An old time resident of Grimsby, Mrs. Deborah Cook, died in Saskatoon Hospital, Saskatchewan, on July 11, 1952 at the age of 87 years.
The body was brought to Nokomis and funeral services held there on Tuesday.
Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Cook were residents some years ago of Grimsby and will be remembered by many friends.
The late Mrs. Cook was born at Malokaf, Ontario, and was married there to the late Mr. Ben Cook, who died 19 years ago. After Mr. Cook's death in 1936, Mrs. Cook moved to Nokomis, Sask., living with her brother, R.C. Johnston. Later she and her sister, Miss E.A. Johnston resided in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, having moved from Nokomis in 1945.
Surviving are one sister, Miss E.A. Johnston, Saskatoon, and one brother, W.H. Johnston of Welland, Ontario; also five nieces including Mrs. Eva Reynolds of Saskatoon and two nephews. Mr. Stirling Cook of Chelinsford, Mass., and Mr. Harvey Cook of Hamilton and Toronto are sons of Mrs. Cook.
Mrs. Cook was always a very active worker in all societies of the Methodist Church in Grimsby as well as in Trinity Church in the North west until sickness compelled her to resign and her fine personality and Christian example of life will long be remembered by her many friends both here in Grimsby as well as Saskatchewan.
