I worked with cookie for over 10 years at service merchandise many years ago in Montgomery. She was so fun to work with and the life of the party. Loved dancing, singing, and loved Elvis. I visited her many times at her house and she always made me laugh. Her husband John was a great man . I will miss you so much cookie. Dancing 💃 and singing 🎶 to the oldies was the best!! Rest in peace my friend. Love you.... Teenie Beenie ( Tina)

Cookie, working with you at Staples is one of my fondest life memories. Your love of Elvis and dancing to Jailhouse Rock at start up meetings made it so happy for my team. May you now be able to embrace John and my the good Lord wrap is loving calming arms around your family and all of your friends. In Jesus name I pray.

Awe, so very sorry to hear of Cookie’s passing, I couldn’t even count all the good times & laughs we had back in the day when her & my Mom were so close in So. Blooming Grove. She was always good for a laugh & a good time. I’ll always remember Francine’s dollhouse, the day Elvis died( OMG, she was such a mess ), the time she sent the confused old man to pick up cigarettes for her & he forgot where she lived, and what a wonderful person she was. Rest In Peace Cookie, prayers for the family 😢🙏🏻
