Her hobbies included fishing and playing cards with friends and family; these simple joys brought happiness into her life. But if you asked Stella what meant the most to her, it would undoubtedly be her Christian faith. She found solace in reading her bible daily and drew strength from it throughout her journey.

As a wonderful mother, Stella poured all her love into raising her son, George "Bo" Cook. Bo's wife Diane also held a special place in Stella's heart. The love and guidance she provided as a mother will forever be cherished by her son.
Stella's pride and joy were her two grandchildren, Bailey Cook of Lawrenceville, Ga and Robert Cook of Springfield, Ga. They were the apples of her eye, and she treasured every moment spent with them. Her love for them knew no bounds, and they will carry her beautiful spirit with them along life's journey.
Stella is preceded in death by her husband, George P. Cook; parents Perry and Pearl Edwards, and 3 children.
