In memory of
Betty Eileen Cochren
On Monday, Dec 28, 2020, Betty Cochren passed away peacefully in Corona, CA, at the age of 95. Moving to CA in 1955, Betty lived in Fullerton for 18 years, Anaheim for 43 years in the same home, and the past 4 1/2 years in Corona. Betty was born in the small town of Cowden, Illinois on an 80 acre family farm, surrounded by her large extended family. Although being raised during the Great Depression, she always said her family was lucky because they were self-sufficient, able to harvest their own food. As a child, Betty especially enjoyed tending to her ducks and chickens, and playing with her cousins outdoors. Education and learning were important to Betty. She returned to college in her 30's, graduating from Fullerton Junior College with an Associate of Arts degree, then transferring to Cal State Fullerton earning her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration in 1974. Often the oldest in her class, she was a wonderful role model, always available to help her classmates. Betty was a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society. She worked for many years as an office manager in the Fullerton area. During Betty's retirement years, she was an active member of the Yorba Linda Senior Citizens Club. She enjoyed all the leisure activities and making new friendships. She especially loved her line dancing classes, dressing up in her western outfit with matching pair of boots. Being a lifelong card player, she liked playing bridge and pinochle at the center, and especially liked winning. She even taught her grandkids to play rummy as soon as they could hold their own cards. Betty was the matriarch of our family, always offering words of encouragement, and displaying a strong, independent character. Her strong Christian faith gave her much comfort. She is survived by her daughter Linda Anderson (Paul) of Corona, daughter Vicky Till (Woody) of Amboy, WA; grandchildren Melissa Anderson of San Diego, Tim Anderson (Heather) of Corona, Bryan Till (Kathy) of Amboy, WA; great grandchildren Jordan and Taylor Anderson of Corona, and Jonas and Rebekah Till of Amboy, WA. Betty was predeceased by her husband Fay Cochren and her two beloved dachshunds, Tina Marie and Spencer. The family would like to thank Unicare Hospice for their care and support, and also her caregivers at Inspirations Home Care for their dedication and love of our Mother. Due to COVID, funeral services will be private.
