The LORD is my strength and my defense ;

he has become my salvation.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 Peggy Sue Cook, a resident of Amite, LA, passed away on Wednesday, March 23, 2022 at her home. She was born April 5, 1954 in Bogalusa, LA and was 67 years of age. She was a member of Tangipahoa Baptist Church. She spent many years providing for others and always lending a hand. She never turned anyone away, if she didn’t have it to give she would find a way to help others if they needed it. She was the most selfless and kindest person you could ever meet. Everyone knew her as mawmaw Peggy or Momma Peggy. Anyone who knew her knew how much she loved her family. She taught us many lessons of strength and forgiveness. Her love and laughter will continue to encourage us every day. You will be truly missed. She is survived by her son, Michael Ogima, Sr.; daughter, Tessa Jarrell; 3 grandchildren, Kelsey Hilbun, Michael Ogima, Jr., and Shaneah Jarrell; 4 great-grandchildren, Aubrey Kent, Klayton Evans, Hannah Ogima, and Sophia Ridgedell; sister, Tammy Rayborn; and numerous nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by her husband, Michael Cook; son, Christopher Cook; parents, Steve Joseph Ogima and Lucille Winnie Grimes Ogima; 2 sisters, Patricia Lambert and Linda Spiers; and a brother, Steve “Bug” Ogima, Jr. A Memorial Service will be held on April 2, 2022 at 11:00AM at Tangipahoa Baptist Church. McKneely Funeral Home, Amite, in charge of arrangements. For an online guestbook, visit

I have been encouraging prayer for the war in Ukraine and for the people ,as many, especially those with children and elderly relatives, left the country. It has taken many people to help in Poland where most of the refugees have traveled. The refugees are traveling to other nations as well. Southern Baptists, through their Send Relief program, have been helping. Our son-in-law, Boyd Hatchel, will be working in Romania. Pray for him and all those he encounters in the coming weeks. May he be the “hands and feet” to many displaced refugees. Boyd served as a missionary in Romania for many years and is very familiar with the geography and the language. Pray for Boyd and others called to serve there. He is enroute now. Pray for family members who are at home during this time.

Let’s pray for the leadership to find ways to end the fighting in Ukraine.

Pray for others you have on your prayer list today.
