Jean Lee Coen, 88, of Glen Dale, WV, died, not so peacefully, on Wednesday, November 2nd at Reynolds Memorial Hospital surrounded by her in shock family.

Jean was born on October 9, 1928 in Benwood, WV, daughter of the late William J. and Margaret L. Schafer of Glen Dale, WV.

In addition to her parents, Jean was preceded in death by her husband Carl S. Coen (aka PapPap).

Jean was a devoted Wife, Mother, Mother-in-Law, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother who kept a very warm and loving home. She never missed a family birthday – keeping all in check with her beautiful words. She was member of St. Jude Catholic Church and Women’s Guild, a feisty Fox News follower, as well as an over-zealous Mountaineer fan, never missing a game (although the channel would be flipped quite often out of fear and frustration).

She leaves behind a quite large semi-dysfunctional family who will miss her, her cooking and who will be forever unforgiving that she didn’t leave behind her special Hungarian Goulash Recipe.

5 Children – Bill Coen of Glen Dale, WV; Robert & Darcy Coen of Morgantown, WV; Leanne Coen of Florence, KY; Patrick & Sarah Coen of Lexington, KY and Michael & Kelly Coen of Morgantown, WV.

14 Grandchildren – Bill Coen of Atlanta, GA; Adrienne Coen of Morgantown, WV; Bryce Coen of Morgantown, WV; Bailey Coen-Tucker of Morgantown, WV; Blair Burns of Fredericksburg, VA; Zachary Brown of Fayetteville, AR; Jared Brown of Portland, OR; Bryan, Cameron and Nathan Coen of Lexington, KY; Alyssa, Ryan, Abbie and Paige Coen of Morgantown, WV.

3 Great-Grandchildren — Jax, Liam and Nico

Her sister, Henrietta Moczek; niece, Maureen & (husband)Jay Hartford, nephew, Harry & (wife)Monica Moczek

Many friends and finally, her two favorite furry grandkids – Cole and Bubba – who forever left their mark on her heart and in her home.

A private “Celebration of Life” will be held during halftime of the West Virginia/Kansas game.

Funeral Services will be 11 a.m., Monday, November 7, 2016 at St. Jude Catholic Church.  Interment to follow in Mount Calvary Cemetery, 1685 National Rd, Wheeling, West Virginia, 26003

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your loved one. May God almighty, father of tender mercies continue to comfort you all (2 Corinthians 1:3 & 4). How so eagerly we all await the fulfillment of God’s promise to completely remove death, tears, mourning, outcry and pain (Revelation 21:4). It is also comforting to know about the resurrection hope for our dead loved ones (John 5:25). May these comforting thoughts strengthen you all. You can find more encouraging thoughts at

The last time I saw Jean was in Kentucky. She, Bill, Rhonda and I were trying to talk some sense into the rest of the family on the ever touchy subject of politics. I think we made some headway. If not we still had a blast. Say hey to Carl for me Jean. Love Sam
