She was the ninth child of ten children born to the union of the late Minister Link Knox, Jr. and Frances Allen-Knox. Coot came to Christ at a young age and was a faithful and dedicated member of the St. Paul Church of God In Christ. In 1963, she graduated from Montgomery County Vocational High School and later moved to Seattle, Washington, where she met Willie Lee Coleman. They were married on July 18, 1968, and had two children, LeMont and Shunta. Coot was a longtime member of Tolliver Temple Church of God in Christ under the leadership of Pastor O.J. Jenkins and First Lady Jenkins. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and children. Coot leaves to cherish her memory of her three sisters, Frances "Doll" Thomas of San Bernadino, California; Eola "Dimp" Coleman (Roosevelt) of Meridian, Mississippi; and Rachel James of Los Angeles, California. Her unwavering faith in God and love for her family and friends will continue to inspire those fortunate enough to have known her. Her legacy of kindness and generosity will live on through the countless lives she touched. Service held on March 18, 2023, at Tolliver Temple C.O.G.I.C 1915 E Fir Street Seattle WA, 98122
