June Marie Jorgensen Cook passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on December 17, 2019 at Canyon Creek Assisted Living in Cottonwood Heights, UT. She was born on June 20, 1934 in Salt Lake City, UT to Grace Marie Covey Jorensen and Charles Jorgensen.
She graduated high school and went on to marry S. Reed Hinckley in which they had 6 children. They were later divorced. She worked for the Salt Lake City School District as a bus assistant for many years and where she met and married her sweetheart David Bruce Cook on April 7, 1989. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple for time and all eternity. She retired from the district where she enjoyed spending time with her sweetheart and family. She was a loving mom, wife, grandma, and great-grandma who would do anything for her family. She had a love and passion for all animals, loved long car rides everywhere, prided herself on her amazing doll collection and her ability to play the accordion. She was a social butterfly and will be very missed by all those who knew her spunky personality and charm.
The family would like to thank Canyon Creek Assisted Living for the wonderful love and care they have shown her for the past 2 years.
