Norma Sue Brunts, 78, came into this world and passed away in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Surrounded by her loving family, Sue left to be with the Lord on February 7, 2013, following a long battle with lung cancer. Norma Sue Cook was born in the city on May 4, 1934 to Theodore Roosevelt Cook and wife Amzie Bea (Ward) Cook, and was the second of ten siblings. For a change of scenery she moved to California, where she married and had her son, Terry. She moved back to Oklahoma City, living with parents to help with her siblings. Sue found a job with the Oklahoma City Police Department, which she loved dearly. Being secretary for six chiefs of police was her most recognizable role. Her most cherished moments were spending time with family, especially being a Granny, playing with the great grandchildren; Devin and Alyssa. She also greatly enjoyed traveling to California to see her brothers and their families. From the very start she has always been a caregiver, and devoted unselfishly every breath she had to others, even to the end. Being a loving sister meant the world to Sue, because family was all she needed to be happy. She was very strong willed, but yet with a soft spoken voice could bring words of encouragement to whomever she met. In her younger years she loved to go out on the town and dance the night away. Yet, with a humble heart and beauty from the inside out she was a brilliant woman, having a mind like a steel trap. Reading was her way of escape. She loved to read anything from a novel to the newspaper. After serving many wonderful years with the OCPD, she devoted a large portion of her life to the organizations for retired police officers. Her great-grandchildren were there to always brighten her days, no matter how she was feeling. She said they were her medicine for life. She was survived by son Donald Terry Brunts and wife Vicki Lea; grandchildren, Donald Corey Brunts and wife Robin Lee, Robyn Nicole Douglas and husband Nathan Todd; great-grandchildren, Devin Connor and Alyssa Grace Brunts; sisters, Beverly Joan "Jody" Wilkerson and Timmie Reni Turner; brother, Theodore "Ted" Roosevelt Cook Jr. and wife Diane; seven nieces, 10 nephews, 22 great-nieces, and 16 great-nephews. She was preceded in death by parents Theodore Roosevelt Cook and wife Amzie Bea; siblings, Betty Louise Bass, Bobby Gene Cook, Wallace Ray Cook, Larry Dean Cook, Kenneth Glen Cook, Vicky Lynn Sterling and nephew Leslie Adam Wilkerson. The family would like to send their appreciation to the Fraternal Order of Police, Retired Police Officers Association, and the Sheriff and Peace Officers Association. Her memorial service was held at the funeral home chapel on Monday, 11 February 2013, at 2:00 p.m., officiated by Chaplains Jack Poe, Dennis Frazier and M/Sgt Greg Giltner, all former or retired OCPD. Honorary pallbearers consisted of members from the OCPD Honor Guard.
