COUGHLAN
– M. Katherine (Kay)
Our
energetic and loving mother passed away peacefully, surrounded by all
of her children, in the early hours of December 29th. Born
in Saint John, May 18, 1930, she was predeceased by her
loving husband of 58 years, James F. Coughlan. She loved and
was very proud of every member of her family and their
accomplishments. She will be remembered by her five
children: Kathleen Coughlan-Wallace
(Jordan), Maureen Holditch (Michael), Chris
(Carrie) Coughlan, Peter (Melissa) Coughlan and Shawn Coughlan;
grandchildren: Seth and Braden Holditch, Mackenzie and Luke Coughlan
(Margaret Kantel), Lindsey (Kyle Finnamore), Daniel and
Katie Coughlan; and great-grandchildren: Jaxson and Kamille
Finnamore; and lastly, her beloved pet
“Babe”. She is predeceased by her father, Joseph J. Keohan;
mother, M. Kathleen (McCullough); brother, P. Joseph Keohan; and
sister, Patricia J. McAuley.
Mom
grew up in the Rockland Road area, spent her married life in
Millidgeville and was a member of the parishes of Holy Trinity and St
Pius X. She was awarded an Honorary Life Membership
by the Girl Guides of Canada, spending many years as a Brownie Leader
and was most recently a member of the Friendship Trefoil
Guild. She was a member of CWL and an active member of the
Irish Canadian Cultural Association, Saint John Chapter, having served
as the Honorary Chair. She was also a regular contributor of
handmade baby blankets and more to Romero
House.
As
a young woman she worked for the Royal Trust and after raising her
family she became the owner and creative force behind Shamrock
Ceramics. She was known as the “Violet Lady” and
her shamrock and violet covered giftware line has travelled around the
world.
She
and Dad loved to travel in their camper and made several long trips
along the US East Coast, wintering in Florida for over 15
years. Their travels also included Ireland, England,
California, Mexico, the Bahamas, the Maritimes and
Quebec.
Thank
you for the wonderful care provided by Shannex Millidgeville, the
staff of the 8th floor of St.
Joseph’s, Saint John Regional and Dr. Everett Chalmers
Hospitals, and especially Dr. Chris O’Brien.
