    Those desiring, memorials may be made to the Alzheimer's Foundation or to the American Cancer Society.
    She was born in White Bluff, TN and was the daughter of the late Elmer and Margie Fowler Cocke. She attended public schools and was a graduate of William James High School where she was salutatorian of her  class.  In her early years she worked in billing with the former Southern Bell Phone system.  She will be remembered as a loving, dedicated wife, mother, sister and grandmother.   Her family meant everything to her and she preferred to be home over anywhere else.  In her younger, healthier years, she loved to cook for her family and made the absolute best caramel cake from scratch. She was a hard worker and loved planting fresh flowers around the house.  Mrs. Duke was a longtime member of the White Bluff Church of Christ.
   She never missed an opportunity to tell you exactly what she thought, and her wit and stubborness will be greatly missed. Her boys were her world and the love and care they showed her up until her very last breath will forever be a testament of their love and admiration of her.
   Survivors include her husband of 68 years, Lee Duke, Jr. of Dickson,TN; her sons, Dale Duke and his wife, Martha of Dickson,TN, Danny Duke of Dickson,TN and David Duke of Dickson, TN; her four grandchildren, Andrea Duke Banks and her husband, Justin, Maria Duke Lastovka and her husband, Chad, Matthew Duke and Melissa Duke; her four great grandchildren, Audrey Banks, Kellan Banks, Ava Lastovka and Annie Lastovka; her sister, Ruby Nell Larkins of Maryville,TN. Several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by a son; Daryl Scott Duke.
   Casket bearers will be Dale Duke, Danny Duke, David Duke, Matthew Duke, Larry Cocke and Brian Larkins.
