Delores M. Cook age 74 passed away peacefully on Friday, December 20, 2019 at Asbury Park in Newton, Kansas. She was born December 15, 1945, in Marion, Kansas to Willis Linn and Gertrude Schill Linn. She was a 1963 graduate of Marion High School. She married Chilson Cook in 1964, in Newton, Kansas.
She worked for many years as a custodian at Newton High School and was known and loved by generations of Newton students. Delores truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; she was selfless and her desire to serve went beyond the church as well. She is probably best known throughout the community for her skill in preparing food. She was faithful in providing individual meals for the sick and at the same time she relished in coordinating large carry in dinners. She is survived by her son, Wayne Cook and daughter in law Pam Cook, her sisters, Barb (Larry) Creamer, Betty Loney (Tom) and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents, 1 brother, Lonny and her longtime friend Al Heine.
Family, friends and others whose lives Delores touched are invited to the First Missionary Church 1300 Berry Avenue, Newton, Kansas 67114 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. visitation and 11:00 a.m. Celebration of Life Service. To express condolences, visit www.petersenfamilyfuneralhome.com
