Daisy "Ollie" Cook Cox

May 24, 1949 ~ March 21, 2021 (age 71)


Daisy "Ollie" Ve Cook Cox entered her heavenly home on March 21, 2021
surrounded by her loving family during a brief stay at Life Care Center
Rehab facility in Banner Elk, NC.   She was a talented seamstress and
worked for a number of years at Banner Elk Glove, after it closed she
spent the remainder of her years as a Homemaker looking after her
family.    Ollie was born to Jess Maloye Cook, and Louise Jaynes in
Banner Elk, NC on May 24, 1949 in Avery County.  She attended
Minneapolis Elementary School, and was a graduate of Cranberry High
School. Later in life she attended Mayland Community College.  She was
happily married to her devoted husband Dallas for 48 years.  She enjoyed
sewing, crocheting, gardening, and pretty much any shenanigans her
beloved children talked her into. Anyone that knew her, also knew her
love for kitties, and she was preceded in death by her beloved companion
Wickers at the age of 19 along with her other "babies" Daisy, Patches,
Ling-Ling & Suzy.  Ollie was one of a kind; doctors would chuckle when
shown pictures of her riding side by sides in the woods or sitting in a
backhoe, and the nurses would laugh when she would be watching drag
racing (particularly Street Out Laws: Memphis) or Smokey and the Bandit
when they came into her room.  She was proud of her Appalachian
heritage, and every part of her radiated the quiet strength that are the
essence of a mountain woman's beauty.   Most importantly, her legacy
will always be the love she poured into her family, friends, and loved
ones. She was preceded in death by her mother and father. Left to
cherish her memory are her husband Dallas, son Frederick Wayne
Carpenter, daughter Ashley Jessica Cook, and  a very special friend her
"Little buddy" Jay Erskine Leutze.  A host of nieces, nephews, cousins,
and friends also survive.    Her family would also like to thank the
Life Care Center of America for their excellent care for Ollie.  The
family has opted for private services to honor her wishes, and
respectfully request in lieu of flowers that you donate in her honor to
the Dementia Society of America either by mail to PO Box 600,
Doylestown, PA 18901, or online at
