Betty Cook Obituary

Betty, 76, passed away peacefully on January 26th, 2024, surrounded by family and loved ones. Born on October 29th, 1947, to Mack and Billie Smith, she was a wife, mother, sister, and friend who touched the lives of many with her warmth, kindness, sassiness, and unwavering love.

For 19 years, Betty worked for the Okaloosa County School District. She loved what she did and was highly dedicated. Over those 19 years, she touched many people's lives, including children. Fishing was one of Betty’s many hobbies, including watching birds, playing solitaire, cooking, and spending time with her friends and family. Betty loved her children, grandchildren, and family considerably. Betty was truly a mother and a friend to everyone she met.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Fenton “Jimmy” Cook, father and mother, Mack and Billie Smith, and her brother, Billy Mack Smith.

She is survived by children, Rodney Cook and his wife Tara, and Randy Cook and his wife, Kim. Grandchildren: Bayleigh, Levi, Dalton, AJ, Jason, Nicole, Taylor, and Lillie. Sister, Bobbie Gilman and many nieces and nephews that she loved dearly. The memories of her love and laughter will forever be cherished.
