Obituary for QUEENIE L. COLEMAN

Queenie Loretta Rice Coleman was born on March 20, 1941 in Huntington, MD to the late Mary Coates Jenkins and the late Wilson Rice. She departed this life at the Calvert Nursing Center in Prince Frederick, MD on December 24, 2017. Queenie received infant baptism, attended Sunday School and attended Patuxent United Methodist Church in Huntingtown, MD during her childhood years. She received her education in Calvert County Public Schools and graduated from W. S. Brooks High School in Prince Frederick, MD in 1959.

Queenie was always a hardworking provider for her family. As a young woman, one of her first jobs was a caretaker for a disabled little boy named "Jay", who she adored until his passing. This is when she discovered the joy of providing childcare for many children (too many to name), some who are now grown and still were a part of her recent life. She also worked several jobs as a cook at restaurants located in Calvert and Prince Georges Counties. After retiring, Queenie enjoyed driving friends and family to the doctors, out shopping, or just out for a fun day of going to the movies with her kids, grandson De'Von, and Grandmother-in-law, Juanita Howard, who she loved dearly.

On September 7, 1968, Queenie married Thomas Coleman, Jr. and joined Carters' United
Methodist Church in Friendship, MD. She loved to sing all her life, but her passion grew for
singing when she joined Carters' Senior Choir and The Love Ye One Another Chorus. Two of
her favorite hymns to sing lead were "I'm Bound for Mt. Zion" and "One Day at a Time". Queenie was President of the United Methodist Women, Superintendent of the Sunday School, an Usher, and worked in the church kitchen as an excellent cook for at least 35 years until her health started to decline.

Queenie enjoyed caring for her house plants, entertaining at her home, hosting dinners, cookouts, and birthday parties for her family and friends. Her specialties were sweet potato and white potato pies that she loved to give as gifts during the holidays.

Queenie leaves to cherish her memory a husband, Thomas Coleman Jr., son, Sean Coleman;
daughter, Dora Jean Mackall (Glen); grandchildren, De'Von Brown Sr., Collin Coleman, Korri
Willis, Rishaad Naylor and Amber Williams; great-grandchildren, De'Von Brown Jr., Layla
Brown, Amori Castro, Elijha Williams, Noah Dickens, Rishaad Naylor, Jr., Chase DeJesus,
Carter Naylor, Chloe Naylor and King Naylor; sisters, Delores Boyd (Grant), Mary Rice-Burrell,
Ann Jenkins, Joyce Jones, Martha Jones, and brother, Ernest Rice; sister-in-law, Lynn
Patterson (Leon, Sr.); special aunts, Sarah Coates, Bertiner Howard, Thelma Howard, and Great Aunt Delano Pratt; uncles, Ellsworth Curtis and Lewis Howard; Godchildren, Hope Boyd (who preceded her in death), Angie Curtis, Camille Chambers, Ashley Wood, and Ramera Carpenter; special niece, Bridgett Wallace; best friend, Cynthia Chambers; special long-time friends, Nannie Jones, Ravia Nero, Willa Jones, Laverne Jeffries, and Marydell Jones; caring neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Spriggs, and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
