Fredna was a thoughtful and caring woman and made friends for life. She was always ready to lend a hand. She had a positive impact on everyone she came in contact with, whether they were a friend, neighbor, or a professional. Fredna had a soft spot for strays, both 4 legged and 2 legged. She had more fun than most people and loved to laugh, especially if the joke was on her. She was full of memories and good stories, and loved to share those memories with others. She will be missed by all who came to know and love her.

Fredna was born August 29, 1932 in Bonham, Texas, and married the love of her life, John Cook. They lived a very happy life in the Oklahoma countryside until his death in 2013.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Bertie Hays; husband John Cook; and son Joe Stuart.

She is survived by son Robert Jackson of Denison; sister Sheila Brown and husband Dave of Sherman; daughter-in-law Becky Stuart of Cartwright, Oklahoma; step-son John David Cook and wife Shannon of Nederland, Colorado; step-daughters Laura and Jenny of Colorado; grandchildren Jesse Jackson of Pottsboro, Texas, Joseph Stuart of Cartwright, Oklahoma, Shaun, James, and Amanda Cook of Nederland, Colorado, Shauna and Barbara Bennett; and special friends Jose and Liz Ruiz.
