Karen Jean Coyle

June 23, 1969 ~ July 14, 2020 (age 51)


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Karen Jean Coyle our loving and devoted mother and friend to all whose lives she touched on July 14-2020. Born June 23-1969 in Xenia, Ohio to David Gwin and Frances Bellamy. She was preceded in death by her husband Patrick Coyle, her dad David Gwin, and stepdad Raymond Gifford.

Karen was a woman of  tremendous strength all the way up to her passing. If anything, she passed that strength onto her two daughters. She was known for her huge heart that she wore on her sleeve proudly. She had a contagious smile with the cutest dimples. She had the best shoulders to cry on. She was a true definition of a best friend.

Karen was a proud mom of two daughters Amanda (Andrew) and Jessica (Ryan). She was a devoted mamaw/grandma to seven grandkids Ashlyn, Aubree, Aileea, Andrew, Arieana, Aydenn, and Kolsyn. She was a big sister to Lee, Alexa, and Corey. She also loved her stepsisters and stepbrothers that joined our already huge family. She loved having the title Aunt Karen to Sara, Ryan, Page, Chase, Nick, Jacob, and Brooklyn. Family meant everything to her. She loved everyone more than any of us know.

Karen moved to Tennessee in 2013 to turn her life around. She did just that. She built a life for herself  in Tennessee.  She made many new friends and loved her coworkers. She enjoyed the beautiful mountain views and boat rides on the lake.

She will be sorely missed by all who loved her dearly and will never forget her charm, undying love, and caring for them. Her love is so big she will be saving a life or more through the organ donation program. We can’t wait to share whose life she helped save when the time comes.

Karen will be laid to rest down the road from one of her favorite mountain views in Tennessee.  The family invites you to a graveside service located in Dandridge, TN at Resthaven Memorial Gardens on July 24th 2020 at 4:00 PM.
