Dorothy “Ann” Cook, 65, of Circleville, died on Monday, April 11, 2016, at Mayfair Village Retirement Center after a lengthy battle with lung cancer.
She was born on Aug. 19, 1950, in Circleville, to the late William Lindsey and Helen Pauline (Johnson) Cook.
Ann graduated from Circleville High School and worked for the State of Ohio for several years. Eventually she joined Berger Hospital in the registration department, where she was employed until her retirement.
She was an active EMT volunteer for many years and was very proud to serve her community. She took delight in her family, her garden, and all animals – especially her dogs. She will be remembered for her great sense of humor and her creative Halloween costumes.
