Obituary of Joline Coe

Please share a memory of Joline to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Joline (Jo) Chapman Coe of Hillsborough passed away on June 27. Jo was born on September 10, 1946, in South Carolina to the late Rev. Talmage and Louise Roper Chapman. She was also predeceased by a son, Joffre (Jay) Lanning Coe III. Surviving are her husband, Joffre (Joff) L. Coe II of Mebane and grandson, Joffre (Jake) L. Coe IV of the home. Special thanks go to her caregiver, Andrea Lehman.,

Jo’s career was one dedicated to service. A graduate of Pfeiffer College (B.A.), she taught English as a second language in Thailand, after which she attended UNC-Chapel Hill (M.Ed.). This led to employment as a case manager at several entities serving those with mental and physical disabilities, including Durham Exchange Club Industries, Life Services of Durham, and the ARC. After retiring from the Developmental Disabilities Section of Orange-Person-Chatham Mental Health, she turned a volunteer position at the Women’s Shelter of the Interfaith Council for Social Service into a part-time job.

Jo’s creativity was expressed in her nonwork interests.  She was skilled at fabric arts, including quilting.  She developed a side business as a dealer of antique jewelry, also upcycling and creating jewelry.

A celebration of life will be held at Walker Funeral Home in Mebane on July 2 at 2 p.m,                  

It is suggested that those wishing to make a memorial donation to honor Jo direct it to either The Women’s Shelter, in care of the Interfaith Council for Social Service, 110 W. Main St., Carrboro, NC 27510, or Orange Grove Volunteer Fire Company, 6800 Orange Grove Rd., Hillsborough, NC 27278.

Walker's Funeral Home of Mebane is assisting the Family.
