  1. My heart is Breaking for Myron and the whole family. I will have a hole in my heart where she belongs. Her family and friends were her life. We should all take a lesson from her and the way she lived her life. Loved her like Family…

  2. this is really hard for me,can’t say what I really want to say.Julia and I became good friends when she came to work with us at House of Hair.We went places,shopped at so many places,consoled each other more than once. Yes Cookie was a friend that I never had till then.She was my best friend I will always love her,I can’t beieve she’s gone,heaven opened the gates and let god’s angel in.forever in my heart I love you my friend and sadly missed.

  3. She had an infectious smile and personality that lit up a room and put people at ease.
    That’s how my wife Rebecca said it, I could not say it any better, love from the Papp family.

  4. I will never forget the love and friendship that cookie and I had from the moment we met she was like a sister to me she certainly will be missed by everyone she touched she was a beautiful loving kind giving person love you cook

  5. Cookie was a good friend and a great stepmother for my children and grandchildren. She loved life and people and I’m sure she’s dancing in heaven right now. God has taken you home but you will always remain in our hearts.

  6. My heart is broken at the loss of my Dear Friend Cookie and for her son Myron and family. The first time I met Cookie was after the birth of my daughter Stacie. (Nov 20,1973) This cute little gal knocked on my door and said she came to see our new baby! She told me she lived in the culdisac on Inland Drive same street as me. She gushed over my little bundle of joy and from that time on we were best friends! Cookie’s son Myron, and my son Chris were in the same grade and they became best friends too!! When I lost my son Chris on August 25, 2020 Cookie came and stayed the whole weekend with me comforting me and just being there for me! Little did I know then that Cookie would fall to Cancer and I would be attending her funeral such a short time from then. Noone could ever cut my hair like Cookie and never have found anyone who knows just how I like my hair. Cookie is a one in a million friend, there is just noone like her and I will miss her no matter how long I live. Cookie took me and my children to meet her family in West Virginia years ago and I never met all of her 11 brothers and sisters, but the ones I did meet and her Wonderful Mother , one could tell they came out of the same Batch of Cookies!!! I love you Myron and am always there for you if you need me or Art. Love Joann

  7. Aunt Cookie you’ve always been an angel in my eyes. You’re finally getting your golden wings. Oh the memories you created for me and my sisters during childhood. We had 8 Aunts and you were the tops, to each of us. You always new how to have a good time. I will never forget our dance parties, our camping trips… I can see you dancing in heaven now. You were a blessing to our lives and I will love you always. Until I see you again, Love you sweetheart.
