Winifred Cook, longtime resident of Toluca Lake, passed away at her home on Tuesday night of natural causes; she was 83. Winnie Cook, known affectionately by her family as Emi, was born in Philadelphia, PA. At the age of 15, she moved to the Los Angeles area with her parents and seven brothers and sisters.
