For twelve years she battled cancer courageously. Coan was born June 1, 1947, in Morrison, IL, to the late Gloria and Kenneth Rick.

Dow of Boston, MA; her daughter and son-in-law, Christina and Guillaume Zublema, of Los Angeles, CA; her dear friend and caregiver, Mariola; her sister, Colleen; her niece Gloria and husband, Mike; two great nephews, Connor and Jacob, great niece Erika; her pets, Simba, Katrina and Oscar; many loving friends.
