Cooky enjoyed participating in and or hosting celebrations and frequent gettogethers with family and friends at holidays and at special family dinners. When hosting she made everyone feel at home and comfortable even with the chaos which sometimes occurred while preparing a meal fora dozen guests or more! Cooky was always a hard worker at times having up to three jobs. The jobs were varied and included working in a sheriff department’s office,cleaning houses, as a bar tender, bar manager, and warehouse and parts clerk. At the age of 56 Cooky went back to school and received a BA degree in Biotechnology. She then worked with the Murdock Study and DukeMedicine as a senior clinical research specialist. Cooky was very easy to talk too and provided wise counsel and a caring heart for many to discuss their problems and life which helped inseveral of her jobs. Cooky loved her house and enjoyed working in her beautiful flower garden. Her animals were always precious to her and at one point she had6 dogs as her own pack. Cooky purchased a motorcycle at the age of 40 after she decided she had enough of riding behind her husband. Bruce spent a year patiently teaching Cooky the finer points of slow speed handling of a motorcycle. After three months she was ready but continued to ride in parking lots. Eventually Cooky was out on the road, she received a long-distance female rider trophy at a BMW Rally in New York. She enjoyed the camping, riding, and stories with her friends from Virginia. Cooky will be missed by many and was loved by all.
