Mary Nell Cobb

She lived life to the fullest always willing to go wherever you were just to spend time with you. She loved camping, fishing, dancing to Country Western music, and was always ready to cheer on her Hogs, but most of all she loved being a mom, and Grandma, and being able to sit around with family and friends telling stories and having a good laugh. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Joe and Annie Raschke; one brother Paul Rashcke; two sisters Betty Jo Martin and Annie Belle Huckabee; two sons David and Doug Cobb; one special friend Herman Aaron.

She leaves behind one brother, J.D. Raschke and his wife Paula; one sister Burdie Burras of Dallas, TX; two daughters Kathy Cobb of Texarkana, TX and Kim Cobb and her wife Gabby of Texarkana, TX; two sons Duane Cobb of Hope and Kevin Cobb and his wife Audri of Hot Springs, AR; four grandsons Bobby, Jeremie, Jessie, and Allyn Cobb; one granddaughter Hayley Sherman and many great-grand kids.
