Charlotte Yvonne Cooke, October 18, 1962~June 1, 2017
She was born October 18, 1962 in Brawley, CA. and grew-up in a large family outside of Imperial, CA. Charlotte attended Imperial Schools K-12 and graduated from Imperial High School Class of 1980.
Charlotte loved the many friends and co-workers she made over the years and never met a stranger. She loved her partner in life, Rodney Van Hoozen and together they made a home in Elkins, AR. while raising their son, Kevin whom she also loved very much, born in 1988. Up until her illness, she worked at Washington Regional Medical Center and loved to cook and care for her family. Her pastime was spent watching Rodney and Kevin garden, going to the casino, playing bingo and scrabble.
Charlotte was preceded in death by her partner, Rodney Van Hoozen and parents, Walter and Bernadette Cooke.
She is survived by her son, Kevin Van Hoozen of Elkins, AR; brothers, Lawrence (Linda) Cooke of Imperial, CA, Johnny (Beckie) Cooke of Bella Vista, AR, Robert (Pat) Cooke of Salt Lake City, UT, Danny (Pam) Cooke of Imperial, CA; sisters, Cathy (Dan) Bickford of Gresham, OR, Susie (Robert) Bredernitz of Yuma, AZ. and Jeanette (Ron) Owen of Brawley, CA; numerous nieces; nephews; great-nieces; great-nephews; aunts and cousins, too numerous to name.
