Theresa Cook, affectionately known by her family and friends as “Terry” was a hard-working woman who was dedicated to her work and her family.
Terry grew up the eldest of six children to the late Roy and Mary cook. After graduating high school, she was accepted in the buffalo general school of nursing, which she completed in 1984. This led her to begin her lifelong vocation as a Registered Nurse for over 30 years, serving in several local hospitals and putting care into every patient she met. When she wasn’t hard at work, she enjoyed her soap operas, with her favorite being Days of our lives. She also had a love for true crime dramas, chocolate, and books and was fascinated by the stories they told. Her two fur children, Benji and Izzy, were her closest companions never too far away from her side.
Family meant everything to terry. Whenever she would call her sisters, should always make sure that her nieces, nephews, and great niece Nyah were doing okay and checked up on their life events, she had her own special bond with them especially with Nyah, having their own language together and even using nicknames no one else did. Terry and her mother, Mary were especially inseparable, so much so that they even spoke and thought the same at times.
