DaLeisha Nicole "Nicki" Cochran Bell of Lorain, Ohio, gently passed from this life early Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012.
She was born May 1,st, 1976, in Weston, WV, to her loving parents, Roy and Pamela (Igo) Cochran.
She was welcomed to Heaven by her dear cousin, Billy Foster, her dear grandparents, Billy and Chrystelle Bowen, and her precious great-grandparents, Sebert and Clara Lucas.
As a child, Nicki attended First Baptist Christian School, Open Door Christian School, Amherst Public Schools and The King's Academy. As an adult, she became a certified medical assistant after attending Sanford Brown Institute.
Nicki enjoyed her time of working with the American Red Cross. She especially enjoyed blood drives in mid-Ohio, where she met and talked with many women of the Amish community, sharing recipes and learning their home remedies.
She also enjoyed working for a time in her own small bakery business, "DaLeisha's Delights", specializing in childhood favorite cookies, as well as recipes of her own creation.
Nicki was a voracious reader. She enjoyed decorating her home and writing in her journals. She loved her cats and her dogs, all of whom were rescue animals from the APL. She truly enjoyed visiting with her nieces, Riley Lynn and Devyn Faith Kranes of Avon Lake, and Taylor Goffee of North Ridgeville, and her nephew, T.J. Goffee of North Ridgeville.
Most of all in life, Nicki loved her precious son, Donovan Jacob Bell.
