I think about you so much grandma. When I’ve had a hard day or a difficult time in my life you’re the one I always turned to for support and guidance. I love you and miss you.

Cozy and I worked together for many years at OTC--first in Student Services & later in the General Education Office. Cozy always had a smile for everyone and a calmness and caring nature that touched not only her coworkers, but all the students she assisted each day. I will cherish many fond memories of her always. Cozy Joplin was a kind, caring woman who made this world a better place. Carole Atkins

Cozy was a big part of my OTC life. She was equally kind to everyone. In the science department we order many unusual supplies which were delivered to the General Education office where Cozy reigned. She was not fond of the dissection specimens that would be delivered. She would call me and tell me to come and get my brains, kidneys, cats, etc. and get them OUT of her office. The combination of humor and kindness is very special. I know she will be missed. Thank you to the Joplin family for sharing her with us.

We all loved Cozi when she was with our OTC family. She always had a smile but always knew when a little 'tude was needed. She will be missed. And to her family, thank you for sharing her with us for so many years. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss. Sincerely, Shelia Taylor, D.V.M.

Cozy was a fabulous lady. She was the Gen. Ed. secretary at OTC when I first started and she always made laugh. She will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I would like to extend my deepest heartfelt sympathies and condolences to Cozetta's entire family circle. While I never had the honor of getting to know Cozetta personally, I have had the immense privilege of working with her daughter, Jody; and feel as though I have been able to capture a glimpse of a truly great woman - both from the stories I have heard about her, and through getting to know the wonderful daughter she raised. Just as words can never adequately capture the life of one who lives each day as a blessing to others, nor can they alleviate the grief experienced by those left behind when that blessing is called home. In this difficult season, as a fellow Christian, I will only say that for us, death is not the end - it's only the beginning. Our time on Earth is short. While the absence of a cherished loved one during that time is excruciating, it is only temporary. You will see her again soon. Until then, her blessed memory and spirit live on within you. She is not lost, not gone, not forgotten - but waiting patiently at the finish line for you to finish running your own race. So run your race well, as she would have you do, and make her proud. Then you will have the rest of eternity to share with her - without pain, without fear, and without sorrow. Sincerely, Jason D.
