She went on to Columbus, Ohio where she earned a BS in Music Education from Capital University. It was there she met her husband. As her husband went to graduate school, Coleen became one of the best band directors ever. She started programs at many schools and every student she knew loved her. She inspired them to perform at their highest level. Coleen and her husband lived in Jacksonville for almost 30 years with their son, Scott. They were members of St. Luke's Episcopal Church. For some of those years, Coleen was choir director and on the Vestry.
