Marianne Robinson Cole, 67, of Edgemont, Arkansas, passed peacefully from this life April 4, 2023. She is survived by her husband, James Cole, Jr., daughter Tonya Cox (Brad), and granddaughters Ambria and Willow. Marianne served 27 years in the U. S. Air Force and retired as a First Sergeant.
At the time of her death, she was busy planning her dream home in Antioch, Arkansas on the property she grew up on. She and James decided to stay almost full time in Antioch to be near Tonya’s family two-plus years ago. She could usually be caught with her crochet needles and lots of yarn working on her latest creation. She often spoke of her joy when Ambria took an interest in her hobby. Marianne requested that she be cremated, and her ashes spread at one of her favorite spots.
Marianne will be missed by her cousin, Pam Pierron, and Picasso the cat who was hand fed by her after he was found alone after a storm.
A private memorial will be planned by the family at a later date. Cremation arrangements by Smith Westbrook Funeral Home, 404 W Dewitt Henry Drive, Beebe, Arkansas 72012. www.smithfamilycares.com
