Pamela Jean Coulter Grube , age 61, passed away peacefully on May 29, 2012 at Nexus Specialty Hospital in The Woodlands. Pamela was born on May 16, 1951 in Edna, Texas, to parents Gene and Naomi Shiflett Coulter. The family later moved to Piney Point Village in the Houston Memorial area where Pamela attended Spring Branch public schools, graduating from Memorial High School in 1968. She went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts (Magma Cum Laude) from the University of Houston. Pamela was active in many civic, community and charitable endeavors in Houston before moving to Walden on Lake Conroe in 1995 where she taught high school. Later, she worked in the legal and real estate professions in the greater Houston area. She was most recently associated with Residential Mortgage Services in their offices in Spring. When not working or enjoying time with her friends and family, Pamela was an avid gardener. Pamela is survived by her beloved son, John S. Grube III or Austin, her brother Gregory Coulter of Houston, her brother Michael Coulter of Moyock, North Carolina, longtime companion Al Martinez of Houston and Montgomery, her former husband, John S. Grube, Jr. of Bellville, and a number of nieces, nephews and cousins, as well as a legion of friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Gene and Naomi Coulter, and by her brother Steven Coulter.
Pamela was an intelligent, quick-witted individual always ready to voice her opinion on any variety of topics, sometimes to the dismay but most often to the delight of those around her. She was a fierce advocate for the principles and causes she believed in. Her smile and laughter were contagious. She loved her family and friends mightily, without abandon. Her son John in particular was the lover of her life. The world is a better place for her having passed through it and will be a lesser place in her absence. She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.
A Celebration of Pamela's Life will be held on Friday June 1st, at 3pm at Casher Funeral Home, 801 Teas Road in Conroe.
