Whitney Pier

It is with great sadness that we, the family of Summer, regret to announce that she unfortunately and suddenly passed away on Saturday, June 11, 2022, in Sydney.

Born August 24, 1999, in Simcoe, Ontario, Summer was the daughter of Bonnie Munro and Shawn Cook.

Besides her parents, Summer is survived by her son, Atlas; siblings, TJ, Douglas Perry and sister-in-law, Ariana Murray; as well as stepmom, Angelica Gee and stepsisters, Alexis Gee and Katie Gee.

Summer was predeceased by her nana, Vaunda; uncle, Jay and dear friend, Dwayne.

Summer was loved by so many more. Summer was known to be the most loving and high achiever, who always put others before herself. She was an animal lover and had many pets, including Spike, her bearded dragon and Kush, her dog.

Summer moved down to Cape Breton to start a new life for herself and her son. She fell in love with everything on the island, including the jellyfish that show up every year. She was attending a program at the YMCA to fulfill her passion for cooking. At the YMCA, Summer made many friends and had an amazing support team. She started working at A Better Bite Cafe & Catering in Sydney and was loved by all the staff. Summer will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her.

Celebration of life for the late Summer Diane Cook will be held at a later date.

Donations in memory of Summer may be made to Cape Breton Mental Health Services.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

‘May Her Soul Rest Peacefully in Eternity’
