Dorothy Broadhead Cook

September 1, 2010
Funeral for Dorothy Broadhead Cook, 89, of Hartselle was Sun., Sept. 5, at 1:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Hartselle with Dr. Jeff Redmond officiating and Peck Funeral Home directing.
A graveside service followed at 4 p.m. at Elmwood Cemetery in Birmingham.
Mrs. Cook died Wed.,  Sept. 1, 2010, at Decatur General Hospital after a prolonged illness. She was born Sept. 19, 1920, in Jefferson County to Walter Franklin “Bill” Broadhead  and Hilda Klinner Broad-head.  She graduated from Phillips High School in Birmingham, attended Arlington Hall School for Girls in Arlington, VA. and graduated from the Univer-sity of Alabama where she majored in English and minored in French. She was a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority and was active in the dramatics society, the Blackfriars.
She served on the congressional staff of Alabama’s Representative to the 78th Congress, John Parks New-some, and then returned home to work in her father’s company, Broadhead Furn-iture Company in Birming-ham. She lived briefly in Painesville, Ohio, with her first husband, George Mitchell Hyde, where she was a buyer for a major department store. She returned again to Alabama where she met and married her second husband, Charles Edward Cook.
During her work in her father’s store, she grew to love the furniture business and became very knowledgeable in merchandise and operations. In 1958, she and Ed Cook opened Broadhead-Cook Furniture Company in Hartselle and later opened two other stores in Decatur. After her husband’s death, she continued to operate the Hartselle store until her illness.
She is survived by a daughter, Joyce Cook-Jackson and son-in-law,  Keith Jackson, and grandson, Daniel Broadhead Jackson, all of Austin, Tex.; a son, Walter Broadhead “Bill” Hyde and daughter-in-law, Marjorie Ann Seabourn of Frisco, Colo.; and numerous cousins and other relatives of the Broadhead and Klinner families.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to the Humane Society of the U.S. and the World Wildlife Fund.
