Obituary

Eloise Cochran Shirley, age 88 of Cornelia, passed away on Monday, May 20, 2019.

Born in Banks County, Georgia on August 2, 1930 to the late William Otha and Maybell Carter Cochran. Mrs. Shirley was a homemaker and member of B.C. Grant Baptist Church. She enjoyed her flower and vegetable gardens, crocheting, knitting, and spending time with family. Aside from being an avid gardener and valued member of the community, she was also an example to family and friends. She taught us to be happy with what we have, that it doesn’t matter what others think, to always take the high road, to turn the other cheek, and that if you can’t say anything nice – don’t say anything at all. She believed that God’s plan is always the best plan. She will be missed.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by sisters, Joann Cochran and Margaret Maney; brothers, W.O. Cochran, Theron Cochran, Wilton Cochran and Bobby Cochran.

Surviving are her husband, James A. Shirley of Cornelia; sons and daughter-in-law, J. Michael & Donna Dill Shirley of Cornelia and Jeff Shirley of Cornelia; grandchildren and spouses, Marisa & Stan Whittington, Rachelle & Ricky Woodruff; great-grandchildren, Maley Whittington, Zeke Whittington, Riya Woodruff, Ryte Woodruff, and Rennon Woodruff; brothers, Harold Cochran of Ringold, Swayne Cochran of Lula, Jewell Cochran of Ringold; sisters, Evelyn Herrin of Cornelia, Laverne Walls of Greenville, South Carolina, B.J. Bohler of Suwanee; several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services are scheduled for 3 pm, Thursday, May 23, 2019 in the Chapel of McGahee-Griffin and Stewart with Rev. Daniel Parker and Rev. Swayne Cochran officiating. Interment will follow in Yonah Memorial Gardens.

The family will receive friends from 1:30 pm until the service hour on Thursday at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to B.C. Grant Baptist Church, Shoebox Ministry, 1405 BC Grant Road, Alto, GA 30510.

An online guest register is available and may be viewed at www.mcgaheegriffinandstewart.com

I was saddened to hear about "Mama Shirley" passing away. I remember her mainly as the mom of my friends Jeff and Michael. She was one of those wonderful "Band Moms" way back in th day, and was one of the best. I know that my mother appreciated her friendship. A wonderful woman and I know she will be missed greatly.

We are so sorry for the family's loss. I will always remember happy times with Aunt Eloise when my sister and I came to Georgia. She was a great lady and a great example to all of us. She will be sorely missed.

Shirley family, I am deeply saddened to hear about the recent loss of Mamaw. When thinking of childhood memories of growing up with Marisa and Rachelle, memories of Mamaw are always included. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. Much love, Lisa Shelnutt
