Darlene Cookson, wife of Glenn Cookson, mother to Debbie and Irene and former Elk County Treasurer,  passed away this morning at Wakeeny, Kansas. She had been suffering with dementia for several years and was in a nursing home at the time of her passing. Both of the girls and Glenn were by her side this past week when the family was told her time on earth was short. Glenn has moved in with Irene and Max, her husband, there in Wakeeny. Here is the address to send notes of condolences for the family. I know Glenn would absolutely love to hear from the people in Elk County, Kansas. Graveside services are set for April 20th, 2012 at 3 p.m. at the Veteran's Cemetery, Wakeeny, Ks.

I'm going out on a limb here, but my dear friend and a participant in the Elk Co Forum lost her husband last Friday.  Rhonda Signer McGown was raised in Howard, her father Don Signer was the Farm Bureau Agent for many years, and her mother's maiden name is Sue DeWitt.  Her brother Danny Signer has the auto repair shop in Howard. Rhonda graduated from West Elk High School and worked at Toot's, West's Food Market and the Elk County Farm Bureau Agency when Steve Kill was the agent. That's where I met her, and I've been blessed with a warm loving friend through thick & thin ever since. I just thought that those back in Elk County that think as much of her as I do would like to send their condolences. I didn't ask Rhonda's approval so I may be in trouble, but I think it's worth the risk. I talked to her yesterday and she's doing ok. Doug's illness came fast and he didn't have to suffer. She has the kids and her mom and her siblings with her this weekend.  Deb Garison

Bill Redmond, my dad, passed away this afternoon at the Dexter Care Center, where he had been a resident for a month. Funeral services are pending with Zimmerman Funeral Home, Howard, Ks. I just wanted the people of Howard to know that he had passed. Deb Garison
