Ethyl Virginia Greener Cochrane, beloved mother, was born on March 15, 1920, in Hinckley the second child of Irene Smith and James "Tad" Greener. She had an older brother Jim, and two younger brothers Dick and Darrell and a younger sister Maureen.

She attended elementary school in Soldier Summit where her father worked for the railroad. When the railroad closed the depot, the family moved to Helper.

Virginia graduated from Carbon High School where she played flute for the marching band that went back to Washington D.C. and won the National High School Marching Band competition. She attended Stevens-Henager Business College in Salt Lake, then moved back to Helper and became a telephone operator.

She married James Cochrane and they spent their married life living in the coal towns of Sweets, Royal and Sunnyside. They had three sons, Jim, Bob and Carl who were active in all sports and traveled around with them to watch them participate in these events. During vacations and holidays, as a family, they loved to fish, hunt and camp with their many friends. While her boys were in school, Virginia volunteered in the schools and booster club helping raise funds, especially for the sports programs.

After Jim's death in 1978, Virginia moved to Price, where she spent the next twenty plus years traveling the world and acting as a tour guide in the Price Prehistoric Museum and the Railroad Museum in Helper.

Her sons, Jim (Saundra) and Bob (Everlinda), daughter-in-law, Teena, brother Darrell (Wilma), Sister-in-law Verlie, nine grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews survive Virginia.

Her husband, son, Carl, parents, brothers Jim and Dick and Sister Maureen preceded her in death.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Oct. 6 at Noon in the Mitchell Funeral Home where friends may call one hour prior to the services.
