Wilma Novella Sullivan (Nichols) Hook

Mrs. Wilma Novella Sullivan (Nichols) Hook, age 97, passed to her new home, July 13, 2022.

The joy of her heart was her family, dear friends, and cooking for us all. Many years of farming taught her independence and love of land. Gardening was her love and she had quite a green thumb for it. Canning many things proudly displaying them by using them in her recipes.

She was a CNA in her late years for Area Agency and loved her little patients as they loved her and worked to make their life easier until the end.

Wilma, Momma, Grandma, Great-Grandma—she had many titles to us all but loved is what we all felt from her. Generosity was in her hands and everything she did until the end. She left a wonderful legacy for us to follow, yet a huge void in our family. We will have learn to live with. She loved her Lord and was a faithful prayer warrior throughout her life. She now resides in Heaven, no doubt, cooking up a storm, I’m sure.

Mrs. Hook is survived by her daughter; Sherri Echols and husband Roger; grandson, Jamie Hensley and Justina Buck, Sarah Roy and husband Frank, Rebecca Abbott and husband Frank; great-grandchildren, Seth Hensley, Ryan Hensley, Tylar Roy, Teagan Roy, Tristyn Roy, Jastin Abbott, and Grayson Abbott.

A memorial visitation is planned for Friday, July 22, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at Beasley-Wood Chapel in Mena, Arkansas.
