Cecile Cobb Obituary

She was born on November 11, 1956, in Vivian, Louisiana to Cecil Donald and Goldie Beatrice Laney. She was a 1976 graduate of Ore City High School in Ore City, Texas.  She attended Tyler Junior College where she earned her associates in secretarial studies.

She married the love of her life, Lee Ray Cobb, on April 4, 1986. They shared many wonderful years together as husband and wife until his death on November 17, 2023.  He loved her beautiful blue eyes, kind heart and home cooking. She loved his strength, sense of humor and strong will.

Cecile retired from Wal-Mart after over 25 years of service. Customers always knew when she was working as her laugh could be heard throughout the photo/electronics department. She considered her co-workers family from the bond built through the chaos of working retail and shared many special friendships with them.

Cecile enjoyed bowling, a hot cup of morning coffee, time with family, every Hallmark movie ever made, and spreading laughter and cheer. She will be remembered for her southern home cooking, kind spirit and heart of gold.

She was proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who she loved watching run around and play. They brought great joy to her life.
