Maxine Honeycutt Cochran went home to be with her Lord on August 4, 2019. She will be celebrating her 91st birthday in heaven on August 7th.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Farrel and Tressie Honeycutt; brother, Wade Honeycutt and wife, Polly and her niece, Vickie H. Tharpe.
She is survived by her beloved husband, Kenneth (Bud) Cochran; son, Steve (Teresa) of Harriman; brother, Wayne (Rena) Honeycutt of Ft. Oglethorpe, GA; nephew, Rick (Deborah) Honeycutt of Ringold, GA and a niece, Cheryl (Phil) Alsbrooks of Ringold, GA.
Maxine was raised in Oakdale, TN. After high school she started working at Halls Five and Dime in Harriman where she met the love of her life, “Bud”. He was a shy young man who followed Maxine around in the store, finally getting the nerve to ask her out on a date. Sixty-eight years later they are still in love and he still followed her wherever she went. They lived a true love story as part of God’s plan. Maxine was a life-long member of Piney Baptist Church in Oakdale. She is an inspiration to her church family and all who knew her because of her work ethic in the church and her working career. She worked 46 years at the Bell South Phone Company where she was known as the “Frame Dame” for her agility and quickness climbing ladders and making phone connections.
In lieu of flowers the family requests any donations be made to Piney Baptist Church, 345 Piney Church Rd., Oakdale, TN 37829.
The family will receive friends Wednesday, August 7, 2019 at Piney Baptist Church in Oakdale, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. with the funeral to follow at 3:00 p.m. with Bro. Jim Disney and Bro. David Tapp officiating. Interment will follow in the Piney Church Cemetery in Oakdale.
