Marion Lee Cook, AICP (1971 – 2018)

Marion Cook was a wonderful person, always with a generous smile and professional image. She was active in American Planning Association and the Federal Planning Division. She served as a community planner at the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center in San Antonio. Previously, she was a community planner for Tyndall Air Force Base and Eglin AFB in Florida. Marion completed her MSP from Florida State University. She worked for local government as a City Planner and CRA Director for the City of Lynn Haven, Fla., and Program Planner for the City of Largo, Fla. She began her planning career with the Gail Easley Company.

For those who were lucky enough to have met her, her sunshine shone on us and our lives are forever better for knowing her. She loved with her whole heart, listened to truly understand, and lived to serve and make the world better. Wherever Marion went, she put her whole heart into whatever she did; but because of her amazing work ethic, she completed God's work down here too early for everybody who met her. As to her many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and fellow congregants, we'll remember with joy her love and loyalty, her humor and spunk, and fun times that we had at places like Schooner's and any other place serving great seafood or Greek food. We rejoice in her life and know that she will do an amazing job in her new mission up above, where she is reunited with her parents, grandparents, and loved ones.

Services were held in Texas and Florida to cherish her memory.
