Barbara Ruth Coker of Livingston, Texas, joined the Lord on Wednesday July 29, 2020 after battling esophageal cancer. Family services will be held at Pace Funeral Home in Livingston on Saturday August 8, 2020 at noon to honor her memory.

Barbara was born in Giddings, TX to Benjamin and Betty Gunter on February 24, 1951. She began school in Taiwan and later attended school in Giddings, Texas. Barbara married Gene Coker on November 1, 1980 in Houston, TX. She worked in the medical field for 20 years touching countless lives.

Barbara was a true light that enjoyed every day. She was full of joy and smiles for everyone she met. She loved baking and knitting and spending time outdoors. She enjoyed watching game shows and Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy were her favorites. She loved Elvis and was never seen without her signature red lipstick. She was a loving devoted wife, grandmother, and friend. She will be missed by her family and friends dearly.

Barbara is preceded in death by her parents and her brother Benjamin Gunter. She is survived by her four children; Chris and Tracy Medack of Caldwell, Joy Ray of Mandeville, Louisiana, Brandon and Sandy Coker of Galveston, and Len and Amanda Medack of Cypress. She adored her grandchildren; Gavin Ray, Kennedy Ray, Campbell Coker, Loren Medack, and Brinn Medack. She is survived by her siblings, Cecil and Patsy Buscha, Johnnie Reynolds, Terry Iselt, Joe Gunter, Travis and Lynn Gunter, Susie and Gary Wrinkle, and William Gunter.

The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Harbor Hospice of Livingston for their loving compassionate care in her final days.
