Emma Rose Coleman Obituary
OBERLIN - Emma Rose Coleman, 19, died unexpectedly in Oberlin when her heart stopped on Saturday night, November 26. She was removed from life support at the Cleveland Clinic on Tuesday morning, November 29, where her organs were donated. An accomplished violinist, artist and writer, Emma was a 2010 graduate of Oberlin High School, and was a sophomore at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, where she was a recipient of a STRIDE research scholarship. Emma is survived by her immediate family: mother Rebecca Cross, father Randolph Coleman and cherished brother Schuyler Samuel Coleman; half-sister Rachael Brehm, and nephews Clayton and Davis Brehm of Oberlin and half-brother Ian Coleman of Eugene, Oregon; uncles and aunts Tim Cross and Ute Hahmann of Dresden, Germany; Sean and Kelly Cross (cousins Davis and Loren) of Boise, Idaho; Henry and Leslie Coleman (cousins Mary Clayton and Ran), Clayton and Crystal Coleman (cousin Alan), and aunt Patricia Harding (cousins Neal and Gene) of Virginia; the Madden cousins of Vermont; her beloved, Lee Carruthers, and his daughters Zoe and Kira; and many godmothers, friends and teachers. Her memorial service will be held in Finney Chapel in Oberlin on Sunday, December 18th from 4-6 p.m. A private internment at Westwood Cemetery, and the scattering of some of her ashes into the waters of the Northern Oregon coast, will be made at a later date. A book fund at the Oberlin Public Library has been created in her name, and contributions in her honor may be made to Oberlin Community Services or Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontiers.
