Proud of East Texas: Cook Sisters


The Cook Sisters Trio: Emily, Texanna and Norma were only teenagers in the 1940's when they began entertaining throughout Texas at military camps and hospitals. They also had their own radio show on Dallas KGKO. 

The sisters live in East Texas now: 89-year-old Emily, at Holly Lake, and 87-year-old Texanna, at the Heritage in Quitman. Norma passed away in 2002. 

Even though the Cook Sisters no longer sing, their memories of long ago, when their music helped brighten the days of World War Two soldiers, are forever cherished.
