On Friday, April 21, 2023., Kathy Evans of Chatham, passed away at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance, in
her 77th year.
She was an incredibly devoted mother and awesome best friend to her only child, Robin Brown of Chatham-Kent, Ontario. Kathy’s beloved parents were the late Richard M. & Mary A. (Basham) Coffman, both of Kentucky, moving to Canada with Chrysler in the 1930s. Sister of Richard C. Coffman of Las Vegas, NV. and predeceased by her deeply cherished sister Carolynn (Coffman, Fallbeck) Borst. She will be immensely missed by nieces and nephews; Richard P. Coffman, Kathy (Ben) Theroux and children Richard N. (Rana & daughters Annie & Ava) & Nicole Coffman, Natalie (Rino) DeDona and children Desiree Coffman (sons Lincoln & Grayson) & Dustin Coffman - all of Windsor, Ontario, Lori Odenweller and sons Cole & Bryce, Mary Kay Fallbeck, all of Woodland, California, Chris Fallbeck and daughters Kailey & Alison of Roseville, California. Predeceased by Gary Evans and step-mother of Gary and Derrick Evans of Victoria, BC., Lacey (Darryl) Gilbert of London and six step-grandchildren.
Kathy took great pride in her 47 years of dedication to Enbridge. (‘Union Gas’, ‘Spectra Energy’, ‘Duke Energy’). She was known for her high level of professionalism, integrity, and sense of humor when dealing with difficulty. She had impeccable style and always greeted others warmly with her unforgettable smile. Much of her career at the company was as an Executive Assistant to Vice Presidents and three Presidents. Kathy was elected queen of her high school for outstanding achievements & beauty (but struggled throughout life, with self-esteem). Many of us saw her as our family’s princess. She was beautiful both inside and out. Our family’s solace is that our three incredible matriarchs are reunited. Her joys were gardening, reading, jigsaw puzzles, having breakfast with her friends at Hungry Man and Smitty’s, being a dog Mom & spending time with her daughter.
Visitation will be held at the McKinlay Reception Centre, 459 St.Clair St., Chatham on Sunday, May 21, 2023 from 10:00AM - 2:00PM. If choosing an expression of remembrance, please plant something, give your time or donate to a charity of your choice. Thank you to all in her life.
