GERALDINE COULTER

Geraldine Lucille (Isaacs) Coulter, 84, first child of Lucille Williams Isaacs of Gravel Switch, Kentucky and William Owen Isaacs of Louisville, Kentucky, was born on October 3, 1928 in Detroit Michigan and passed away Tuesday, August 27, 2013.

Geraldine and Leon Coulter met at Western Kentucky University, where Gerry was an Education Major. Leon first saw Gerry in the fall, as she was walking on campus atop a small stone border. They were married on June 12, 1948 and just celebrated their 65th year of marriage. Her husband of 65 years has always recalled that specific moment with fond memories, and said he made his mind up at that instant, he wanted to marry that girl, though he was yet to meet her. They married six months later and have had a wonderful marriage.

Gerry attended Fern Creek High School and graduated in the 1946 Class of Okolona High School. Gerry was an English teacher and went back to Leon's hometown of Willisburg, Kentucky to teach English in the small town high school. When being hired as an English teacher the principal asked Gerry if she would teach Spanish and penmanship along with English. Gerry was well qualified to teach all but Spanish, which, she had had only one year. The principal had great confidence in her, and is proved to be well placed. Gerry purchased text books, and learned Spanish just one lesson ahead of her class. Throughout the years, many former students have told her, though she was only 19 when she first taught, she had made a real difference in their lives, this is something that always brought her joy.

Gerry was an avid reader and collected quotes, many times reflecting concerns and events in the family The Coulters celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with their daughter, Kay, and three grand children by taking the Queen Elizabeth II from NYC to South Hampton, England with an extended trip to Paris, France. Travel, both internationally and domestically, was an important part of Geraldine's life. She was always open to new experiences and learning about new places. She instilled in her children and grandchildren her desire to be curious and open to new experiences. Gerry and Leon have been members of Wildwood Country Club, for 54 years, where she enjoyed golf and duplicate bridge. Though ever the lady, she had a competitive edge that placed her as a winning golfer and bridge player. She was a very worthy opponent.

Geraldine and her husband, were subscribing members of Astor's Theater of Louisville, for over 40 years, and rarely missed a performance. Many remember her kind and encouraging words and ways, and her special interest in the Ronald McDonald House in Louisville. For years she tirelessly collected pull tabs from aluminum cans to donate to the Ronald McDonald House. Every year she received letters of recognition for her contributions, as she encouraged businesses and individuals to also save the tabs, and she would tirelessly collect and gather collections from others.

Grandchildren, Michael, Jason, Trent, Kate and Beau have brought her years of joy, as she continued her "teacher's way" of seeing the world and sharing her knowledge with the next generation. Whether she was collecting Petosky Stones in Michigan Lakes, or tagging Monarch butterflies on Kelly's Island outside Cleveland, to tracking their migration to Mexico, shell collecting on Captiva, or picking up fallen bird feathers, she was always on the lookout for wonders of nature. Fossil hunting on the Falls of the Ohio, along with leaf collecting for school projects were always ongoing projects. Nature reveals God's hands, and lessons on faith were ever present.

Geraldine began her Christian life on "Cradle Roll" of Meadow Home Baptist Church, where she was Baptized. Gerry and Leon Coulter, were 20 year members of Okolona Baptist Church, where Gerry taught Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, even taking goats to classes, to teach the children how to milk a goat, and learn about funny goat behavior. Gerry was a long time member of Women's Missionary Union, Okolona Women's Club and the Buechel Women's' Club.

In the 1970's Gerry and her family joined Christ Church United Methodist, where Gerry was very active, Gerry volunteered many years at Baptist Hospital in their Women's Auxiliary, Methodist Hospital, and Wesley Manor Retirement Center.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Lucille Williams and William Owen Isaacs, Sr. Geraldine also had one sister, Daphne Isaacs, who passed away as an infant and a brother, William Owen (Bo) Isaacs, Jr., who passed away October 21, 1962.

Geraldine is survived by her husband of 65 years, Gilbert Leon Coulter, her daughters Marcia Kay Coulter Deckman, (Joe) Highlands, North Carolina, and Monica Lee Coulter (Lee Burger), Minneapolis, Minnesota, brother James Leo Isaacs, Hilton Head Island, SC, . (Barbara Dill), brother Leland Thomas Isaacs of Louisville, Kentucky and his wife Pat Isaacs.

Geraldine loved and spent as much time as possible with her grandchildren, Michael Todd Deckman (San Diego, California), Jason Thomas Deckman (Irvine, California), Thomas Trenton Jesukaitis, wife, Beth,(Tucson, Arizona), Kate Lankford Deckman (Manhattan), Joseph Coulter (Beau) Deckman, wife, Ashley, (Minneapolis, Minnesota) and one Great-Grandson, born August 15, 2013, to Trent and Beth Jesukaitis, Leo Royal Jesukaitis, (Tucson, Arizona).

The family extends our heartfelt gratitude to family and friends who have been so caring and supportive through Gerry's long battle with lymphoma. Our deep thank you to the gifted and caring staff at Wesley Manor, who gave Gerry, Peace, comfort and dignity in her last days, may God bless them all
