Life Story / Obituary


Elizabeth “Lizzie” Cook, age 54, died Wednesday September 30, 2015 at her home in Allegan after a long fight with cancer.

Lizzie was born in Holland, the daughter of Laverne (deceased) and Joan (Cook) Serr. She loved being around people, making many friends along the way. Lizzie’s family would like to say a special thank you to all the caregivers over the years that took such loving care for her; especially Robin Iehl who became her special caregiver and was always there, becoming her “best” of friend.

Lizzie was the type of happy person who always had a smile on her face; friendly to all who met her. She loved to go fishing, garage sales, and also dancing at the different functions. She was loved by all who knew her and will be sadly missed by all that love her.

Surviving are; mother Joan Serr and step-father Carlyle of Holland, brothers Gregory (Betsy) Cook of Holland, and Robert Cook of Barefoot Bay, FL. Step-brothers and sisters; Robert Serr, Michael (Arlene) Serr, Rebecca (Jeff) Israel, and Julie Serr. Aunts and uncles; Richard (Nancy) Sudd of Reno, NV, Raymond (Nancy) Wirkus of Longrove, IL, and Marilyn (Gary) St. Pierre of Bloomingdale, IL. Also surviving are nieces, nephews, cousins, and great nieces.

A memorial mass will be held Thursday October 8, 2015 at 11:00 at St. Francis de Sales with a visitation prior at 10:00. In lieu of flowers the family requests that contributions be made to Hospice of Holland, Fulfilling Life Ministries (A-5734 143rd Avenue Holland, MI 49423), ARC of Allegan (219 Hubbard St. Allegan, MI 49010) or a charity of one’s choice.
