Versailles-Mary Cook, 82, previously of Renick, WV, passed away Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2022, at Bothwell Regional Health Center.
It was on the 8th day of March in 1940 that George and Vesta (Poe) Blake welcomed their daughter, Mary M., into their home in Renick.
If the weather was nice out, Mary would be out tending her flower gardens. She also loved going antique shopping and finding special little treasures. She was an avid dog lover. Mary was always put together and looking very nice. Her greatest enjoyment came from spending time with her loving family and her animals.
Left to carry on Mary’s legacy are her son, Thomas Wade Cook of Renick; her daughter, Jeannie Lawson-Cook and wife Sylvia of Versailles; six grandchildren, Ronald Cook, Jr., Jeffery Cook, Kash Cook, Amanda Harman, Josh Blankenship, and Jacob Blankenship; several great-grandchildren; two sisters, Stella Lewis and Josephine “Jo” Workman both of Renick; along with other relatives and friends.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas Cook; two sons, Daniel and Ronald Cook; and one daughter, Marlene Cook.
Services will be at a later date in Renick.
