      George 'Ted' Coene

      George 'Ted' Coene

      Beaver County Times (PA) - Sunday, October 8, 2017
      Formerly of Rochester

      George T. Coene, better known as Ted Coene, of Redondo Beach, California, was born September 27, 1928, and went to be with the Lord September 18, 2017, due to heart complications.

      Preceding him in death are his parents, Mildred Howe Coene and Henry Theodore Coene; his first wife, Louise, and daughter, Susan.

      Ted is survived by his wife, Andrea McKay; sisters, Marjorie and Carol; sons, Tom and Keith, daughter, Ellen, and nine grandchildren, five greatgrandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

      Ted was born in Rochester, Pa. He spent time in the U.S. Navy and attended Geneva College. Ted married his first wife in June of 1949. They lived in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland, Northern California, LA and Texas, where he worked in the Oil Business, finally settling in Torrance, Calif. Ted worked for the Electric Boat division of General Dynamics, Westinghouse, Stanford Research Institute, and Hydril as a project or division manager. After returning to Torrance in 1986, Ted worked for Lutheran Brotherhood/Thrivent, where he served as a Financial Adviser until retiring at age 84 in 2012.

      While successful in business and proud of being a self-made man who recovered from life's set-backs, Ted would most want to be remembered for the relationships in his life. Lifelong friends were gathered wherever he lived, worked, or worshiped. His influence on others stemmed from his positive outlook, sense of humor, love of offering advice, his (sometimes unfiltered) honesty, and the ability to get things done (from managing projects to home repairs).

      After his retirement, Ted and Andrea enjoyed their love of travel in the states and other countries.

      Mildred H Howe Coene

      Birth: Aug. 4, 1905
      Rochester
      Beaver County
      Pennsylvania, USA
      Death: Feb. 12, 2014

      Mildred H. Coene, 108, a resident of Rochester most of her life, presently a resident of the Franciscan Manor for the past six years, passed away peacefully Wednesday, February 12, 2014, in the Good Samaritan Hospice, Heritage Valley Beaver.

      Born August 4, 1905, in Rochester, she was the only child to the late George A. and Nellie Bowers Howe. She was a member of the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, Rochester, where she belonged to the Women's Bible Study Class and the Elizabeth Circle. She was employed by the former Carver Insurance Agency of Beaver in 1947 and in 1950 she worked in the offices of Drs. Whitehall, Patrick and Taylor. In 1960 Mildred was appointed to fill the unexpired term of her late husband as Rochester Borough Tax Collector, she was then elected to three terms of office and retired in 1975 at the age of 70. She was a 1925 graduate of Rochester High School and then attended Garfield Business School, which was then located in Rochester. She was an employee of the former Freedom Oil Works and on lunch breaks, she and other female employees learned to play bridge. Mildred enjoyed the game and continued to play it throughout her life and as recently as this past year, she still belonged to a bridge club. In addition to her love of bridge, she loved to travel. She had been through the United States, Canada, Europe, the Orient, the Holy Land and Egypt. As a young married woman, she was a member and past president of the Junior Women's Club, which was the first group to transfer to the Senior Club at the age of 30. She helped to organize a child study club and was a charter member of the Charlie's Angels Dance and Exercise Group of New Brighton. All in all, she was a pretty amazing woman and mother.

      She was preceded in death by her husband whom she married in 1928, Henry Theodore Coene, who passed away in 1960. She was also preceded in death by a grandchild, Susan Coene, in 2013, and a former daughter-in-law, Louise Coene.

      Surviving are a son and daughter-in-law, George T. and Andrea Coene, Redondo Beach, CA; two daughters and a son-in-law, Marjorie C. and Frank D'Amico, Beaver, and Carol J. Reynolds, Patterson Twp.; nine grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren, and 26 great-great-grandchildren.

      Friends will be received Thursday, February 20, 2014, from 12 noon to 3 p.m. in the WILLIAM MURPHY FUNERAL HOME INC., 349 Adams St., Rochester. Services will be held at 3:30 p.m. in the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, Rochester. Her pastor, the Rev. Gregory S. Clagg, will officiate.

      Interment will follow in Union Cemetery, Monaca.

      The family wishes memorial contributions be made, in lieu of flowers, to the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, 393 Adams St., Rochester, PA 15074.
