She was a devoted mother to their three children Mary, John, and Mark. Cotton was a homemaker, excellent cook, beautiful seamstress and later in life an active quilter.

She served on the Cody-Kilgore School Board and drove the school bus. After moving to Lincoln, she worked at Country Memories and was a member of the Lincoln Quilters Guild.

Cotton’s loving servant nature was shown through her actions such as cooking and crafting for others. Her thoughtfulness and generosity were how she showed her love the best. Her family’s Christmas trees are full of ornaments she made for them, and their tables are full of recipes she shared with them. She will be greatly missed by those who knew her.
