Obituary Overview

In Loving Memory


Rae (Ellen) Coulter, your 87 years were defined by strength and love.
Strength when you held down a full-time and two part-time jobs to single-parent your three children. Strength when you put cracks in the glass ceiling as you became one of the early female managers at Eaton’s.
And love, reflected by how you will be missed by so many people.
Among them your sisters June and Shirley, children Jim and wife Colleen, Glenda and husband Gary, grandchildren Mike, Ami, James and Ali.
You will be welcomed to Heaven by your daughter Sharon, Jack and Nan.
Also loved and missed by your many nieces and nephews (Nibling‘s) and their children, whose lives you were always a part of.
Your retirement was spent giving and belonging, from running the Ajax food bank for many years to any of a dozen clubs that you were a part of.
We always told you mom that you were our role model, and your rich, full life will become the stuff of our family legends.
Always remembered,
Always loved.
A celebration of Mom’s life will be arranged when we are able. The family would like to thank the caring staff at Sunnycrest who were there for mom when we could not be because of COVID-19. In lieu of flowers mom would like you to consider a donation to your local food bank.

In 2011, my husband had a stroke and I stayed home with him and we found ourselves in the situation to use the Food Bank. This is a very humbling experience and Mrs Coulter was so very compassionate every time I saw her at the Food Bank and I left feeling very grateful for her kindness. Years later, I saw her again and thanked her and hugged her for being the wonderful lady she was, for people who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances. Thank you so much Rae for wearing your Angel wings. You truly were Heaven on Earth.

So sorry to learn of Raes passing. Came to know Rae from our weekly Euchre games at 66 Falby and could always count on her to bring a "rae" of sunshine to our games. We will miss her dearly.
