Mrs cook never taught me during my time at OLOP..but she did have a few of my friends and I make the little graduation hats for the sk going into grade one..it was just a nice break out of class :)...and and she treated us so well that you would anything for mrs cook. As the years went by I learned that she became a kindergarden teacher and when it was time for my son (who had some challenges) was ready for jk I had my heart set in Mrs.cook being his teacher and during the enrollment night in jan of 2017..we talked and laughed (with her contagious laugh) until they were kicking us out of the school. Unfortunately mrs.cook didnt return when my son was suppose to start jk that year and I was so worried for her and saddened (his current teacher is WONDERFUL) I always had her in my prayers and we send our deepest condolences to her family from the OREILLY-GARCIA

Our deepest and sincerest condolences to her family and friends. We have had the pleasure of our children being taught by Mrs Cook. She always had a smile that lit up the darkest cloud's. Mrs Cook motivated, enlightened, and encouraged the children she taught. Even when she was no longer their teacher. Children would always go back to OLP just to visit her. She truly cared about the children and they truly cared about her. As parents we just want to say THANK YOU Mrs Cook for all that you have done for our children. We wish there were more like you, but you are truly one of a kind. Our memories of you will forever be charished in our hearts. You will forever be loved and missed by the Robinson family.

Donna was my second grade teacher at Our Lady of Peace. She was my BY FAR my favourite teacher I've ever had. I will always remember her fondly. She was such a warm, kind, gentle and fun person. She inspired me to become a teacher myself. I'm so sad to hear of her passing.
