Evelyn Flora Cook

Memorial services will take place Saturday for Evelyn Flora Cook, who passed away peacefully Feb. 20, 2006, at her home in South Lake Tahoe.

Evelyn was born May 24, 1925, in Mt. Carmel, Pa. She graduated from high school in Pennsylvania before moving to New York, where she worked for General Foods International in the Empire State Building. General Foods International later transferred her to Oakland, Calif. She married her first husband, William Desmond Walters, in 1951, and moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1960.

While in Tahoe she worked as a bookkeeper for several businesses including H&R Block, Walborg Welding and the Muffler Palace. She married Donald Cook on Feb. 14, 1981. Evelyn was an active volunteer with several organizations. She was a member of Barton Memorial Hospital Auxiliary and enjoyed working in the gift shop and prepared taxes with the AARP Tax Aide program for 20 years. She was also a member of the Cowboys and Petticoats square dance club. Evelyn was sweet and helpful in every way and she will be sorely missed.

She is survived by her husband of 25 years, Donald Cook of South Lake Tahoe; daughter, Patricia Walters of Sacramento, Calif.; daughter and son-in-law, Carol and Greg Daum of South Lake Tahoe; grandsons, Jake and Luke Daum of South Lake Tahoe; sister, Rosemarie Benson of Sacramento; and many friends. She was predeceased by her first husband.

Memorial services will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 3460 Spruce Ave.
