Cochran, Jessie Mae Hendrix

Lifelong North Georgia Resident Loved Playing Bingo

Monday, June 11, 2018

Jessie Mae Hendrix Cochran, 88, of Rossville, was called home for an early birthday celebration by her Lord and Savior on Saturday, June 9, 2018.

She was a lifelong resident of the North Georgia area and was a faithful member of People’s Baptist Church. She was previously employed with Cutters Laboratory for several years and loved playing Bingo, to such an extreme that most of her friends eventually just started calling her “Bingo.”  She loved playing scrabble, being with friends and family and was affectionately known as the “neighborhood mother” - it didn’t matter if you were her child or not, she treated you as one of her own and would always put others needs first. She was a true patriot, red, white and blue were her colors and she was proud of her country and the men and women that fought for our freedom. She was a loving and devoted sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who will truly be missed by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Lawrence Paul Cochran; son, Sgt. Wesley Cochran; daughter, Gail Veal; and grandson, Jeff Veal.

Survivors include her children, Roddy (Nancy) Cochran; Carmen Pitts and Bunny (Ray) Blankenship; sister, Helen Whitt; 10 grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; several great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 13 in the Fort Oglethorpe Chapel, with Pastor Richard Foster officiating. Burial will follow in the Chattanooga National Cemetery. The family will receive friends after 3 p.m. on Tuesday and prior to the service on Wednesday at the funeral home.
