As an extraordinary lady, Mrs. Coats will be dearly missed by all those who knew her. As the loving matriarch of her family, she remained actively involved in the lives of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. When I think of Mrs. Coats, I am reminded of one of the “core values” of the U.S. Air Force: “Service before self.” Mrs. Coats loved her family and friends dearly and she often sacrificed for their benefit, lovingly serving others before herself. Her example serves an uplifting inspiration to others.
We offer our deepest sympathy to her family and many friends. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the Comforter) provide strength, comfort, and assurance in this time of sorrow. As fellow believers, we know that we shall see Mrs. Coats again, thanks to the assuring promise of eternal life that we have in God’s Son Who is our Savior Jesus Christ.
May God bless you all. Billy and Gail Booth
