Leona E. Coker

Leona E. Coker 78, died May 24, 2018, at Meadow View Healthcare Center in Salem. She was born June 14, 1939, to Robert and Evelyn Garriett.

Both parents, all four of her siblings, three infant daughters, a grandaughter, along with her late husband, Robert Coker, preceded her in death.

She is survived by five daughters, Ednalee Mattingly, Linda Reardon, Zalena Jackson, Laura Moore and Chasity Anderson; 12 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren and 14 great-great-grandchildren.

She chose to have no service or visitation. Instead her wishes were to be cremated and have her ashes put with those of her husband, who passed away last year, and spread over her grandparents’ farm in Borden where she grew up. A private celebration of her life will be held at that time.
