1957 - 2016 Leigh Ann Coffin, 58, died Sunday, February 21, 2016 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Beaumont, Texas after a lengthy illness. She was born September 3, 1957 to Frank C. Coffin and Ruby Battle Coffin in Orange, Texas. Leigh attended Lufkin State School for many years until she returned home to live with her brother, Frank C. Coffin, Jr. Later she chose to live in a Spindletop group home where she made many friends and acquaintances. She loved country music and considered herself a songwriter. She loved to stay busy and could be found copying material from all sorts of books, crocheting, and making latch hook rugs. Leigh was an amazing dancer that had rhythm that most people found incredible. One of her favorite activities was going out to eat. She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Ruby Coffin of Orange, Texas. She is survived by her brother, Frank C.

We would like to thank the staff at Spindletop Center as well as the ladies at Russell House for their efforts to improve Leigh's quality of life.
