Pamela Joan Cooke, 65, Butler, formerly of Roan Mountain, went home to be with Jesus on Monday, February 28, 2022, at Franklin Woods Hospital with her family by her side. She was born April 24, 1956 in Banner Elk, N.C.
Pam was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother as well as a loving sister and aunt. Words cannot describe how much she loved her Lord.
Pamela was a graduate of Cloudland High School. She was a great pastor’s wife and was willing to do whatever was needed to help her husband and the church. Those who knew her loved her, and God had blessed her with a beautiful voice to sing, especially the song “Under His Wings.” And she only used it for God’s Glory.
She was preceded in death by her parents, George and Dorothy Shell Guinn; brothers, Harold Guinn, Rick Guinn and infant Clifford; and a sister, Norma Montgomery.
Those left to cherish her memory are her loving husband of 47 years, Danny Cooke; two daughters, Melanie (Todd) Guy and Elizabeth (Bobby) Guinn; and a son, of the home, Daniel “Jake” Cooke. She was the best Granny to her grandchildren, Taylor Guy, Matthew Guy, Kelsey Guy, Madison Guy, Benjamen Guy, a step-granddaughter, Caitlyn (Jake) Trivett, and her special great-grandson, Hudson Arnett; one sister, Betty Hoilman; a brother, Jim (Lola) Gwyn; sisters-in-law, Shirley Miller and Barbara Guinn; and her very special friends, Lucinda Green and Goldia Tolley. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
A service to celebrate the life of Pamela Cooke will be conducted at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 6, at Memorial Funeral Chapel with her husband, Pastor Danny Cooke, officiating. Music will be provided by the Montgomery Family. Interment will follow in the Abe Trivette Cemetery, Butler.
