Cosette Mettam Obituary
December 26, 1920 - December 14, 2015 Cosette Mettam, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, died peacefully in her home on December 14, 2015. She was 12 days shy of her 95th birthday. She was born in Indiana on December 26, 1920 to Germaine Dubief Thrasher and George Thrasher. She attended Eagle Rock High School, graduating in 1938. In May 1941 she married Charles Mettam. They were married for 49 years before his death in July 1990. They lived in Solana Beach, California for the early years of their marriage, then in Norwalk, California for a brief time before settling in Culver City, California in the mid 1950s. They raised their three children, Charles Jr., Vickie and Rocky in the house that was filled with happy memories for these three children, 6 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren to come. Cosette worked for 20 years as a Human Resources Manager. She loved sewing and embroidery, making all her own dresses, and gifting most who knew her with some beautiful treasures. She loved meeting her friends on Sunday morning at McDonalds for coffee. She loved eating at Roll and Rye. She loved reading the LA Times from cover to cover. She loved doing word search puzzles. When she was still able, she loved walking her neighborhood and waving at neighbors. But most of all, she loved and treasured her family. Cosette was preceded in death by her husband, daughter and grandson, Richard Homel. She is survived by sons: Charles Jr. and Robert (wife Trisha), grandchildren: Gregory Homel, Christopher Homel, Stacy Dempsey, Lindsey Canizales and Lauren Small; and great-grandchildren: Decker, Laurel and Maryn Dempsey, Halle and Max Homel and Gavin, Diego and Mateo Canizales. Cosette cherished her Aunt Leone and Uncle Jack who helped raise her. Her family is deeply grateful to Jane, Leoni and neighbor Inga, who surrounded and cared for her daily in the last years of her life. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her and loved her and will be remembered for her positive attitude and unconditional love and friendship.
