Sue Davenport Cochran
Sue Davenport Cochran, 75, of Cumming, died Nov. 22, 2017. Born Oct. 15, 1942 to Robert and Edythe Davenport in Southern Pines, N.C., Sue grew up in Raleigh and graduated from Broughton High School and King’s Business College. A local newspaper referred to her as “Sunshine Sue” in a profile of local teens, and that name fit her perfectly. Her sunny disposition and beautiful smile were well known by all her friends and acquaintances. As a child, Sue developed a love of sewing that she would enjoy her whole life. While living in Dalton, Ga., she owned the Knit Wit, a specialty retail store which drew needlework enthusiasts from all over northwest Georgia and Tennessee. Later in life, Sue became an avid quilter and always enjoyed the challenge of tackling a new pattern, exploring quilt stores wherever she went and meeting new people in quilting circles like the many good friends she made as a member of Piecemakers Quilt Guild.
