It is with broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of Winnifred Ann Eckert (Cook), on Aug. 13th, 2019, following a very brief battle with cancer. Winnie was born in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, lived many years in Brooks, Alberta, and recently moved to Red Deer, Alberta after living in London Ontario with her grandson, Mikey. Winnie is best known for her unconditional love for her grandchildren: Dierdre, Mikey, J.J., Anakin, Josh and Brody and her greatest pleasure was experiencing the wonders of the world during adventures and learning through their eyes. She found happiness through quilting, knitting, Tim Hortons (Small with 2 cream and a sour cream glazed donut), the sea air, volunteering with Victim Services, the silly antics of children, Cardinals and Hummingbirds, the smell of Carnations, the love of her family and her hometown province of Nova Scotia. Winnie will be remembered her quiet presence, beautiful quilts, ‘ugly’ sweaters, soft voice, kind eyes and love for children.
Winnie is pre-deceased by her parents: Merton Cook and Millie Cook (Vickery), her sister Margaret (Peggy), her spouse, Colin Eckert and her granddaughter, Tara-Jade Scarlett. She is survived by children: Elizabeth, and Daniel; her brothers Daniel (Muriel) and John (Holly) Cook; her sisters Susan (Doug), Angela (Jeff) as well as many cherished nieces, nephews, cousins, and other extended family. Donations can be made to a choice charity in lieu of flowers. Winnie will be brought to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

To the family
I was shocked and saddened to read this. So many school friends who over the years you loose track of. I also live in Alberta, not far from Red Deer but had no idea that Winnie was here. She was a classmate of mine at Hebron School, and I remember well a few times that we shared much love and laughter in those days.
Thinking of you all as you say goodbye and hope there are lots of great memories to carry you through

So sorry to here of Winnie's passing. Although we did not know her well it was very evident that she was a loving and devoted Mother and Grandmother and Great Grandmother. Winnie's memory is forever cherished and alive in all the beautiful moments shared with all those she held dearest. Our deepest condolences go out to you in this time of sorrow.
