Aldine joined her one love Kenneth on Thursday following a brief illness. She is survived by their four children, Linda C. Kennedy (Dennis), Clayton; Anne C. Satterwhite (Thomas), Raleigh; Kenneth Charles Cooke, Jr., (Gail), Vienna, WV; L. Keith Cooke, Washington, DC; four grandchildren, Melissa Stockwell Cottrill, Gary Kennedy, Christopher Cooke and Scott Satterwhite; and one great grandson, James Stockwell. She was the daughter of Lumas T. and Vera Underwood Poole, and was predeceased by her brother, Thomas and her sister, Reba.
Our mother was always thoughtful and respectful of her family, friends, church and neighbors. Among her many abilities were expert seamstress, owner of the greenest thumbs proven by her beautiful houseplants, immaculate flowerbeds and yard, and saver of all things that might just be needed later. Before her retirement, she worked at Champion/ Sara Lee Products while raising children and working on the farm beside her husband. Each of her children and her grandchildren was her favorite one.
Flowers are appreciated or a gift is requested to the Johnston County Health and Hospice, 426 Hospice Road, Smithfield, NC 27577. Funeral service will be at 3:00p.m. Saturday at McLaurin Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Roger Hill officiating.
