STILLWATER - Jean Cook, 81, of Hudson Avenue, died peacefully in the comfort of her home on February 8, 2024, in the company of her loving family. Born in Tewkesbury, England on November 1, 1942, daughter of the late Frederick and Edna Kussius, her family immigrated to the United States when she was a young girl.

At home, she enjoyed planting flowers, her garden, and reading books about angels. She cherished the time she spent with her grandchildren and her 2PM Sunday dinners were something the family looked forward to.
