My condolences to Catherine & Glenn (& families) on the passing of your dear Mother. Blanche was a hard-working, kind & friendly soul. Certainly Cook’s garage was the hub of activity for Sandhill. My very first job was scooping ice cream at Cook’s garage & Blanche was my first boss. May the memories be cherished & stories retold.

Condolence from Richard Hayward on November 7th, 2019 4:13 pm

Condolences to you and your family.
I worked at Cook’s Shell throughout highschool with many of my classmates. Blanche and Edgar were lovely people and always very kind to us.

We never went hungry while working a shift! I have fond memories of her bringing coffee and toast on those super cold and early mornings opening the station. She was always interested around report card time to ensure our marks were good and work wasn’t impacting our studies.

A very classy and caring person who always had a smile and a minute for a chat. Very sorry for your loss

Condolence from Linda Rhodes on November 21st, 2019 2:16 pm

Mrs Cook was the kindest, warmest person – she was always smiling.
Her and Edgar shared many events with our family – including my wedding.
It is with great sadness to say goodbye.
Linda Rhodes , John Hii & Family
