PORT RICHEY, Fla. — Pamela Kay Deremer Cook, an outstanding registered nurse, an exquisite pianist and a devoted mother of three, died on April 23, 2009, surrounded by her family pictures and most treasured mementos. She was 59 and lived in Port Richey.

Excelling in what was always a life dream of hers, Pamela became the first in her family to obtain a college degree. Ms. Cook led the way in pioneering more effective ways to provide excellent nursing care to her many patients and quickly became a valued asset of the hospital team. She had two children, which she lovingly referred to as “her girls, Rarry and Umpy.” She eventually left her career to become a full time stay at home Mom.

“Pammie” was born on March 20, 1950, in Cumberland, Md. She witnessed the rise of civil rights, the Beatles on Ed Sullivan and the turn of a century. She often said that “to be born in the 50’s was really amazing.” To her many friends and family, she was known mostly for her infectious sense of humor and her unconditional love. She cared for everyone and sacrificed her own needs to ensure that theirs were met. Living a humble life, she was rich in love.

She is survived by her two children, Sarah Cook-Morgan, 24, of New York, N.Y., and Kaitlin Cook, 21, of Port Richey; as well as two grandchildren, Isabel Morgan, six, and Jackson Morgan, eight months.

Mom – we’ll miss you forever and love you eternally. (The kids will always know their Nana.)
