Martha "Jean" Cook

Mrs. Martha “Jean” Cook, 88, of Lebanon, passed away Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014, at Homewood Health Campus in Lebanon.

Devoted to her husband and sons, Jean was a homemaker for many years. After her sons were raised, she went to work at Turner, where she performed clerical duties. She was particular in her appearance and always made sure she looked her best when leaving the house.
