Granville, New York – On Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021, Judy Cook fell asleep in death after a long battle with illness. The youngest of three siblings, Judy was born to Flora and John Holmes on July 14, 1950. Judy grew up with her brothers Ralph and Eugene on a dairy farm in Middle Granville where she developed a love for horses. She was known for riding bareback and barefoot, though she at times used a saddle. Judy kept horses until her health prohibited it.
Due to the fine example of her mother, Judy developed a deep love for the Creator Jehovah God and symbolized her dedication to him by water baptism on Sept. 30, 1963. She loved her spiritual brothers and sisters. Many were like her own parents and siblings.
Judy fell in love with a young man named Lanceton Cook, and they were married on July 1 “in the summer of ’69.” Together they had six healthy boys: Randall, Russell, Trevor, Tracey, Justin and Jordan.
For hobbies, Judy loved reading, gardening, volleyball, card games, lighthouses and trips to Maine. Of course, she adored her grandchildren, and they were a great comfort during her illness.
Judy was predeceased by her parents John and Flora Holmes, her brother Ralph Holmes, and her husband Lance Cook. Judy is survived by her brother Eugene Holmes and wife Emilia. She also is survived by her six children and nine grandchildren: Randall Cook and husband John Kinnicutt; Russell Cook and wife Bonnie; Trevor Cook and former daughter-in-law Michelle and their daughter Ariana; Tracey Cook and his sons Alex and Rowin; Justin Cook and wife Jamie and their children Arielle, Jasmine, Drake and Lilian; and Jordan Cook and his daughters Aislin and Zoey.
A funeral service is being scheduled remotely over Zoom with both phone and internet access. If you would like to attend this event, please contact Russell Cook at 518-499-5086 for details.
