Dorothy Ann Cooke
January 1, 1927 - December 10, 2016
Resided in Sacramento, CA
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mom, Dorothy Ann Popovich Cooke. She almost made it to 90 years old, and we were looking forward to celebrating her birthday on January 1st. Much of the family was able to spend her last hours with her and each other, holding her hand, singing songs, listening to music, and reading her favorite bible scriptures. She was able to say individual goodbyes to each of us while enjoying her favorite new treat – a Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino. There was even time for several family members who could not be in Sacramento to call and talk with her to share in the love. In the end, she went peacefully, gracefully, and gently. She will be missed terribly, but we hold on to the memories and stories that we get to tell about this amazing, courageous, direct and loving person. We find joy and comfort in knowing that she is reunited with her soul mate Bill, our dad who we lost almost two years ago. Never ever miss an opportunity to tell the people you love that you do. Merry Christmas Mom! And we're having a birthday party for you anyway. Chinese ok? The services will be held at Cornerstone Community Church: 3245 Cottage Way, Sacramento, CA 95825 on January 7, 2017 at 2:00 PM.
