Obituary of Marcia Cochran

IN LOVING MEMORY OF MARCIA L. COCHRAN Marcia Lynn Cochran, 77, of Norton, Kansas passed away on Thursday, November 5, 2020, at the Andbe Home in Norton. Marcia was born in Norton, on May 6, 1943, to Lyle Walter and Helen Amelia (Belden) Cochran. She grew up northeast of Norton on the family farm and attended Dry Creek Rural Grade School. Marcia loved being on the farm, being outside and playing with the animals, especially her dogs and the pigs. After her father passed away, they sold the family farm and moved to town in 1971. After her mother passed away in 1993, she moved in with her sister, Geraldine. Marcia idolized her sister and enjoyed the time living with her, having Cokes in the afternoons, watching television together, and most importantly, and helping care for Geraldine when she was sick. Upon Geraldine's passing in 1994, Marcia found her new home at the Andbe Home. Marcia truly loved it there and considered it "her" home and let it be known in the family. The Andbe Home staff and residents were her extended special family. In her younger years, Marcia attended Grace and Glory Sunday School and the Trinity Episcopal Church. With her mom, she attended many meetings and socials with the Happy Homemakers, EHU and the Sunshine Club. Marcia wasn't afraid to let her opinion be known in her own special way. She always had a grin and loved hugs. She loved her stuffed animals holding on to them when she watched television or when she went to bed. Eagles and the American Flag were very important to Marcia and she loved that her family members were veterans so the 4th of July was her favorite holiday. She also loved praying hands. Marcia's favorite singer was Elvis Presley and she loved listening to his music and from time to time could be heard singing along. She spent many hours watching television and reading her TV Guide. Marcia loved her family and friends and could always be counted on to make them smile. Survivors include: her niece, Deborah (John) Lindenman, Morland; nephews, David Corns and Elvin Edgett, both of Norton; Michael Cochran and Carl Holmquist, both of Minnesota; great nieces, Stacie Minson, WaKeeney; Tamara (Roger) VanLoenen, Hill City; great nephews, Shawn (Melissa) Lindenman, Morland; Cory (Beth) Lindenman, Winfield; and Brent (Heather) Lindenman, Central City, Nebraska; five great-great-nephews and seven great-great-nieces; other relatives and many friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Geraldine Corns; brother, Lyle Walter Cochran; niece, Pamela (Corns) Edgett and her nephew, James Cochran. A Graveside service will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, November 7, 2020 at the Norton Cemetery. Memorials are suggested to the Andbe Home Resident Activities Fund in care of Enfield Funeral Home, Norton, Kansas. Condolences may be left at
