BENNIE LEE COBB
Sister Bennie Lee Cob was born March 10, 1927 to the late Robert Faison and Pattie Lee Faison in Wewahitchka, Florida. She was the sixth child of eleven children: six boys and five girls. She is survived by one brother, Henry Phillip Faison (Annette)
Sister Cobb was added to the church in the early 1940’s. She was a member of North Westmoreland Church of Christ where she was a devoted Christian and tried her best to serve the Lord throughout her life.
She was married to Leroy Cobb, Sr. who was one of the founding members to establish the first black North Westmoreland Church of Christ. From that union, they had four children: Joann Johnson (Ashby), Leroy Cobb, Jr., now deceased, LeEtta Arnold (Sherman) and Patricia Inniss.
She was a devoted mother, grandmother of 7, great grandmother of 17 and great-great grandmother of 4.
Because Sister Cobb was so loving and kind to others, her grandchildren called her “Mama.” She was also given the name “Queen Bee” by some others who loved her dearly.
At the age of 90 she was presented the “GOLDEN NUGGET OF LIVING HISTORY” Award from the town of Eatonville, Florida where she resided. She was one of the
oldest citizens living in the town of Eatonville and was well loved by many!
