After several years traveling in their truck and RV trailer with other couples, the Cooks’ health began to decline. In July 2007 they moved to an assisted-living center in Weatherford. Both are now 88 years old and live in Holland Lake Nursing Center.
The Cooks have four children. William Burton Cook Jr. and his wife, Karen Powell Cook, live in Weatherford. They have three daughters and seven grandchildren, all living in the DFW Metroplex. Sharon Gail West lives in Burleson. She has a daughter and son, four grandchildren and a great-grandchild all living close by. Gwendolyn Marie and Jake Hudson live in Las Vegas, with one daughter and her three children in Idaho and one son and a grandson in Lewisville.
Benny Wedgeworth and Jennittie Stults Cook also live near Weatherford with a son and two grandchildren in Grapevine, and a daughter and husband in Weatherford.
The family is hosting a reception for their parents on Saturday, April 27, 2-4 p.m., at the Holland Lake Nursing Center. Friends are welcome to stop by and greet them.
