AKWESASNE – Mrs. Sally Ann Cook, 57, 260 Hemlock Street, Snye, passed away Wednesday evening, April 23, 2014 at Cornwall Community Hospital after a brief illness.
Sally was born January 30, 1957 in Cornwall, Ontario, the daughter of the late Alex and Rita Lazore Smoke. She attended schools in Snye and General Vanier in Cornwall. A marriage to Stanley Cook ended in separation.
Sally was a health care aide at Iakhihsohtha in Snye for many years as well as assisting her sisters in their business, Smoke’s Catering Service. She was a member of the Akwesasne Death Benefits Group and played pool for many years. She enjoyed playing volleyball and softball, but perhaps her greatest enjoyment was the precious time she spent with her family, especially her grandchildren.
Sally is survived by her children, Kevin, Kelley, twins Kayla and Karla (Wade Vega), and Kristine Cook, all of Akwesasne; her grandsons, Karroniakta, Koby, Darius, Karson, and Dalton; her sisters, Veronica Smoke, Mary Terrance, Dolores Swamp, Lisa Ward, Valerie (Willy) Ramirez, Dorothy Smoke, Iris (Pete) LaFrance, all of Akwesasne, Clara Burk of Syracuse; her brothers, Alex Smoke, Jr. and Allen (Chrissy) Smoke, all of Akwesasne; her godchildren, Janet Terrance, Stephanie Smoke, Lance Lazore; and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Sally was predeceased by her godson, Josh Mitchell on August 21, 2008.
Friends may call at the Akwesasne Homemakers beginning 2:00 PM Saturday until 1:00 PM Monday. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Monday 2:00 PM at St. Regis Catholic Church. Cremation will follow.
Memorial contributions may be made in her memory to Iakhihsohtha.
