GREENVILLE – Thelma May (Fairbanks) Cochrane closed her beautiful eyes for the last time on Aug. 29, 2004, at a Greenville nursing home. Thelma was born on May 5, 1909, in Groveland, Mass., daughter of Charles and Delia (Knox) Fairbanks. She married her high school sweetheart in 1929 and spent most of her adult life as a wife, mother and homemaker while her husband worked as athletic director and coach at schools throughout New England. They lived at Avon Old Farms School in Avon, Conn., for 20 years. In the summer months Thelma helped with the Allagash canoe trip business established by her husband in 1953. After her children grew up, she worked at Sage-Allen department store in West Hartford, Conn. Upon her husband’s retirement in 1970, Thelma moved to her “house on the hill” in Greenville. Thelma will be remembered by all whose lives she touched for her warmth and affection, her wonderful smile and clear blue eyes, her delicious cooking and lovely home filled with the beauty that she brought to it. She was a talented artist and loved working with flowers and plants. Thelma is survived by her son, Warren Sr. and his wife, Linda, of Greenville; daughter, Viviane of Massachusetts; and grandchildren, Arthur Geetersloh Jr. and his wife, Susan, of Greenville, Lovercia, Priscilla Edwards, Warren Cochrane Jr. and his wife, Lani, of Carrabassett Valley, Tristan Cochrane of South Lake Tahoe, Calif., and Erik Cochrane and his wife, Sarah, of Greenville. She is also survived by five great-grandchildren. She was predeceased a few short weeks ago by her beloved husband, C. Herbert Cochrane. Thelma was also predeceased by her parents and four brothers and five sisters. There will be no service at this time, and a celebration of Thelma’s life will be held for family and friends at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the C.A. Dean Nursing Home, Greenville, ME 04441 or to the Alzheimer’s Association, 225 N. Michigan Ave., Suite 1700, Chicago, IL 60601. Arrangements by McCrory Funeral Home
