Floyce June Coulter
July 28, 1933 ~ September 8, 2023 (age 90) 90 Years Old
Our beloved Floyce June Coulter passed peacefully with family by her side at 90 years old on Friday, September 8, 2023.
Affectionately known to her family, friends and all who knew her as June, she was a resident of Nampa, Idaho at the time of her death, and had been a long-time resident of El Sobrante, California until her move to Idaho in 2018.
June was born July 28, 1933, in the tiny town of Overton in Rusk County, Texas to her father Manuel Harm Begley and mother Zadie Estella (Chance) Begley. She was the second of five children and grew up adoring her sisters Frankie and Jeep and her brothers Bub and James.
June met Edward Gerald Coulter at a high school dance in San Pablo. They married May 4, 1951, in Rollingwood, California at her parents’ house in front of family and friends.
June worked outside of the home at the Bank of America in the Richmond and San Pablo branches, but her most meaningful work was spent as a mother and wife. Her leisure time was spent as a regular host of the National Night Out, as a member of the Richmond chapter of the Eastern Star, and of course piddling around in her backyard among her famous lemon tree and her world-class flower garden.
In her years in El Sobrante, June was known for her love and affection toward her many neighborhood friends, and she brought that warmth with her when she moved to Idaho. She had an open-door policy, and the kids of the neighborhood knew her affectionately as Grandma June. She loved everyone she came to know and was loved by everyone who came to know her.
Those who knew June best knew she had a spectacular green thumb that she used to create magnificent flower gardens. She had a love for tea, as long as it tasted like pure sugar, her legendary homemade yeast rolls were a must-have, and no one else on earth could give or receive a hug like June Coulter. She took the role of being Favorite Aunt June to her nieces and nephews very seriously and loved them with all her heart. June will be sorely missed by her entire family and all who knew her for her love, charm, vivacity, quick wit, and snarky sense of humor.
June was preceded in death by her husband Ed, her great-grandson Jeremy Woodward, and her siblings Manuel (Bub) Begley, Francis (Frankie) VanAssen and Janice (Jeep) Furman.
She is survived by her brother James Begley, son Edward (Jerry) Coulter Jr. (Patricia Condon) and daughter Linda Coulter, her grandchildren Michael Knight (Shawna Reynolds), Elizabeth Knight (Timothy Woodward), Edward Gerald Coulter III (Molly Hagen), Logan James Coulter (Mehri Mostala), Rebecca Zadie Coulter (Timothy Carroll), as well as seventeen great-grandchildren, six great-great-grandchildren., and many nieces and nephews.
