Obituary of Rose K. Coakley

Rose Ann (Kapichok) Coakley, age 89, of Gilbertsville, PA passed away on November 2, 2021.  


She was born in Conshohocken, PA, the daughter of the late Rose Pendleton (Tucker) Kapichok and John Kapichok.  


She was a graduate of Conshohocken High School, class of 1949.  Rose worked for Bell Telephone in Norristown where she enjoyed many group trips to Europe with her fellow colleagues before getting married and starting a family.  After her children reached their teenage years, she went back to work driving a school van for James O. Sacks transporting handicapped children for many years before retiring.


She enjoyed reading books, countless hours of putting jigsaw puzzles together, gardening, crafts and her many trips to the thrift stores.  She was always optimistic and never said an unkind word.


In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Eugene R. Coakley in 2009, a brother W. Howard Kapichok in 1986 and a nephew William H. Kapichok in 2020.
