May 24, 1942 ~ December 26, 2011
Geraldine "Cookie" Lecas, age 69, passed away on December 26, 2011 after a debilitating battle with cancer. Cookie was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Geraldine Zaballa; brother, Robert Zaballa Jr. and husband, John Lecas. She is survived by her long-time companion, Joe Fantozzi; best friend Candy Peyton Diaz; sister-in-law, Janet Zaballa; nieces Michelle Zaballa, Renee (Adam) Hasler and Debbie (Terry) McNeely. She also leaves behind her precious puppies Jack and Maddie. Cookie was born on May 24, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois but has resided in Canyon Lake, Texas for over 35 years. She had been involved with a number of businesses but is best known and fondly remembered as the owner of the Sundowner Bar and Grill. Although she had no children of her own, she had been a mother-like figure to many. She was always ready and willing to help those that needed it without hesitation. Cookie was not only a beautiful woman on the outside but on the inside as well, one who loved the ocean, water sports, fishing, painting ceramics and playing cards. This vibrant woman who loved life will be greatly missed by family and friends. Cookie will live on in our hearts forever. A memorial gathering will take place at 1:00 PM on January 7, 2012 at the CRRC. The address is 125 Mabel Jones Dr. just below the dam in Canyon Lake, TX. Attendees are invited to share photos and memories of Cookie. Memorial donations can be made to Hope Hospice at 611 N. Walnut New Braunfels, TX 78130.
