Resthaven’s 2014
Good Shepherd Award Winners:
Rev. James I. & Jean Cook

Recently the Resthaven Board of Trustees named Jim and Jean Cook (posthumously) as Resthaven's 2014 Good Shepherd Award recipients. The award is given annually to an individual or couple who exhibit, in action and spirit, qualities that promote the well-being of older adults and support their care in a way "that demonstrates the love and compassion of Jesus Christ."

Dr. Cook was an active member of Resthaven's Board of Trustees from 2000-2006. He served as a professor at Western Theological Seminary and was widely recognized for his gifts of preaching, teaching, and writing. He passed away in May 2007.

Jean Cook served as a dedicated partner in ministry with Jim throughout their 56 years of marriage. She served in many leadership roles in the RCA denomination, her home churches, Hope College, and Western Seminary. She passed away in March 2014.

Both Jim and Jean Cook demonstrated their love for and care of seniors throughout their lives. In 2012, Resthaven dedicated its new chapel at the Care & Rehabilitation Center to the Cooks, naming it the James I. & Jean Cook Chapel. They were generous contributors of time and resources to Resthaven and its mission.

The Cooks truly were "good sheperds," living their lives to serve others.
