Joleta Cook

Joleta Jean Cook, 76, of McPherson, KS, passed away Sunday, February 12, 2017. She was a homemaker and wife of a farmer. Joleta was born June 11, 1940, in Beloit, KS, to Willard & Marie (Funk) McClintock. She graduated high school at Simpson, KS.

Joleta married Blaine V. Cook on November 20, 1960, in Simpson, KS. She was a member of First United Methodist Church, McPherson. Her passion was her family, being a wife, mother, and grandmother to her four grandchildren. While raising her two children, she stayed home and made draperies and babysat. She later worked part time as a secretary for an accounting firm and loved doing tax accounting. She then started doing tax accounting with her dear friend Mary Koehn for several years. She loved to cook and bake for family and friends. She also enjoyed playing cards with friends and belonged to a bridge club. After a brain aneurism in December, 2013, she lived in Brookdale nursing home where she passed peacefully with her family at her bedside.
