Blesilda F. Cooke, affectionately known as “Blessie”, peacefully transitioned from labor to reward on Thursday, July 15, 2021, after a courageous battle with breast cancer.  Her earthly journey began on May 28, 1963, daughter of Jose and Herminia Fallesgon.

Blessie was the Pastor and founder of Operation Grace, which provided outreach ministries under Grace International Ministry.  She was also the pastor of Morning Star Baptist Church, Williamsburg, Virginia.  She loved Jesus and had an unwavering faith in her Lord, until the end.  She will be greatly missed by all whom she ministered to and that knew her.

Her precious memories will forever remain in the hearts of her two sons, David and Jeremy; daughter, Mellissa; grandchildren, Brandon, Sophia, and Grayson; two brothers, two sisters, a host of nieces, nephews, other loving family, and friends.
