Obituary for Ione Martha Cook

Ione Martha Cook was born in Sandy, Oregon on June 20, 1919 to George and Anna Krebs. She passed away peacefully at her home in Yamhill Oregon on February 8th at the age of 98 with her family by her side. Ione married Franklin “Dot” Cook on March 25th 1939 in Vancouver, WA and they started their life together living in a logging camp in Sandy.
Ione loved tending her garden and flowers for which she was well known in the community. She was an avid angler and enjoyed the outdoors with her husband, sons and grandchildren. She spent many hours reeling in steelhead and salmon on the Deschutes river near Maupin and coastal rivers near her home. Many fall trips she spent hunting with her family and friends in Eastern Oregon.
Spring breaks were spent with her grandchildren having taffy pulls, barbeques and camp outs. Ione’s fried chicken, garden green beans, sourdough pancakes and homemade cinnamon rolls were family favorites.
Ione is survived by her three sons; Wayne and Dorene Cook of Yamhill, Bill Cook of Yamhill, Kenny and Karen Cook of Rogerson Idaho and five Grandchildren; Debbie Cook, Janice Heflin, Billy Cook, Brian Cook and Shelly Brown, as well as her eight great grandchildren.
There will be a viewing Thursday February 15th from 3 to 7 pm at Macy and Son Funeral Home at 135 NE Evans St., McMinnville Oregon. Memorial services will be held on Friday, February 16th at 11:00 am at Macy’s. There will be a reception for family and friends at 20841 NW Rockyford Rd. Yamhill following graveside services at Pike Cemetery.
