family and friends. She was also a loving sister and daughter. She
didn't play games when it came down to her siblings, they called
she came kicking butts and asking questions later (much later).
She was a strong, proud woman/mother who did her best to care for
her family/friends. Cookie was loved by everyone whether they were
blood or not. Cookie or Roz as some of you may have called her was
preceded in death by her parent, step parents, brother, aunts, uncles,
nieces, nephews, cousins and great-nephew who all greeted her at
the gate to welcome her home with open loving arms. She leaves to
