CAROL COOKE Carol Louise Depew Cooke passed away April 24, 2018, after a brief illness. She was born August 30, 1929, in Knoxville, Tennessee.

She was proud to be a member of the Elizabethton High graduating class of 1947. Carol married Walter Cooke in 1949 and joined him in running a dry cleaning business. They later lived in Georgia and Florida, before settling in Las Vegas. In Las Vegas, Carol assisted in the family business Tiffany Cleaners and worked in the Social Services Department of Clark County. She is survived by her longtime friend, Lee Kiamar; son, Walter Stu Cooke; daughter, Louise Cooke Freiheit, and her husband, Steve; granddaughter, Jodi Freiheit; great-grandson, David Freiheit; three sisters; a brother; and many nieces and nephews.
