Death of Loretta Cooley

We were saddened to learn of the death of Loretta Young Cooley, wife of Billy Cooley who is the assistant pastor of the GCI church in Meridian, Mississippi. Loretta died on January 14 from a heart attack that occurred shortly after having been in an automobile accident. Her passion for spreading the gospel of Jesus will be missed by the members of her congregation and by the GCI district church planting network of which she was an active part.

Originally from Alabama, Loretta married Billy Ray Cooley of Meridian, Mississippi about 7 years ago. Together they served faithfully in ministry at Christ Community Fellowship Church, the GCI congregation in Meridian. A few years ago, Billy was ordained an elder and soon began serving as the assistant pastor in the Meridian congregation. Billy and Loretta’s love for youth and service in the community birthed in them a desire and passion for church planting. They were one of two couples within their GCI church district who felt called to church planting.
