Phyllis Elaine Cooke

The passing of Phyllis Elaine Cooke, beloved wife of the late Hugh H. Cooke, Of Back Bay NB, occurred at her residence on December 22, 2023. Born in Back Bay on April 28,1936, she was the daughter of the late Franklin and Laversa (French) Cooke.

A loving mother, grandmother, and aunt, she is survived by her son Franklin (Penny) Cooke of Back Bay NB, her loving daughters: VickyLynn (Eric) Cooke of Back Bay, and Starr (Mike) Cooke of Mascarene NB; daughter in law Nancy Cooke of Bocabec NB; grandchildren: Carson (Faith) Cooke of St. George NB, Rodney (Samantha) Cooke of Bocabec NB, Nickilee (Jonathan) Cooper of Letang NB, Brett (Sylvia) Cooke of Utopia NB, Bethany Cooke (Tim Stevens) Of Mascarene NB; greatgrandchildren: Cameron, Cadence, Chase, Clara, Noah, Ryder, Taylor Lynn, Luca, Lincoln, Stella, Evan, Julianna, and Jamie, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Phyllis walked arm in arm into the gates of heaven, with her cousin, and lifelong best friend by her side, Faye Leslie, who passed on the same morning.

In her earlier years Phyllis worked Connor’s Brothers in Back Bay. She then took on the task of homemaker and raising her beloved family and running the household. When able she loved knitting as well as doing word search puzzles. A big part of her life was church and her Bible, as well as spending time with her family especially her grandchildren. She will be sadly missed by her family and all that knew her.

The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude and thanks to: Charlotte County Extra Mural, Doctor Vance Anderson and Doctor Christian Mackin, Pastor Paul Legere, Sarah Polley and niece Wendy Cleghorn for their kind and compassionate care, as well as  the love and affection shown to Phyllis and her family during her illness. An extra special thank you to granddaughter Nickilee for her care to her grandmother in her final days.
