Cook, Kate (14 June 1873 - 9 June 1955) 

Mrs. Kate Cook, age 81, of Humbird, Wis., died Thursday, June 9, at the home of her cousin, Mrs. Nelson Parrott. 

The body in charge of the Bergemann Funeral Home was taken to the Congregational Church at 1:00 p.m. on Monday where it reposed until time of services. 

Funeral services were held Monday, June 13, with the Rev. Virgil Nulton officiating.  Burial was in the Neillsville City Cemetery.  

Mrs. Cook was born June 14, 1873, at Black River Falls, and lived in that community until her marriage to Lon Cook on April 20, 1896, at Hewettville.  They resided on a farm in the Town of Hewett until the death of Mr. Cook in 1936.  She then moved to Neillsville, where she began work as the housekeeper in the Arthur Dudley home.  Several years ago she moved to Humbird where she lived until her last illness made it impossible to care for herself.  Two months ago she went to make her home with her cousin. 

She is survived by a granddaughter, Mrs. Laurel Ragona of South San Francisco, Cal. and one great-granddaughter. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband and one son, Ben.
