On October 5, 2020, Dorothy Cook went to be with Jesus and was reunited with her husband, Rev. Jimmy Cook. There is great rejoicing in heaven over her sweet and long-awaited homecoming. Dorothy was the eldest child of Doyle and Florine Hutchens Moye. She was a refined lady who cared for her family with great love and devotion. She served her husband’s congregations with dignity, generosity, and grace. She will be remembered for her hugs, encouragement, and strength. She leaves behind a wonderful legacy and cherished memories that will live on in the hearts of those she touched.
Dorothy supported her husband faithfully for 65 years. She was hard-working. She quietly made countless people feel cared for, thought of, and remembered through her notes, birthday cards, and phone calls. She also had a sharp memory, and once she met someone, she would always remember their name. She loved animals and being outdoors, using her green thumb to add beauty to any place she lived or worked.
In addition to her husband, Dorothy is preceded in death by her brothers Kenneth and Kyle Moye. She leaves behind four sisters: Mary Jo Watson (Tommy), Peggy Wright (Warren), Shirley Dunahoo (Emory), and Brenda Faye Rodriguez.
