October 28, 1928 - April 19, 2021
WISE, VIRGINIA – Mary Cochran was born in Cliffield, Virginia, on October 28, 1928, and lived her 92+ years on this earth very simply, quietly, and peacefully. She left this earth in much the same manner on April 19, 2021. She spent her life loyally devoted to her family and was a school cafeteria manager for many years. Her joy could be found in surrounding herself with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, as well as tending to her huge flower garden and sewing in her younger years. She was preceded in death by her husband of over 50 years and love of her life, Frazier Joseph Cochran, her parents, Jack and Bess Brewster, her infant daughter, Linda Jean Cochran, her daughter, Dr. Lorraine Turner and her brother, Bob Brewster. She is survived by a daughter, Sue Kennedy of Wise, son-in-law, Ike Turner of Castlewood, and two grandchildren, Adam Kennedy and his wife Kathi of Bristol and Jessica Hood of Wise. She is also survived by four great grandchildren, Braxton and Loxleigh Hood, and Frazier and Nolan Kennedy. Also surviving is her brother, William (Bill) Plaster. The family would like to express the utmost appreciation for the staff at Norton Community In-house Rehab for helping strengthen, extend, and improve her life in the last eight years. We also want to thank the staff at both Intrepid Home Health and Norton Community Hospital, as well as her personal home aide Lisa Barnette for their care in her most recent months. Following the COVID-19 restrictions set forth by the Governor of Virginia on face-covering requirements and social distancing, a private service will be conducted and she will be laid to rest with her husband and daughter at Temple Hill Memorial Park in Castlewood, Virginia. Online condolences may be sent to the Cochran family through our website at www.castlewoodfuneralhome.com. Castlewood Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
