Alice Bell, 59, passed peacefully in her home in Springtown on Oct, 22. Alice had a love for the outdoors and will always be remembered for her kind nature. She preferred the simpler comforts of close friends and family; but was always willing to help any in need. She had only one question that she inexplicably asked everyone she met, “Can I get you anything?” She was loved by all who knew her; and will be dearly missed. She was survived by her husband Mike and her two daughters; Laura and her husband Marty Oliver, and Amanda Bell. She left behind four grandchildren; Grant and Kathleen Oliver and Miranda Garcia and Jack Dunnam, 2 sisters and a brother and nieces and nephews. Her memorial service will be held at The Deer Cove in Azle at 1 PM on Sunday, November 8. Pot luck lunch will be served.

"Drinks with Linda"

Celebrating the Life of Linda Coopman was a humbling experience. Her loved ones showed in large numbers to pay their last respects, which included family members, bar patrons, and the Arlington Police Department. On Friday, they all gathered at her bar, where her flowers, and a pool table filled with her trophies from a lifetime of accomplishment. Her pool stick and team shirt where retired and encased in a shadow box on display at the bar. All who attended received a ticket at the door,and later on exchanged that ticket for a free beer, so that as a final sendoff all would toast and "have a drink on Linda".


Linda Coopman, 65, of Arlington, Texas died Sunday July 6, 2014. Linda was born in Milwaukee, WI on February 22, 1949. As an adult, she moved to Texas and in 2002 opened Stage 1 Bar & Billiards. As owner, Linda made every effort to make people feel welcome. As a result, she has a very extended family of customers who long ago became her friends. To them, she will always be a “Babe”.

Linda is survived by her three children: Dax Coopman and Del Coopman, of Fort Worth; and Angela Vaughan, of Loveland, CO. She is also survived by three grandchildren: Rachel, Anna, and Raymond Vaughan, of Loveland, CO.
