HOMER - Mildred Aaron Cochran, 85, went home to be with our Lord on Friday, September 9, 2011, at her residence.
She was born in Banks County, on November 3, 1925, the daughter of the late Albert and Gladys Satterfield Aaron. She was preceded in death by her husband, Julian Addy Cochran; son, Phillip Q. Cochran; and brothers, Clyde and Boyd Aaron. She was a graduate of Banks County High School and was employed by Coats and Clarks Thread Mill for several years and Carwood Manufacturing Company. Mrs. Cochran was a food service technician and the manager, as well as a cook for Grady School Lunchroom for several years until it closed. Everyone said she and Mrs. Wansa Purcell made the best rolls around. Later in life she came home, raised chickens, had a cattle farm, and was also a poll worker for Banks County Elections for a number of years.
Mrs. Cochran was a member of Damascus Baptist Church and the Joy Sunday School class. Her hobbies were helping in church as long as she was able. She loved her church so very much. She was also a member of the Banks County AARP. Mrs. Cochran loved to cook, make quilts and crochet. After she became ill, Mrs. Lucilla Bell would call her and tell her it was time to crochet.
Thanks to the Hospice nurses who were so good to her and also thanks to Big Daddy.
