Betty Jane Cochran Walker Obituary
Walker, Betty Jane Cochran

Betty Jane Cochran Walker, 56, died unexpectedly on June 2, 2013 in Cocoa, Florida. She was born March 7, 1957 in Ithaca, NY, spending her youth in Lansing. As a young adult, she served a stint at Patrick AFB in Cocoa Beach, Florida, a town she grew to love. In 1986, she returned to NY to raise her children alongside her beloved family, which includes all of her biological and "adopted" family and friends. In 2001, Betty returned to Florida where she spent her remaining years. Betty was an extremely talented, hardworking "handyperson" whom hundreds of people relied upon. The art she conveyed through her hands resulted in countless handmade gifts given to family and friends, and, no doubt, will continue to be cherished in her memory. She made a lasting impression everywhere she went. Betty is survived by her father, Dana, and adopted mother, Helen Campbell; sons Gregg and Eric; grandchildren Cameron, Gregg Jr. and Katelyn; brothers Steve, Mike, Dana, John and Rob; sisters Kathy, Shirl, Rose, Mary and Nan; numerous relatives; and best friend and soul-mate Kathy Barker. Predeceased by brother Lee. Words cannot express how badly she is missed. For memorial plans, call Rob at 607-339-9624.
