Obituary: Ann Campoy Cook


Ann Campoy Cook
A Celebration of Life for Ann (Campoy) Cook of Exeter, Calif. will be held at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 14 at Whitney’s Wild Oak Ranch, 19242 Avenue 300 in Exeter. She passed away on Dec. 28, 2017 at the age of 80.
Ann was born to Raphael and Amelia Campoy in Los Angeles on March 7, 1937. She was the youngest of eight children. She moved to Exeter in 1971 with her husband Larry Cook and their four daughters, Lauren, Lynne, Lesley, and Lydia.
Ann was known as Mrs. Cook to many students in nearly 30 years of working in many positions for Farmersville Unified School District. In Farmersville, Exeter and Visalia, Ann coached many youth basketball and softball teams. Along with her husband, she was very involved in the California State Racing Pigeon Organization. Ann will be remembered by her friends and family as someone who was passionately devoted to her children, husband and very large extended family.
She absolutely loved cooking for everyone (while yelling at football games on TV) and hosting family events. Nobody could whip up dinner for a crowd faster and with more love than Mrs. Cook. She is survived by her husband Larry Cook; daughters Lauren Rodriguez, Lynne Arnold, Lesley Hannah, Lydia Van Landingham; grandchildren Brandon Estrada, Jonathan Rodriguez, Ryan Rodriguez, Mark Hannah, Jennifer Hannah, Spencer Arnold and Camille Arnold; as well as her sister, Minnie Campoy, plus dozens of extended family members.
In July her family will gather in Sandpoint, Idaho to inter her remains in the Cook Family Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to the family at Services entrusted to Evans Miller Guinn Chapel in Exeter.
