Evelyn Cook Adams

Our loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother, Evelyn Davenport Cook Adams, returned home to her heavenly father Tuesday, May 12, 2015. She was born July 24, 1923 to her parents, Samuel and Chloe Lorlean Davenport. She enjoyed telling people that she had a parade on her birthday every year. Evelyn was a member of the LDS church. In her earlier years Evelyn was a waitress at the Bonneville CafĂ©, then later on worked at the Tooele Army Depot where she retired. Evelyn loved camping, fishing and just loved to be outdoors. When she wasn’t outdoors she loved to crochet, which she won several ribbons. She also enjoyed writing poems and doing her two favorite word games, scrabble and crosswords. She was always telling stories and jokes, she loved to make people laugh. She loved her family and was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She wasn’t afraid to tell you what was on her mind and what she thought of things, which made things much more exciting in the family and everyone loved to know what Evelyn had to say. Evelyn is preceded in death by her first husband Daniel Cook, her second husband Norm Adams, her son Danny Cook, daughter Norma Adams, brothers; Layland Sackett and Jack Davenport, sisters; Dorothy Sackett and Alice Green, and daughter-in-law Terri Cook. Evelyn is survived by her sons, Dutch (Peggy) Cook, John Cook, Gene (Linda) Cook, Blain (Julie) Adams, 13 grandchildren, 34 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren, sisters Neva (Brad) Bracken, and Lavena Smith, brother Dwayne Davenport. Special thanks to all the sweet people at Diamond Janes. You made her stay there feel just like home. Evelyn’s funeral services will be held in the Grantsville 3rd Ward Chapel at 428 South Hale Street, Grantsville, Utah on Friday, May 15, 2015 at11:00 am (there will be no viewing prior). Services entrusted to Didericksen Memorial.
