After retiring, she was a long time resident of Crockett and Abilene. At the time of her death, she was a member of the Wylie Church of Christ. She is preceded in death by her husband of 53 years – Eddie Cobb, her parents, and three sisters – Letha, Emma, and Jean. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Adria and Bernie Kastner of Abilene, Texas and her son and daughter-in-law Darrell and Sally Cobb of Houston, Texas. She is survived by two sisters – Wrenva Potts of Austin, and Billie Daniel of Flippin, Arkansas; four grandchildren – Cory, David, Kendra, and Kristen, and one great grandchild – Sladen (age 9 days), and numerous nieces and nephews. The family would like to express appreciation to Vida Redell and her family for their thoughtfulness and willingness to go so far beyond the call of duty. We would also like to express our appreciation to the Hendrick Medical Center; especially the 3rd and 6th floors and the Hospice Unit for their excellent and compassionate care for Tommie and for her family.
