Mrs. Cobb is remembered for her fierce devotion and love for family and friends, her selflessness, and her genuine care and interest in helping others. She enjoyed music, painting and cooking but her favorite times were those spent in the company of her loving family. She was the devoted wife of Dr. William E. Cobb, loving mother of Scott Stirling and his spouse Kelli of Quincy, Wendy Deane and her spouse John of Canton, step mother to Alicia Meyers and her spouse Leslie of Cold Springs N.Y., and Monica Bautista and her spouse Jesse of Roseville, Calif. Dear sister of Bob Craig and spouse Pam of Quincy, Jeff Craig and spouse Marcia of Quincy and Steve Craig and spouse Dotty of Truro. Cherished grandmother to Nicholas, Seamus, Katie, Megan, Isabelle, Jack and Will. Also survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and many close friends.
