In 1954, Mrs. Coulter married her husband, Tom, with whom she logged numerous nautical miles aboard the Miss Nan throughout the eastern United States, Gulf of Mexico and St. Croix River.

Mrs. Coulter enjoyed music, performing arts and hunting for a good yard sale. She was a founding member of the Village Gardenettes in St. Anthony Village and also enjoyed books, painting, playing bridge and collecting seashells.

Mrs. Coulter is survived by her husband, Tom; daughters Nancy Phillips and Melissa Swanson; sister, Karen; and four grandchildren.
