Anna Cosens Obituary

Anna Faye (Roberts) Cosens passed away peacefully in her sleep and surrounded by her loved ones on February 7, 2024, at age 87. 

Faye was born in Seminole, Oklahoma, to Louis and Ina Roberts on May 7, 1936. She went to the Highland School of Nursing in Oakland, California, where she graduated with a nursing degree which she used to bring many new lives into the world as a labor and delivery nurse. On Christmas Eve of 1960, Faye would meet the love of her life, Ray Thomas Cosens, on a blind date set up by their best friends, and married him exactly 3 months later on March 25, 1961, in Carmel, California. They made their home for 38 years in Oxnard, where they raised two children, then moved to Idaho Falls in August 1999 a few years after retirement where Faye particularly enjoyed the beautiful changing seasons that the area offered. 

Faye was a fantastic cook and the textbook definition of a "Hostess with the Mostest" who loved to throw dinner parties for any occasion. Known as "Nam" by her grandchildren, she could often be found with several of them on the kitchen counter helping (definitely mostly tasting) as she made all sorts of desserts, but especially her favorite snickerdoodle cookies. Her house was often filled by classical music that she enjoyed singing along to as she worked on her various crafting hobbies or while reading a good mystery novel as she settled down for the day.

She was preceded in death by her husband Ray Cosens. She is survived by her 2 children, Michael Cosens (wife Jovita) and Jane Branch (husband Steven) all in Idaho Falls, Idaho. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Michelle Cosens, Rachel Cosens, Caitlyn Willey (husband Nolan), Tyler Branch, Eric Cosens, and Lauryn Branch; as well as her great-grandchildren, Jasmine Beauchene, Toi Payne, Hunter Branch, Dakota Woods, and Ryker Payne.
