Betty Melisa Cochran went to be with our Lord on June 20, 2021 at the age of 63, at her home in Mesa, Az. She lived in Globe, Az. for many years, where she worked for the City of Globe at Besh Ba Gowah Museum for 16 years. She loved her work and all of the wonderful people that she met there. Her favorite places to go and eat in Globe were La Casita Cafe in downtown Globe and J & R’s El Rey. All of the girls there always knew what she liked and had her table waiting. She leaves behind one daughter, Courtney Stricherz; her father James Stricherz; one brother, Larry Guerin; sister-in-law Tamara (Tammy) Guerin; one cousin, Rhonda Yamane, and her husband Eric Yamane; nieces Valerie Baum and Fallon Baum; and one uncle, Charles (Chuck) Russell, and his wife Faye Russell. She is preceded in death by her parents Richard and Barbara Russell and her brother Timothy Guerin. A private Celebration of Life is being planned by the family.
