Shannon Nichole Cochran, 40 of Charleston passed away July 8, 2019. Shannon was taken from us way to soon; And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is gone," there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!" Shannon graduated from South Charleston High School and attended National Institute of Technology for Medical Assistant and studied to become an EMT. She worked at Health Plus and also for Corporate IHOP, traveling to various states which she loved. Shannon was a loving and caring mother who loved to sing karaoke, play in the creek and anything else that made her children happy. She was very passionate about her family and was a wonderful daughter and best friend to her brother Brandon. She had strength and beauty along with an infectious smile that could light up a room. She had a warm heart and put love into everything she did. She loved the beach, shopping, four wheeling, planting flowers and her favorite holiday was Halloween. Preceding her in death are her brother, Brandon Lee Means; father, Sherman Hobbs; grandparents, Grant Bledsoe and Tony and Mozella Carson. Left behind to cherish her memories, mother, Sherry E. Hobbs; daughter, Emma Jane Cochran; son, Solomon Grant Bennett; special aunt, Vicky Snodgrass; step-father, Ralph Means along with a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Sherry, Francis here. It's been nearly a week since Shannon's funeral and I've been thinking about her and you and how you've suffered for nearly the past year, suffered with the worst news a parent can face, that being the loss of children.
I've choosen two memories of your children which will, for me, come to mind when I think of them. In the first there was that day I hired Brandon to work with me at Michael's place on the river. Big and strong Brandon cutting and pilling up brush with me, Me, panting in the heat, and him in great spirits and chugging along untouched by sun so bright.
Ten years ago -- maybe fifteen?
Michael and I were at a loss for what to do for Thanksgiving that year. It was then that you invited us up the steps to your place for dinner and we accepted. It was a lively day with kids running about showing us their stuff and Shannon was there, pretty as a picture, wearing a yellowish dress with a small pattern. I sat beside her at the table and she made me laugh. There was talk about her riding off in my car. Uh oh! Laughs and fun time, a great Thanksgiving. We're each one of us sorry for you in this but this is how I knew them and how I will remember them.

I have missed you so much sweetheart! You were my best friend for so long and then you just disappeared. I've tried many times to find you just to tell you I loved you and missed you dearly. I'll never forget how many laughs and tears we've shared. We always had each other's back. I don't know where you went but I pray you got to give lots of kisses to those beautiful babies everyday and make lots of happy memories for them. God must have needed you more than we did babygirl. Rest In Peace My Beautiful Friend. You will never be forgotten! I love you Shannon!

From playing house, to sleepovers, then parties, Christmases, eating, which you loved to do lol and so much more. We have not only been cousin's but friends and I cherish every moment we have spent together. I love you and I miss you. I have so many memories that I'll carry with me a lifetime. Thank you for making my life a little brighter with your smile, a little warmer with your laughter and always a hug and so much love. Sherry, I don't have words to comfort you or ease your pain or even pretend to understand everything God has given you this last year but know you are not alone, we love you and are always here and are family. Shannon, you and B are Dancing In The Sky. I'll forever carry you both in my heart. Sending SO much love, and Prayers, I love you, your cousin Jewel 💚❤️💙💜
