Obituary for Jeanne


Norma Jeanne Cook (people called her Jeanne, all of her grandkids called her Mimi)

Born October 27, 1928 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

Death date: October 4, 2022

93 years old at time of death

Most currently resided in: Wanaksink Lake, Rock Hill, NY

Parents: Inez Mabel Marker born in Couer d'Alene Idaho; John Schmick born Little York, NY

Survived by her daughter Wendy DeSol (partner Rick Loggia), four grandchildren and nine great grandchildren: Beth Imhoff Kunsch (husband Chuck Kunsch, kids Aiden and Sophie), Rebecca Mueller-Wille (husband Peter Mueller-Wille, son Lars), Christina Cook (partner Jeff Greene, kids Camron, Clayton, Cyrus, Ceno), and Jonathan Moore (wife Kristen Moore, kids Charlie and Olivia).

Predeceased by her husband George LeGrand Cook (Lee), her son Larry Cook, son in-law Dean Moore, and son-in law Paul DeSol.

Jeanne (“Mimi”, to many) was a warm, vibrant person who loved spending fun times with family and friends at her Wanaksink lake house and at her vacation home in Florida. She was happiest when surrounded by her daughter, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, extended family, and friends, and always made everyone who visited feel welcomed. Jeanne had a passion for travel, visiting every state in the US with her husband of 61 years. She also traveled to far-off destinations like Thailand, Egypt, Europe, and Mexico with her travel friends, and remembered every detail of her travels well into her 90’s! She taught elementary school for 21 years, finding joy in helping children learn and forming lasting friendships with her coworkers.

A Memorial Service will be held at Applebee-McPhillips funeral home on Monday, October 10th from 10:00am-12:00pm.
