Obituary: Midlred "Millie" Jean Cook (1929-2008)

Mildred "Millie" Jean Cook, former Del Norte County resident, passed away June 10, in Longview, Wash., at the hospice care center.

Born June 1, 1929, in Tacoma, Wash., to George and Amelia Anderson, she grew up in the Mendocino area, where she met and married Russell Storts in 1946. The couple moved to Crescent City in 1955. She became a resident of Klamath, then moved to Fort Bragg briefly before moving to the Kelso/Longview, Wash., area three years ago.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Russell Storts, as well as an infant son, Russell Wayne Storts, and a grandson, Richard Stout.

She is survived by her estranged husband, Larry Cook, of Klamath; three children, Linda Guillen of the Roseburg, Ore., area; Nadine Carter of Kelso., and Neil Storts of Fort Bragg; one sister, Marianne Jackson, of Mendocino; seven grandchildren: Russell Stout of Myrtle Creek, Ore., Tina Coalman of Longview, Rhett Snook and Melissa Guillen of Roseburg, Martha Guillen of Medford, Ore., and Amanda and Diana Guillen of the Portland area; great-grandchildren Vanessa Storts, Sara, Amber and Britton Snook, and Tristin Stout, all of the Roseburg area, Richard and AshLee Coalman of Longview, as well as several other great-grandchildren and a great great-grandson to be born in August.

She worked at several jobs in the Crescent City area including G&G Liquors, Casa de Mana and Wood-n-Stuff gift shop. She enjoyed gardening and dancing, but she will be remembered most for the energy and time she devoted to her family and people she felt were in need. She donated her remains to science for the study of cancer research, having succumbed to mesothelemia.

No services are planned at this time, but her ashes will be spread at her infant son's gravesite.
