Essex - On Friday, April 15, 2011 at 6:38 p.m., the wings of the angels gently carried away a very special lady, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt, best friend, confidant and Matriarch of the family, Evelyn Cobbs. She was never too busy to listen or help those who needed her. Her shoulders were big and her heart was even bigger. Evelyn was the beloved wife of Samuel Cobbs; endeared and forever loved mother to Sue Bergamy-Willinger, Jeffrey Kolb Sr., Timothy Kolb, Terry Kolb, Sr. and Marsha Kolb; forever cherished grandmother to Donald Bergamy Jr., Mark Bergamy, Christie Clements, Elizabeth Barrett, Terry Kolb Jr., Lisa Dance, Kimberly Kolb, Jeffrey Kolb Jr., Karen Krug, Holly Stabile, Kevin Kolb, Beau Shrewsbury, Jamie and Brian Shrewsbury. She is also survived by her cherished 22 great-grandchildren and beloved brothers John, Carl and Dennis Hurst, sister-in-law Pauline Hurst and forever loved nieces and nephews Fred Fearson Jr., Sharon Bayley, Michael Fearson, John Hurst Jr. and Debbie Hurst.
Her spirit, wisdom and footprints will forever live on in the lives of all who knew and loved her
