Jeannette M. Cobbs

Jeannette M. Cobbs, 47, died at her home in Brockton on Saturday, July 15, 2023, unexpectedly but after a long period of deteriorating health.  Born in Stoughton, daughter of Juanita (Silva) Perry and James F. Cobbs, she was raised in Brockton and was a 1993 graduate of Brockton High School. She later attended Massasoit Community College and was a graduate of Rob Roy Beauty Academy in Taunton.  Jeannette worked at various area healthcare facilities and enjoyed her work as a Case Worker at the New England Coalition Against Trafficking before her health struggles led to her retirement.  She was a dedicated mother and grandmother.  Jeannette was member of the Nipmuc Native American Nation and was known as “Graceful Swan” to her fellow members of the Nipmuc Nation. She was known for helping those in need and for her big heart and generous nature.  Jeannette enjoyed music, especially R&B and Gospel and was always available to help assist with doing hair or makeup. In her free time, she enjoyed spending time with her beloved family.

Jeannette was the mother of Haylee Cobbs and Isaiah Cobbs both of Middleboro and Mariah Cobbs Redlon of Fall River.  She was the daughter of Juanita (Silva) Perry of Middleboro and James F. Cobbs, Jr. of Brockton.  Jeannette was the sister of the late Candice Cobbs and the stepsister of Amanda, James and Harrison Cobbs and the grandmother of ILannah Quinones and Vanessa Redlon and was awaiting the birth of her third grandchild.  She is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins.
