– January 14, 2009
Rebecca Pearl Cook (nee Appelry) was born in a farm house in the Pembina Valley near Maryapolis Manitobia. She went to school and graduated from high school. She also went on to become a one room school room teacher of which she enjoyed very much. She went onto join the Royal Canadian Air Force and there trained as a meteorologist and topped her class. She also toured Canada Coast to Coast three times in the R.C.A.F. Women’s Precision Drill Squadron to boost the war effort, in every major City in Canada and even some in the U.S.A. She was an amazing woman who not only was daring and progressive… she touched people with her kindness and soft ways. She was truly a pioneer in her own time. She is greatly missed and beloved by many. She is survived by her daughters Victoria, Clare (Cecily), Deirdre, Cynthia, her Grandsons, Sam, Brant, Dan, Blair, Eli, Simon, Granddaughters Lucy and Amy, Great-grandchildren, Brin, Rebecca, Josie, Jillian, Luceiia, Shelagh, Lindsay, Matthew, James and Sylis.
She would want us to remember the good times and forget the rest in 20 years we will only remember the good anyway. There will be a spring memorial to remember her life. A notice will be put out for those who wish to remember her.
