(Forsyth County, GA) Molly Cooper, the former Forsyth County District 1 commissioner and vice-chairwoman, died on Wednesday, March 22 of pancreatic cancer.
Cooper lived in the county for 30 years, managing a local business for 16 years. She also took on several leadership roles in the community including president of the Republican Women of Forsyth County, president of the Cumming Civitan Club and the first vice-chairperson of the Forsyth County Republican Party.
She first served on the Board of Commissioners for District 1 for the 2019 through 2022 term, during which she was elected by the BOC as the secretary in 2020 and as vice-chairwoman in 2021 and 2022.
Due to her battle with cancer, she chose not to run for a second term in 2022.
“Our hearts go out to the Cooper family at this difficult time,” said Forsyth County Manager David McKee. “We will forever remember the many contributions former Commissioner Cooper made to the County, including dutifully serving with professionalism, integrity, humility and compassion despite fighting cancer during most of her term as commissioner.”
