Cooper Chapel

History

The Holy Angels Cooper Chapel has been a part of the fabric of the Oakland community for generations. Conveniently located on Fruitvale Avenue, Holy Angels Funeral and Cremation Center/Cooper Chapel is among the finest and largest funeral homes in our community. In 1912, the first funeral service was held at the Clarence N. Cooper Mortuary. As the family business grew, the current building on Fruitvale Avenue was developed in 1918. Clarence Coopers was active in caring for the surrounding communities for 17 years.

Family members of Clarence Cooper and part owner and long time Director John McCormick continued to support the community until 2007, when the Diocese of Oakland Catholic Cemeteries assumed responsibility for the mortuary. With a deep-rooted history, the Oakland Dioceses’ are committed to carrying on the long established and proud tradition of the Cooper Family.
