Edith Pierce was born on Dec 21, 1933, in Breckenridge, Texas, to Grady and Ethel Pierce. She grew up in Breckenridge and graduated from high school there. She worked at Nap Thomas Drug store in high school and worked there until the time she married Carl W. Cook. They met at a dance and started dating. They married in Big Lake, Texas, on the way to see her sister, Bert and Jody Boyett. Her parents both loved Carl like a son. They moved to Moran shortly after marrying. Edith stayed at home raising kids, doing different things in the church and always there for cupcakes and cookies for any school projects. After Carl passed away, Edith cleaned houses, worked in the cafeteria at the school, home health and private sitting. Mrs. Cook sat with a lot of people and loved each one of them. I think Edith was made for private sitting. Her hobbies included needle crafts, reading, word search puzzles, watching John Wayne movies and playing games with family. She was very competitive in board game, cards or dominoes – don’t let the sweet little ole lady bluff you. She loved her family dearly. Just because you were not blood did not mean you were not family either.

Mrs. Cook is survived by her children, Clifford Cook and wife Kathi Cook of Farris, Texas, Carletta Dyer and husband John of Cisco, Texas, Grady Cook of Rosharon, Texas, Dora Cook Leonard and husband Chris of Moran, Texas; eight grandkids, Cassandra Cook, Clifford Cook, Jr., John and Nancy Dzubay, Shannon McKenzie, John and Nichole Dyer, Kathy Luster, Ryan and Sara Davis, Joshua Hodesh, CJ Leonard, Michael Leonard; nine great-grandkids; special nieces and nephews, Becky and Damon Garvin, Helen Cook, Darlene Stewart and Jerry Venton and several others; special grand-niece, Courtney and Hoss Sasin and Bellami Sasin; special daughter, Cynthia Gilmore; and her special dog and just about her world, Precious AKA mouse.
