Obituary for Anita Joan Cogswell

Anita Joan Cogswell, age 87, longtime Turk Lake resident, died Friday, February 22, 2019 at Twin Oaks Retirement Living in Gowen.  She was born August 30, 1931 in Alma, the daughter of Bernard and Mabel (Anderson) Wood, and graduated from Crystal High School.  Anita loved reading, gardening, knitting, and other crafts.  She lived at Turk Lake for over 50 years, and loved everything about the lake- the birds, ducks, swans, and nature.  She was a gifted baker, and everybody who grew up around Turk Lake fondly remembers her chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.  She was so very proud of her children and grandchildren.  Even as she battled dementia, she would repeatedly say “I have a really good family”.  It all started with Anita, a fact her family is so grateful for.  Anita was preceded in death by her daughter, Christina Cogswell; grandson, Corporal Mattias Hanson; and siblings, Eldon Wood and June Wood Lanford.  She is survived by her children, Sharee (Ron) Kenny, Nancy Brugger, Mary (Larry) Huff, Jennifer Harding, and Max (Lisa) Watts; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and other relatives and friends.  Funeral services will be held at 12:00 pm Thursday, February 28, 2019 at Hurst Funeral Home, Greenville, with visitation from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm prior to the funeral.  Rev. Donna Sperry, pastor of Turk Lake United Methodist Church, will serve as officiant.  Interment will be in East Montcalm Cemetery.  Memorial contributions may be given to Great Lakes Caring Hospice.
