Luereather Vinson Cobb was the first African-American to run for city office in the fast-growing city of Grovetown. She was also responsible for organizing a crime watch program in the Summerfield subdivision, where she and I lived on Taylor Circle. She owned a personal care home in Evans for 10 years before moving to Grovetown in 1994.

Mrs. Cobb had experience in business administration and handling a number of veterans affairs. She was a dedicated mother of seven children and a member of the Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church, and she was an active member of the senior citizen program in Grovetown.

She lost her battle with congestive heart failure on May 19, 2011, at Doctor’s Hospital, but she will always be remembered.

My grandma

This was more than a woman....to me she was everything! The sweet loving kindness of her voice, the melody of her love, and the smile in her laughter...she was the epitome of style and class and I will love and miss her forever and a day...

Love your First Grandbaby,
