Leading Lady of the High Spring Baptist Church. "Mrs. Coker" was a teacher at Pleasant Grove, Shawnee beloved by students and peers for over three decades. The sound of her laughter can still be heard. She was full of life and very outgoing. She brought joy, laughter, and a willingness to help a friend or stranger. One can always remember her quote, "now I'm gonna tell you this". She could not go anywhere without seeing someone she knew and bring a smile to their face. Her magnetic personality was captivating and always left a lasting impression.
Grandma will forever be in our hearts. We will miss you mama.
