenging” former Beall Greenhouse site. She worked to accommodate many artists in their pursuits on Vashon, always willing to invite them up for a quick bowl of homemade minestrone soup.

Nancy loved to help people. She made many trips to the TacomaRescue Mission and the Millionaires Club with meals she lovingly prepared for the less fortunate.

After 47 years of marriage, she will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Any donations can be made to The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. A separate memorial service to be announced.
