RALEIGH – Rejoice in the Lord always … Philippians 4:4. Louise Daniels Cook passed peacefully at The Oaks at Mayview on April 6.

Born in Knightdale, NC, she was the eldest of eight children of Albert and Ola Daniels. She was predeceased by William Q. Cook, her husband of 42 years, and daughter Jane Cook Remling. Brothers Melegia, Thomas, and Josephuse Daniels and sister Doris Perry also predeceased her.

Louise is survived by daughter Judy D. Cook, son-in-law John A. Remling and John’s daughter Sudie Wagoner. She is survived by sisters Pearl Wall of Raleigh, Bobbie Terrill of Raleigh, Shirley Ussery of Clayton, and many special nieces and nephews.

Louise attended Meredith College and worked in auto insurance for over 47 years. She was one of the first female adjusters in NC. She was a charter member of Emmanuel Baptist Church, teaching adult Sunday School there for more than 50 years. She also provided leadership in the women and senior adult organizations. Louise was an avid gardener and excellent cook. She will be remembered as an outstanding wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend. Her life exemplified the Christian faith, love, and care for others.

A graveside service to celebrate her life will be held Saturday July 18 at Montlawn Memorial Park at 10:00 AM. Interment will follow the service.

    My step-father was a resident at the Oaks of Mayview with Mrs. Cook. When I visited him every week, I had the pleasure of visiting with Mrs. Cook as well. She was so very sweet and friendly. She was always smiling and concerned for others. She will be missed. 💕

    Judy, I enjoyed spending time with your Mom when my father-in-law was there. I missed seeing her and so a few weeks back, I visited with her on a Sunday morning. She was always so sweet and smiling constantly. I loved walking through those doors and seeing her look so happy to see my face. I am so glad that I had the chance to spend some time with her once I was able to spend time around people again after my life changes. I will have you and your family in my thoughts.

    Judy, your mother was a treasure and a joy to be with. I have fond memories of being in her presence–she was always smiling and positive. Blessings to you as you grieve and fill the void.
