Born in Morristown, NJ, to parents Patrick and Mary (Bolger) Cooper, Elizabeth was known to all as Una. She was raised in Gladstone, N.J and later lived in Bristol, CT, Asbury Park, NJ, and Colrain, MA, before returning to Morris County to be closer to family. She was a woman of faith and was a parishioner of St. Brigid Church in her younger years.
