Wichita Falls, TX

Heaven gained another Cowboys fan when angels took Anna Lucille Wood Dowell home on Friday, March 1, 2024, to Jesus and the land of milk and honey. She joins her husband, family, and friends who proceeded her. The bowling pins were probably already racked to pick up where they left off. Anna was born on October 7, 1934 in Holliday, TX to George B. and Marion S. Wood. She grew up in the Holliday and Valley View areas in Texas and graduated from Valley View High School in May 1953. She met and married the anchor of her heart, Eldon S. Dowell, on April 25, 1953. They were married a golden 57 years before Eldon’s passing in 2010. Anna's unwavering devotion to her family was matched only by her lifelong passion for the Hawks, Cowboys, and Texas Rangers. Whether cheering on her favorite teams or attending every game, concert, or event in which her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren participated in, Anna's presence was a constant source of love and support. She was a multi-talented individual, delving into crafts, baking, cooking, sewing, painting, jewelry making, and anything else that caught her interest. Her paintings adorn homes across the United States, a testament to her creativity and skill. For over five decades, she enjoyed bowling, but it was the camaraderie with her bowling friends that she treasured most. Her love for sports and literature remained steadfast throughout her life, always keeping a stack of books close at hand. Anna was preceded in death by her husband, parents and siblings George Wood, Marian Gregg, Kathleen Shook, Bettie Bradberry, Lillian Lou Campbell. She is survived by her children, Donald B. Dowell and wife Sharon of Wellston, OK, Cheryl L. Campbell and fiancé Ed Davidson of Iowa Park, TX, and Laura B. Geary and husband Tim of Belton, MO, her grandchildren, Stephen Dowell of Arlington, TN, Kaitlynne Dowell of Southaven, MS, Austin Dowell of Franklin, TN, Dustan Wahl and wife Sheryl of Wichita Falls, TX, Scott Campbell of Wichita Falls, TX, Michelle Pierce and husband Zach of Leawood, KS, and James Geary of Belton, MO, and her great-grandchildren, Hannah Wahl of Petrolia, TX, and Caden Wahl of Petrolia, TX. She is also survived by her siblings, John A. Wood, Billy Lloyd Wood, and Susie Beisch all of Wichita Falls, TX, and Carolyn Smith of Canton, GA, and numerous nieces and nephews. The family would like to express their deep appreciation for the exceptional care, support, and love from the staff and volunteers at The Elison at Lake Wellington Assisted Living, The House of Hope and Hospice of Wichita Falls for the last few years. The family would also like to ask that in lieu of flowers, memorials be sent to the Iowa Park Friendly Door Senior Citizen Center on 810 N 3rd, Iowa Park, TX, 76367 or the Tom Burnett Memorial Library on 400 W Alameda, Iowa Park TX, 76367.

Lynn Ray Jirl Cook

Mar 10, 1930 - Feb 28, 2024

location-icon

Wichita Falls, TX

Lynn Ray Jirl Cook was a man of great love, steadfastness, and laughter. He was born on March 10, 1930, and passed away peacefully on the morning of February 28, 2024. Jirl was born on a sharecropper farm near Lake Wichita, Texas, to Huey Allen Cook and LaVada Leona Fancher. He lived most of his life in Wichita Falls and Montague County. He was born into a large family known for their singing voices. He was the last boy born and the ninth of ten children. His parents, older brothers (Clovis, Leo, and Aubrey), and sisters (Novelle, Nita, Estelline, Johnnie, Autrey, and Delle) have gone before him in death. Jirl served in the Navy for two years before being honorably discharged and meeting the love of his life, Betty Mathews. They married on June 27, 1952, and enjoyed a wonderful life together for 72 years. They had four children—Monty, Brent, Jeffrey, and Jamye. Jirl was a grandfather to ten grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. For most of his career, Jirl worked at Humphrey Printing. He also served at the Western Christian Foundation as manager and then as president on their Board of Directors. Jirl loved sports. He coached YMCA Little League baseball and Boys Club football for eight-to-ten-year-olds. He did this for 16 years, winning several sportsmanship awards and three Toy Bowls. He never once had a losing record. Jirl felt most at home being out in the country with nature. Throughout his life, he'd take yearly trips to Bennett Springs for trout fishing and to Colorado for camping. At home, he and his wife would often sit on their back patio, drink coffee, and watch the wildlife. Every year, Jirl planted a vegetable garden and enjoyed bumper crops of potatoes, squash, and his favorite 1015Y onions. Faith was an important part of Jirl's life, and he was a steadfast follower of Jesus Christ. He was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ where he served as treasurer, song leader, and leader. On any given Sunday and Wednesday, you'd find him faithfully attending services and caring for those in need. For Jirl, church and family were always interconnected. Jirl was the type of man you’d meet and instantly love, especially when he gave you that unforgettable wink. He had big laughs, gave big hugs, and lit up every room he walked in. Jirl modeled unconditional love throughout his life and will be so dearly missed. He is survived by his wife of 72 years, Betty Cook, his four children, Monty Cook of Dallas, Texas, Brent Cook of Hickory Creek, Texas, Jeffrey Cook of Bangkok, Thailand, and Jamye Coffman of Aledo, Texas, as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His memorial service will be held at Lunn’s Colonial Funeral Home on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at 2:00 PM. The family would like to thank Hospice of Wichita Falls for their tender care of Jirl during his final days. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to Hospice.
