Mrs. Cochran was a wonderful woman, dearly loved by her family and friends. She was probably the first person I can remember giving me a perm. My mom went to her years ago to have her hair done and I know Eva Mae did my hair in the summers when I was a kid mom would have Eva Mae give us perms for the summer. I remember the one shop she had on Ohio Street. Eva Mae was good to my Mother Ruth Turner and also was friends and a good person to my Mother in law Rena Howard who lived at Stringtown, OK when Eva Mae did years ago. This was a good woman, warm and radiant. Well loved. Greatly missed.
