Cohn, Hope Janel

Hope Janel Cohn, born Oct. 11, 1958, in Kansas City, Missouri, died peacefully Jan. 23, 2018, with loved ones by her side after a courageous battle with lung cancer.

Hope’s strength and courage inspired everyone around her. She found the most joy in being around children, working at a pediatrician’s office and spending 15 years as a nanny. She left a lasting imprint on every family who knew her and every child she cared for. And her greatest happiness in life was in her role as a mother and grandmother. 

She was preceded in death by her parents Eddie and Corrine Gerson. She is survived by her children Louis and Mika Cohn, Andrew Cohn and Katie Cohn; and two grandchildren. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to Children’s Mercy Hospital or The Austie Strong Foundation.
