Obituary for LoRee Wilder Cobb

LoRee (Bowser) Wilder Cobb, 93, of Lapeer, formerly of North Branch, went to be with her Lord on July 2, 2018. She was born January 1, 1925 in Birch Run, MI.

She is survived by her 4 daughters, RoseMary Crego, Gloria Fischer, Barbara Burgess, and Penny (Kevin) Woidan, 6 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren.  LoRee is preceded in death by her husband, Robert Wilder; husband, Paul Cobb; grandchildren, Julie Fischer and Joshua King.

Many locals in downtown North Branch will remember LoRee tending to her lush gardens, washing the siding on her yellow house, and endlessly raking leaves from the village trees.  She could also be spotted tending to downtown flower boxes and the village flag pole site for the North Branch Methodist Church Garden Club.

LoRee spent her entire life being a helper.  She helped not only family, but friends, neighbors and strangers.  She volunteered, offered her services and gave her time and money freely throughout her life. We can never know the full impact of her 93 years of goodwill, but she helped to positively impact the lives of many in her small community.

Memorial donations may be made to the American Heart Association. Arrangements for cremation have been entrusted to Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors - Capstick Chapel in Lapeer. A Celebration of Life service will take place on a later date. To place an online condolence please visit
