Our loving Auntie, Carol V. Cook, 96, of Potterville, Pa passed away on Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021 at The Homesteads in Apalachin where she had resided for the last six years. Carol was born on Jan. 4, 1925 in Potterville, PA, a daughter of the late John Tyler and Aline (Beckwith) Cook. She attended school in West Warren, Warren Center and was a graduate of the LeRaysville High School class of 1942. Following graduation Carol went to work at Endicott Johnson Shoe Factory with her siblings. She later spent ten years as a milk inspector for DHIA. Wanting to explore what was outside of Bradford County, Carol went to work for Delta Airlines as a ticket agent in New York City. Unsure what her path of life would be, at the age of 37, Carol was called back to school and received her teaching certificate from Mansfield University. Carol opened her heart and lovingly taught school in Warren Center and in 1970 when Northeast Bradford School opened she taught kindergarten and first grade for over twenty years there.
Auntie Carol was someone who always had good stories to tell, but just as importantly she knew how to be a good listener as well. She was patient, kind and the very best friend you could ever hope to find. Always generous and hardworking, Carol shared her abundances of love with those she knew. A friendly phone call or a letter warmed the hearts of many. Friendships were formed while volunteering at Robert Packer Hospital and the Bradford County Historical Society. Carol attended the West Warren Congregational Church. She also was a member of the Warren Center Senior Citizens and the PA State Retired Teachers organization. A talented seamstress, Carol also enjoyed knitting, crocheting, completing puzzles and watching college basketball.
Carol will be greatly missed by her sister Alice Brown of Rome, Pa; several nieces, nephews, great nieces, nephews and their families. She was welcomed into heaven by her parents; her brothers and sister-in-law: Ronald “Bud” T. and Joanne Cook; Bernard “Edie” R. Cook; Joseph Brown; a nephew Randy Brown.
