Coughlin, Emily

In loving

memory we say good-bye to


William Coughlin born March 29th, 1931 to Emma and Roy Wood in Franklin, TN. She passed away on June 11th, 2017 at 86 years old.

She is survived by her three children who loved her very much, Tom Coughlin and wife, Jenny, Karen Blagg and husband, Jim and Mavis Gorley and husband, Joe; grandchildren, Megan

Coughlin, James and

Samantha Gorley.

Emily loved to play Bridge with her 80's club and loved Jeopardy. Emily fell in love with Alb. and moved here from Detroit, MI. She fell in love with Jim Coughlin at Sandia Labs and was married for over 52 years. Emily

retired from APS and she and Jim enjoyed traveling extensively with their daughter, Karen and Jim. Emily loved

spending time

with her grandchildren, Megan, James and

Samantha. Emily was a kind person who never said anything negative about anyone and was a generous, quiet and loving person. We, her children, have memories of camping, riding bikes, hiking and being loved by the greatest woman in the world. Mom, our hearts are broken right now. Knowing you are with Dad again is what helps us move on.

Cremation has taken place and private service will be held on Friday, June 30th, 2017 at the Santa Fe National Cemetery.
