March 22, 1943 — May 9, 2023


Nancy E. Cook, age 80, of Munising, died early Tuesday morning, May 9, 2023 while surrounded by her family at UPHS - Marquette.   She was born in Detroit on March 22, 1943 to Lawrence and Alice (Wilbur) Hebert.  When Nancy was around the age of twelve, the family moved back to her parent’s hometown of Munising.  She graduated from Wm. G. Mather High School in 1961. On August 25, 1962, she married Robert Thomas Cook and together raised their four children.  Nancy was a stay-at-home mom and a domestic goddess.  She was a member of Sacred Heart Church and a craft club where she enjoyed Artex painting, card making, and jewelry making.  Nancy enjoyed playing card games of cribbage, euchre, skip-bo and rummikub.  She was a kind woman unless she was playing a game against you, then she was cut throat competitive and would call you “rat” if you beat her.  She loved being with her family and grandchildren.  She and Bob would spend time walking together, playing cards with friends, and watching the Detroit Lions.  They were married over thirty-five years when he preceded her in death on January 30, 1998.
