Patricia Marie Coker
Born October 7, 1938 in Ceres, California to Marion and Angelina Pimentel, passed away December 10, 2018 with her family by her side.
She was married to husband Fred Coker for 44 years; they had four children Kirk Coker, John Coker, Russell Coker, and Angela Coker (Weidman). Patricia has seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
She graduated Modesto High School in 1956. As an Air Force wife she attended several colleges, earning both master’s and bachelor’s degrees. Patricia was a teacher for 35 years in multiple states. She loved teaching and she loved learning, especially learning about genealogy, which was one of her passions. She was a world traveler, starting in the 1950’s with Fred’s deployment to Spain, and continuing to Japan and other countries. She especially loved visiting Seaside, Oregon and would plan extended trips there every September. She also loved telling stories, stories about her childhood, her time as a military wife, raising her family, teaching school, and traveling. She had many friends who were like family to her, and she never met a stranger in her life, having an uncanny ability to strike up a conversation with someone she’d just met.
A viewing and Rosary will be held at East Lawn Funeral Home in Elk Grove on Sunday, December 16th from 1 – 5 PM. Rosary will begin promptly at 3 PM.
A Catholic Mass will be held at 10 AM at St. Maria Gorettie Catholic Church, 8700 Bradshaw Road, reception to follow.
