Eckhout, Elizabeth “Libby” Cook. Libby was fortified with the Sacraments of the Holy Mother Church and on Nov. 11, 2018, went to her heavenly home after a five-year struggle with cancer.
She was the daughter of Elizabeth and the late Paul Cook. She is survived by brothers Paul (Linda), Mark and David (Sally); sisters Suzanne Pfeffer (Greg) and Carolyn Stack; dear aunt and great-aunt to Nick, Matt, Mary Elizabeth, Brett, Ryan, Katie, Andrew, Alex, Daniel, Amy, Ashley, Josh, Wyatt and Bernadette; friend and cousin to many.
Libby earned both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Missouri. As a CPA she had a distinguished career that expanded some 30 years.
