Sherry M. COOK

Obituary Condolences

COOK, Sherry M.Born July 14, 1945. Child of God, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend, beloved by all who knew her. Her big smile, always broad and beautiful. Her great love for her Lord Jesus defined her life. Always one to put another first, she exemplified God's love example. For others, nothing was too good. She loved her family with a rare passion. Sherry always made sure to say I love you every time she could to her loved ones. Her Lord came first, but her family was precious to her, and she loved and adored them with all her heart. Thursday, Sherry left this world to join the Lord in the real world. A world more real, much brighter, where there is no night, no more pain, no more tears, no more crying again. She was never more alive than she is today. Walking, dancing, laughing, singing and most likely serving others. Our life here is but a shadow or reflection of the life she now shares with the Lord and those in Heaven. Sherry leaves her husband of 44 years, Wayne U. Cook; her daughter, Rachel Cook Weeks; three grandchildren, Madison Taylor Weeks, Hayden Tanner Weeks and Carys Renee Weeks; her son-in-law, Brad W. Weeks, all of Nashville, TN; her mother, Mildred Morlan of Memphis; and three sisters, Bronwein Stevens, Charlene Ulander, Doreen Dundas; and a brother, Mark Morlan, all of Memphis. Sherry was a member of Germantown Baptist Church of late, but also was a member of Ridgeway, Kirby Woods, and Bellevue Baptist during her life here with us. Sherry graduated from Overton High School in 1963. She graduated from Memphis State University in 1968 with a degree in Marketing. She was a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority. Sherry will be greatly missed by all of us who love and adore her, but this short time will pass quickly, and we will see her soon and never again will we have to say goodbye. Friends may visit the family from 5-8 p.m. Monday, August 1st at Memorial Park. Funeral Service will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Germantown Baptist Church, with Interment to follow in Memorial Park Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to ALS Association.
