Carole Sue Cockrell
Chillicothe - Carole Sue Cockrell, 75, of Chillicothe, died of natural causes at 9:58 a.m. Tuesday, June 29, 2021 at her residence in Hopeton Terrace.
She was born October 28, 1945, in Portsmouth, Ohio, the eldest daughter to the late Chester Carl and Maxine D. Wilburn Cockrell.
Surviving her are her brother, Thomas Martin (Cheryl) Cockrell, of Upper Arlington, her sister, Claire (Timothy) Grasso, of Santa Maria, CA, two nieces and three nephews. She was predeceased by her brother, Timothy Lloyd Cockrell.
Carole attended Ohio University and worked briefly for the city of Portsmouth, Ohio and the State of Ohio in various positions. She was a brilliant, gentle soul who was overwhelmed by, and sometimes abused by, a hardened world that could not understand her. Still, her goodness endures. May she find in heaven the peace and rest she seldom had in life. Her family and friends will miss her.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Ware Funeral Home, Chillicothe, OH. Private burial will be at Sunset Memorial Gardens, Franklin Furnace, OH at a later date.
