Eula Mae McCaslin Coker, 85, went to be with the Lord Monday, Sept. 18, 2017. Eula was born in Corsicana to Marshall and Augusta "Guster" McCaslin. During her time on this Earth she was so much to so many: a teacher, a seamstress, a baker, a gardener, a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a great-grandmother, an aunt, a neighbor and a treasured friend. She found joy in the simple beauties of nature and in the sweet moments shared with the ones she loved. She worked tirelessly and loved deeply and she will be greatly missed.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Orion E. Coker; sons, Troy and Clinton; baby girl, Debra Kay; brothers, Ardie and Marshall Jr., and sisters, Bonnie Rash, Alline Burnett, Opal Brewer, and Vera Boyd.
She is survived by three children, Jeffrey Coker, Sharon Tamez and husband Eliud "Ellie", Shirlene Williams and husband J.D.; three grandchildren, Matthew Gilbert and wife Jennifer, Joshua Gilbert and wife Christy, Amber Grootemaat and husband Dodge; four great grandchildren, Casey, Lilly, Bailey and Cory; one sister, Betty Wheat, as well as many other treasured family and friends who she loved like family.
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017 at Corley Funeral Home, 418 N. 13th St., in Corsicana.
A small graveside service will be held for family at Eureka Cemetery where her ashes will be buried alongside her husband. A reception/lunch to celebrate her life will follow.
