RIP Allene Roberts

Lauglin Service Funeral Home

Allene Roberts Cochran, 90, passed from this life into the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Thursday. Allene was a resident of Huntsville for nearly 55 years and was a member of Whitesburg Baptist Church for 35 years.

She enjoyed a brief, but satisfying career in Hollywood as an actress in the late 1940s and early 1950’s in several movies and TV series. She took pride in her career, but moreso in her career as a loving wife and mother.

A strong and dedicated Christian, Allene loved her Lord, her family and her church deeply, and she raised her four children to do the same. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 34 years, Ralph Graham Cochran.

Survivors include son, John Cochran (Kaye); daughters, Leslie Criss (Mike), Julie Cochran (Charles), and Laurie McGuffey (Bill); grandchildren, Amanda Utley (Brian), Kay Moore (Jacob), Scott Moody (Taylor), Johnny Cochran (Jessica), Allison McGuffey, Will McGuffey (Danna), Lauren McGuffey and McKenna Cochran; and great-grandchildren, Connor Moore, Carden Moore, Chase Utley, Carson Utley and Campbell Utley.

Visitation will be from 1 to 2 p.m. Monday, May 13 at Laughlin Service Funeral Home, with the funeral immediately following in the chapel. Burial will be in Maple Hill Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation to the Alzheimer’s Association or Whitesburg Baptist Church.
