Sarah was a devout member of the Seventh-day Adventist faith and served the local con- gregation as a longtime church treasurer and Sabbath School superintendent.

"John" Coiort Sr. passed from this life peaceful- ly under the compassionate care of the staff at Country Villa-Riverview in SusanviUe on Tuesday evening, Oct. 9, 2012. John, as he preferred to be called, was born in Ham- mond, Okla to Abraham and Iva (Fesmire) Cozort on June 25, 1916. He was raised along with eight other broth- ers, and the family members banded together to support themselves doing mainly farm work. At the age of 18, John joined the Civilian Conserva- tion Corps and was assigned to Wyoming. In 1936 he left the corps to follow his par- ents to California where they settled in San Jose. A year later John followed his brother to the northeastern California lumber communi- ty of Westwood where he be- gan work as a waiter in the company's mess hall. He lat- er went to work in the mill as a lumber straightener while also learning several other job lJositions. He was eventu- ally promoted to the position of millwright in the dry kiln. At the onset of World War II, inspired by the attack on Pearl Harbor, John joined the war effort as a member of the U.S. Navy. Following a three-week boot camp he was shipped to Pearl Harbor and was assigned to the USS Ralph Talbot DD390, a de: stroyer that had survived the attack. He advanced through the ranks to water tender second class before his hon- orable discharge in Septem- ber 1945. He survived numer- ous campaigns in the Pacific, including the Solomon Is- lands. John returned to his posi- tion as a millwright with Fruit Growers Supply Co. along with his new wife. To their union a son was born. The marriage later ended in divorce. While working nights as a bartender at the Meadows outside of West- wood he met a pretty young schoolteacher named Rose Cobo. This encounter led to the couple's marriage in Love- lock, Nev on June 4, 1949, and to this union a daughter and son were added. Upon the closing of Fruit Growers Supply Co John went to work for the Collins Pine mill in Chester where he retired as the planing mill millwright decades later with a reputation for hard work and good humor. Upon his moving to Chester John was recruited into the local VFW post and later became a member of the local American Legion post. As a life member of the Har- ry Doble Post 664 John served as commander on nu- merous occasions as well as a number of other positions with the post. He went on to serve his fellow veterans as a state representative for both the VFW and the American Legion.
