A devoted wife of 52 years and loving mother, Linda is survived by her husband, Dewey Wayne Cook, her sons Brian Cook (Eve) of Roanoke, V.A., Andrew Cook (Katie) of Huntersville, N.C. and her grandchildren Kaleb, Kyle, Laine, Kamden, Myers, Banks and Crews all of whom she loved dearly.

Linda attended Longwood College and was employed with First National Bank, Carter Bank & Trust and Walmart. Linda’s cherished years of motherhood were filled with endless nights at the baseball fields watching her two sons play ball. Planting flowers in the spring and watching the birds and butterflies brought Linda great joy, as did seeing the world through the eyes of her seven grandchildren. Linda’s passion for cooking and baking desserts was enjoyed by all who stepped foot in her kitchen.
