terry cook obit 11-1-12Our loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend Terri Jean Cook returned to her Heavenly Father on Oct. 30. She was born June 22, 1946 in Tooele to Eugene and Dorothy Lohnes. Terri married the love of her life, Delbert Allen (John) Cook, on May 24, 1969. This year they celebrated 43 wonderful years together. She retired from Tooele Army Depot after serving 29 years in the personnel office doing what she did best, and that was listening to and helping people. She was most recently employed at Deseret Chemical Depot as a workforce transitional specialist, where she touched everyone she came in contact with. She was recently given the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service for hard work, dedication and devotion to all those she assisted. Her career, which she loved, helped employees enter the work force and then ended by helping them exit or move on. Terri was the most caring, giving, kind, loving and compassionate person you would ever meet. She would have done anything and everything for those in need, especially for her family. She was the glue that held everyone and everything together in times of crisis and grief. She helped fill the void that was left in her niece and nephew’s lives after they lost their parents. What brought her the greatest joy and was the highlight of her life was her seven grandchildren. She loved following all their activities and was totally involved in their lives. Terri will be greatly missed by her loving family, as well as friends and all who knew her. She was a member of St. Marguerite Catholic Church. Terri is survived by her husband, John Cook, daughters Amy Miller (Matt) and Jami Hall (Dustin), sister Susan Lohnes, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by brother Craig Lohnes, sister-in-law Janiel Lohnes, and mother and father Eugene and Dorothy Lohnes. Visitation and eulogy will be held Nov. 2 from 4 to 5 p.m. followed by a Rosary from 5 to 6 p.m. at St. Marguerite Catholic Church, 15 S. Seventh Street in Tooele. Funeral Mass will be held Nov. 3 at noon, also at St. Marguerite Catholic Church. Interment will be in the Grantsville City Cemetery. Terri’s family wishes to extend thanks for the care Terri received from the doctors, nurses and staff at the University of Utah Hospital Intensive Care Unit, as well as Harmony Home Care in Tooele.
