Nan McCulloh Cochran was born April 23, 1926 to the late John and Minnie Pearl McCulloh of Lee County, AL. She was preceded in death by her husband George Cochran; parents, John and Minnie Pearl McCulloh; and three sisters, Mattie Stephens, Hattie Murphy and Rhoda McCulloh.
Miss Nan, as she was known in the community, confessed Christ at an early age and joined the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the Reverend R.C. Gates. She worked faithfully as an usher, and a member of the Pastor’s Aide, the Nurses Guild, Mother’s Board, and other auxiliaries of the church.
Miss Nan attended McCulloh School through the 6th grade. She graduated from the Bronner Brothers School of Cosmetology, (Jackson Hill) Lanett, AL. After completing her cosmetology degree, she was a practicing beautician for over 40 years. Some of her favorite hobbies were gardening (she loved flowers), sewing, and fixing things around the house. Second only to God, and more than life itself, she loved her family with an unrelenting passion, especially her daughters, grand and great-grand children, and her sisters. (And, she was dearly loved by her family).
To cherish precious memories shared with her are two daughters, Emma (Richard) Gibson, Valley, AL and Myrtis Cochran, Richmond, CA; three grand children, Asha Gibson, Makis Gibson, and Mia Gibson, Valley, AL; two great-grand children, Savion Salter, Valley, AL and IaZariah Gilbert, Lanett, AL; three sisters, Elease Carter, Louis Walker, and Estella Davis, Valley, AL; one adopted daughter Susie Davis, Smith Station, AL; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
