Cook, Vivian (1913? - JAN 1929)
(Shelton, Wash. Exchange)
Vivian Cook, aged 15, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Cook, former resident of Centralia, died yesterday in a Shelton hospital of burns received Sunday when she attempted to put a kettle of water on a heater and her nightdress caught fire. Mrs. Cook, owner of a restaurant near the family home in Shelton, saw the blaze and rushing to the house, smothered the flames, but not until the girl had been burned from her knees to her head. The mother herself was burned about the hands.
The Cook family moved to Shelton about a year ago. They formerly lived at Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. The girl's body was brought here and is at the Stricklin mortuary pending funeral arrangements.
