Joel A. Cook


The month of May with all her Springtime glories had but a few days entered, when on Thursday, May 10, as the sun’s first rays crept over the eastern horizon, the spirit of our good friend and neighbor, Joel A. Cook, passed into eternity. He was born in the same vicinity where he spent his entire life, having lived on the same farm for fifty-eight years.

Joel A. Cook was born November 20, 1859, and departed this life May 3, 1928. Age 68 years, 5 months and 13 days.

He was married to Kate Burney on January 7, 1890. To this union was born two sons, Clarence and Henry. He is survived by his wife, two sons, and one grandson, Elmer. One brother, John Cook, and a half brother, Will Hosea, besides a large circle of other relatives and friends. Mr. Cook had not enjoyed the best of health for almost a year. His afflictions were far beyond the common lot of humanity. But he bore them bravely for Christ’s sake, and the comfort of those about him. showing all the while his sufferings were light as compared with the exceeding weight of glory in reserve for him.

As a father he was faithful and true, as a husband a devoted companion, and by his kind, unselfish spirit he won to himself a large circle of friends. As a neighbor we feel justified in saying his loss will be keenly felt, as his genial disposition ever ready to aid in the alleviation of distress, not from a sense of duty but from goodness of heart. Words cannot express the sorrow we feel in the loss we have sustained, yet we bow in humble submission to the Devine Will, as we are reluctantly compelled to acknowledge the sad truth. He desired to regain his health that he might go forth in active life and assist with his farm work in which he took great interest.

Therefore, beautiful in living and in dying, the remembrance of him will be helpful and if we listen and heed the power of God, our way will be paved into the long, narrow path which shineth more and more into a Perfect Day.

Funeral services were conducted from the home by Rev. D. Earl McKinney. Burial in Woodhill Cemetery
