LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Gloria Jean Coyne, age 79 went home to be with the Lord.

She passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2021, with her family at her side, as tears rolled down her face.

Gloria was born on Feb. 2, 1942, in Campbell, California, to parents Madeline and Noah Bedal.

Gloria was called the little groundhog because she was born on Groundhog’s Day.

She loved the outdoors, water sports, folk dancing, camping, hanging out with her family, which she loved very much. Her grandkids were beyond spoiled by her love.

When Gloria was younger, she loved to go to her uncle's house and ride the horses, ride the tractor and milk the cows with her sisters.

Gloria was a member of the Red Hatters (she loved), City of Angels, her theatre company and (musical/plays) Civic Club with the women, Campfire, YMCA and Indian Guides. She was involved with her church family.

Madeline and Noah Bedal and her sister Marilynn preceded Gloria in death.

Her loving husband John Coyne survived her, along with her three children, David Coyne (Cindi), Steve Coyne and Kimberly Robinson (Jeff).

Also surviving her are siblings, Edna Rodriggs (Joan); and her grandkids, Tyler Coyne, Jason Coyne, Markie Mercado and Hannah Robinson.

Gloria loved her husband of 62 years, John Coyne. They had many great and fun memories. My dad will cherish all these memories. We will miss hearing mom’s voice and laughter and her beautiful smile.

Family is invited to attend the celebration of life at Kelseyville Presbyterian Church, 5340 Third St., Kelseyville, starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 20, along with a reception to follow in the fellowship hall.
