Chloe Blanche (Persinger) Cobb

Chloe Blanche Cobb was born in Gentry County, Missouri, on March 18, 1893, to John F. Persinger and Sylvia (Burdsell) Persinger. At the age of 13 she moved to Hitchcock County with her family and lived in this vicinity the rest of her life.

She married James Lewellyn Cobb on March 19, 1912, in Hitchcock County where they lived and farmed for many years. To this union were born two children, Dorman Cobb and Velma Cobb Holmes.

She was a devoted wife and a very kind and loving mother and grandmother. She enjoyed gardening and flowers. Also she enjoyed sewing, doing fancy work and making quilts and reading. She was a member of the Methodist Church for more than 63 years and was an active member of the Women's Society of the church.

In 1962, Lou and Chloe celebrated their Golden Anniversary with a party in Stratton. They celebrated their 69th anniversary before Lou's death. After the passing of her husband, Chloe went to live with her children for a short time. Because of poor health she moved into El Dorado Manor in Trenton. She lived there for two years and four months. She became ill and passed away in the McCook Community Hospital on May 27, 1984.

Survivors are Dorman Cobb of Trenton and Velma Holmes of Derby, Kansas; three grandchildren, Joan Cobb, of Trenton, Bob Holmes of Salina, Kansas and Jeannie McDonald, of Derby, Kansas; three sisters, Ellen Odell, of McCook, Neva Harter, of Wichita, Kansas and Zella Hidy, of Stratton; seven great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild; and several nieces and nephews.

Those preceding her in death were her parents, one sister, three brothers, her husband, a daughter-in-law, one grandson, one granddaughter and one great-grandson.

Services were held on Tuesday, May 29. Rev. Dale Coates conducted the service in the United Methodist Church of Stratton.

Marie Kleinschmidt played the organ as the quartette, Daniel Rife, Richard Stahly, Wallace Gummere and Arthur Hawkinson, sang "I've Found A Friend" and "How Great Thou Art."

Bearers were Harold Baker, Victor Kisela, Richard Pierce, LA. Barnett, Bert Latta and Walter Pollman, Jr.
