Brenda Cockerham, age 55, left this world the night of May 13th, 2014 after a courageous 11 year war with Ovarian Cancer. She was a beloved wife, mother, sister, and grandmother. She was born in Houston, TX at Heights Hospital, December 11th, 1958 and spent her childhood years in and around Nacogdoches, TX and Houston, TX. Although she lived many years suffering from the pain, she never let it take the life out of her. She continued to look after her husband, Butch, and guide her three children with her honest and wise advice. She thoroughly enjoyed spending time teaching and caring for her two grandchildren, Andrew and David. She spent her entire life devoted to caring for others. She began as a girl helping with her siblings, then moved into the medical field as a young woman, and then onto helping to teach and setup conferences for doctors at one of Houston's premier hospitals. She lived a very full life of loving and caring for others, all the while putting herself second to others. She will be deeply missed by her family and loved ones, but her daily pain and suffering has finally ceased. She is preceded in death by her father- Charles Mosley, mother- Louise Mosley, brother- Jerry Mosley, brother-in-law- David Cockerham, and father-in-law- John Young. She is survived by her husband- Butch Cockerham of Houston, TX, son- JR Cockerham of Houston, TX, two daughters Misty Williams and Priscilla Baugh with husband Cody Baugh of Spring, TX, two grandsons Andrew and David Williams of Spring, TX, eight brothers and sisters- Jimmy Mosley of Monterrey, CA, Patricia Mosley of Pasco, WA, Johnny Mosley of Spring, TX, Linda Mosley of Lake City, FL, James Mosley of Pinole, CA, Cynthia Mosley-Cleary of Pasco WA, Joe Mosley of Vacaville, CA, William Mosley of Spring, TX, mother-in-law Tessie Young of Houston, TX, brother-in-laws Donny Cockerham of Houston, TX and Maurice Cockerham of Spring, TX, numerous nieces, nephews, and many more relatives.
