Centerville — Joan Coleman, a long-time resident of Centerville, Utah, died Monday the 30th of September at her home. She was born in Magrath, Alberta, Canada, February 14, 1930. As a child, Joan grew up on a farm and developed talents in cooking, sewing and singing. She did well in school and received her high school diploma in Montana at the age of 16. Joan had various jobs throughout her life. Two of the most impactful were her role as our mother and grandmother, and her job at the Church Office Building in the magazine department, where she worked until her retirement.
Joan loved good food and good books. She was accomplished at sewing and handicrafts. She always had a listening ear. She is preceded in death by her parents, John Leroy and Leah Davies Coleman, her sister and brother-in-law, Enid and Kendon Naylor, her sister and brother-in-law, Olga and Bernard Gull, ex-husband, Leland Davis, and a niece and grandnephew. She is survived by her children Michael (Janet) Davis, Robert (Jill) Davis, Liz Davis, Ruth (Todd) Sweeten; her 20 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren, all of whom brought great joy to her life. We give thanks to Jimmy’s Floral, Russon Brothers Mortuary, and Memorial Estates for helping us mom’s final services.
