My wild, young-at-heart mother, Greta-Ann Doutré Cook, peacefully died March 1, 2014.

Although life had thrown many challenges at her, my mom never seemed to slow down or give up. She lived life to the fullest and fought to stay on this Earth to care for me and love me as long as she possibly could.

She had much love, gratitude and admiration for me, her family, friends and community.

Never have I seen someone so passionate about the outdoors or as adventurous and creative as my mother. She loved nothing more than soaking up the sun and wakeboarding out at our house on Lake Sutherland.

She chose a lifelong career with the National Park Service, working in Shenandoah, Yellowstone and then our own Olympic National Park.

And, as if work alone wasn't enough, all throughout her life, Greta spent copious amounts of time volunteering wherever she could.

Survivors include myself, Caylie Pauline Cook; her mother, Greta Doutré; brothers David, Craig and Scott; sister Lisa; as well as our beloved dogs, Jezzi and Tink.

She was preceded in death by my wonderful father, Paul Cook, and her father, David Lamar Doutré.

I am forever grateful for everyone who has helped my mother and me throughout the years. Thank you to the many devoted medical staff and friends that have cared for her.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, April 5, at 1 p.m. at the Port Angeles Senior Center, 328 East Seventh Street.

Those who knew and loved my mother are welcome. Bring your stories and memories to share.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, 132 South 600 East, No. 100, Salt Lake City, UT 84102.
