Eleanor R. Lane (Carlo) Cook

January 5, 1929 — July 30, 2018

Eleanor "Molly" Lane Cook age 89 died July 30, 2018 surrounded by her loved ones.

Eleanor was born January 5, 1929 in East Boston, Ma. to Nicholas and Rose Carlo. She was preceded in death by her son Robert Lane, both her husbands Samuel Lane and Chester Cook, 11 siblings, and her loving companion of 26 years, Charlie Keefe.

"Molly" was well known for her generosity and loving kindness to all those around her. She ran the Wayside Grill and Devencrest Restaurant for many years along with her husband, Chet Cook, who also ran the Monarch Diner and Polly's Restaurant. All those who had the opportunity to work alongside her, will attest to the fact of how hard she worked. She loved to do volunteer work from cooking for people to reading to Alzheimer's patients. She belonged to several clubs including the Elks and was a Chamber of commerce member.

When she was in her 50's she started taking dance lessons and went on to do several competitions. She retired in 1985 and began to explore the world. She experienced driving snowmobiles in Canada to riding camels in Egypt, taking pictures of the kangaroos in Australia and many more adventures. She also sailed on over 55 cruises to many parts of the world. She lived her life to her fullest potential and was an amazingly strong woman. She taught us all to look Adversity in the eye and stand straight to it. We will ALL dearly miss her.

She is survived by her family that she loved more than life itself. Her daughter Emma Lane, her son Thomas Lane and wife Dione, her daughter Sandra (Lane) Hendrick, her daughter Molly (Cook) Hollingswoth and husband David. Also left behind are 16 grandkids and 22 great grandkids and many others that love her.

Family and friends can gather to honor and remember Eleanor for visiting hours on Sunday August 5, 2018 from 2 PM until 5 PM at the Badger Funeral Home, 347 King Street, Littleton. Funeral services and burial will be private.

Memorial contributions may be made to Oregon Health and Science University in Portland Oregon, 1121 SW Salmon St., Suite #100, Portland, OR 97205 in the name of Benjamin Hendrick, her great grandson, who is being treated there for brain tumors
