On Sunday, September 5, 2021, Dorothy Charlotte Coler, loving wife and mother, passed away at home surrounded by her loved ones at the age of 91.
On January 2, 1930, Dorothy was born to Elmer and Glee Ludlam in Genoa, Colorado, one of six siblings. She grew up in Colorado, where she met her husband George Coler, and the two were married in 1950. She and George settled in the Denver suburbs to raise their family. Dorothy legally adopted George’s daughter in 1952, and they also had four sons in the span of five years! After raising their family, George and Dorothy relocated to Boise, ID, to follow George’s job promotion with General Electric. They lived happily in the same house in Boise for 44 years.
After George’s death in 2009, Dorothy embraced the next season of life, pouring herself into Bible study, church volunteering, and new friendships. Dorothy had a lifelong passion for two things: Jesus and Family. She shared her faith with everyone she knew and loved her family in a truly unconditional, life-long fashion. To Dorothy, love was a verb shown in every way possible to her family. She never missed a life celebration making sure everyone knew how much she valued each one of them.
Dorothy is preceded in death by her parents, siblings, and devoted husband, George Coler, as well as her daughter-in-law Ann Coler, her grandchildren, Charlie Duncan, Bobby Duncan, and Kalyn Burnett. Along with two great grandchildren, Cody Cover and Avery Brecks.

She is also survived by eight grandchildren, twenty-four great grandchildren, and 12 great great grandchildren.
