Remembering our colleague, Joan Cochet, who passed away on Oct. 9, 2014. Joan's Obituary
From the National Center for State Courts:
NCSC and nation's court community experience loss
NCSC Library resource manager touched many lives
NCSC and the nation's court community lost a friend and colleague October 9 with the unexpected death of Joan Cochet, NCSC Library resource manager. Joan worked at NCSC for 10 years, during which time she touched the lives of court professionals around the country. In addition to her NCSC colleagues, Joan worked closely with court leaders, members of the nation's court associations, and Fellows of the Institute for Court Management. Joan was the court community's go-to person, no detail or resource too obscure for her to locate. "Joan possessed the unique combination of being extremely knowledgeable and professional and equally genuine and personable. She made an impact on everyone she met," said NCSC President Mary McQueen. Joan's reach is evident through the outpouring of condolences NCSC has received upon word of her death. "Joan's passion for NCSC's library was evident and she was truly dedicated to helping all of us be successful," said ICM Fellow Faye Guertin, deputy court administrator, Chandler Municipal Court, in Arizona. Joan is survived by her husband, Anthony Andrew Cochet, Sr.; son Anthony Andrew Cochet, Jr.; daughter, Cheryl Cathleen Cochet; grandchildren, Camile Joan, Noah, and Drew; twin sister Jean Ann Gentry; and father, David Galliart.
