Betty Jane Cobb, of Eaton, OH, passed away September 5, 2021 at the age of 89. Born October 19, 1931 to the late Warren and Ina (Steele) Shillingburg in West Manchester, Ohio, she was a 1949 graduate of Monroe High School, where she was voted “May Queen” her senior year. Betty was preceded in death by her husband of sixty-four years, Jack L. Cobb in 2015. She was also preceded in death by her sister Esther Todd and brothers Leon, Carl, Dean, Dale and her twin, Bobby.

Betty was a devoted and loving wife and mother. Her family was her first priority always.
