From page A2 | July 08, 2013 |

Dec. 22, 1948 — July 2, 2013

Losing a three-and-a-half year battle with cancer, Nancy Coate passed away peacefully July 2, 2013, surrounded by family and friends. She was 64. We have lost a quiet but wise and loyal friend, mother and wife.

Growing up in Sacramento and graduating from Sacramento High in 1967, Nancy then attended Mills College, earning a degree in mathematics in 1971. That same year she married Jim, and so began a 42-year adventure together of love, exploring, hiking, backpacking, camping, birding, reading (and more reading), teaching, music and, most important, raising a family in Placerville. Summers and other school vacations found Nancy, Jim and their two boys, Andy and Tom, rambling all around the West in their VW bus, Ford Bronco or camper truck, as well as hiking and backpacking in the Sierras. Nancy was truly at peace in the Sierras.

Nancy’s career included teaching and working as an aide for El Dorado High School, Louisiana Schnell School and the El Dorado Office of Education. Another facet of Nancy’s life was playing clarinet in the Sierra Symphony for 20 years. She is survived by her parents, Bob and Ruth Loveless; husband, Jim; sons, Andy and Tom (Megan); granddaughters, Taylor and Amelia (Andy’s); grandsons, Soren and Reece (Tom’s); sister, Jean; mother-in-law, Margy; and brothers-in-law, John and Ken.

A celebration of Nancy’s life will be held on Tuesday, July 9, at 12 noon, at Edwin Markham Middle School in Placerville. All are welcome.

When you next step off the pavement into the Sierras, pause a moment. A part of Nancy will be with you.
