Karen and Family
You have our deepest sympathy at this very sad time in your life. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Patty & Jim Laird – 03/10/2009

I know that your mom is in the arms of Jesus and knowing the full expression of love, peace and joy, but there are no words that can take the sorrow from your heart. Please know that my heart aches for you and I am in constant prayer on your behalf. When you can no longer find words to pray, know that prayers are still being said. He will hear and His peace will prevail.
As a teen,I remember the warmth and comfort she brought to her home. I see that same warmth in your home and in your heart.She has built a legacy of love.

My family and I are thinking of Auntie Jean and Lorne and her loved ones with deep sympathy at her passing. Even at a distance, we are sorry for their grief yet we celebrate her life. I know that I have happy memories of Jean enjoying herself at Lake Shebandowan, having fun, making us all laugh, making the world a sunnier place.

I have fond memories of growing up on Toepfer Street in Warren with the Coghlans. I remember my mom and Jean moving furniture on a wagon down the street to their new home. I have many great memories of Toepfer, especially when the Ladies of Toepfer got together for coffee and gossip. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family always.

Janet Mooneyham – 03/10/2009

It is with deep sadness that my family and I have heard of the passing of my aunt, Jean Coghlan, who was a person of great courage. She is remembered by us for her joy in life, her big heart and fun loving personality,and most of all, for her devotion to, and love of her large family, both immediate and extended. She will be very much missed by everyone whose life she touched, including my mother, Irene Matson,her oldest sister. We hope that her husband Lorne,her children and theirs will continue to be encouraged by the memory of her happy spirit.
