ROAN MOUNTAIN -- Thelma Cooke Heaton, 93, Laughlin HealthCare Center, Greeneville, died Friday after an extended illness.

Born in Banner Elk, N.C., she was a daughter of the late Robert Lee and Hattie Culver Cooke. She had resided in the Roan Mountain community since her marriage to her late husband, George W. Heaton, in 1937.

She was preceded in death by two brothers: Clyde and Harry Cooke, and one sister: Estelle Goforth, all of Banner Elk.

Mrs. Heaton was a life-long member of the Roan Mountain United Methodist Church, where she was the church pianist for more than 50 years.

She was a former music teacher in the Carter County School System, an accomplished artist, a devoted wife, mother and friend to all with whom she came in contact.
