Geneva Davidson "Jenny" Cook


Geneva Davidson “Jenny” Cook, age 77, passed away Monday, March 15, 2021 at Johnston Memorial Hospital, Abingdon, Va.

Jenny was a loving wife, mom, and mamaw. She was one of Marion’s most known ladies – Jenny was the Breakfast Manager at Hardee’s where she worked 23 years before retiring. When she wasn’t working, she loved taking care of her family, especially those grandkids – and she also enjoyed shopping on QVC. Throughout her life, Jenny’s love for God and her Bible reading kept her going, especially when she was at her sickest. She will surely be missed.

She was preceded in death by her parents, George and Harriet Davidson; and several brothers and sisters.

Jenny is survived by her husband of 58 years, Kenneth Lee Cook of Marion, Va.; son, Kenneth Jason Cook, and wife, Linda of Richmond, Va.; daughter, Roxana Simons and Randy Tickle, of Marion, Va.; five grandchildren, Jordan Adams and Kimberly Duncan of Rural Retreat, Va., Jacob Adams of Abingdon, Va., Rebekah, Peters and husband, William of Crewe, Va., Joseph Adams and Summer Allen, and Rylee Johnsey, all of Marion, Va.; six great-grandchildren, Garrett Adams, Emma Adams, Sophia Adams, Aubrey Adams, Emersyn Adams, and one on the way, Eliana Adams; several nieces and nephews. 

Funeral Services will be held Thursday, March 18, 2021 at 7 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with Pastor Mike Sage officiating. Graveside services will be held Friday, March 19, 2021 at 11 a.m. at Rose Lawn Cemetery, 4410 Lee Highway, Marion Va. 24354.

My heart goes out to all of Jenny's family and friends. She was a great woman. In many ways Jenny was like another mom to me. I first knew her though her work and friendship with my mom. I still have some of gifts she gave me when I was a child. Then, I was lucky enough to work with her at Hardee's for several years. I loved getting her riled up and making her laugh. Most of all though, I will always remember what a good friend she was to my mom when my dad died. No one is ever really gone as long as we remember them. I know Jenny is remembered fondly by many.

Jenny will always have a special place in my heart. She was my first babysitter and up until her last days I spoke with her on Facebook. I am so sorry for your loss Ken and Jason!!

I am so sorry for your loss. Jenny was so down to earth, she had a way of making you feel like you was at home when she was working at Hardee's. My favorite memory of Jenny was when we worked together at Hardee's on a Saturday night. People would come in from clubbing and she would whistle real loud and tell everyone to quite down or she would make them leave. Everyone would quite down so she could take everybody's orders and they would just laugh and cut up with Jenny like they had known each other forever. I'm going to miss my friend.

Uncle Ken and Jason, I'm so sorry about Aunt Jenny passing away. She was a sweet loving person. I wanted so much to come to visit but I was just too afraid of bringing the Covid-19 into your home. Aunt Jenny has a new home and a new body where no sickness can touch her. God bless you Uncle Ken and Jason too.
