I worked with Coila for most of my career at Lockton. She was a beautiful lady with a heart of gold. We both loved our animals and loved talking about them. My prayers are with Diane and Steve and her whole family. God bless.

Coila was one of my favorite people to work with in my career. I loved working with her. Our conversations would usually start as "Pat, can you look at this" and end with sharing family stories. We laughed so hard some times! She was always firm but kind, not an easy thing to do in business. I had so much respect for her just like many others in the insurance industry. I will always treasure the memories of working with her.

Steve and Todd, my heart goes out to you and your whole family. Coila loved you both very much as she talked about you all the time. She was so proud of her grandkids, menagerie, fishing and whatever other hobby she had a mind to pick up. Having worked with her at Lockton gave us lots of opportunities to share about family. She was truly a kind and thoughtful person who will be missed. Praying that all the wonderful memories you shared will comfort you in your loss.

I worked with Coila at Lockton as well but not in her unit! I particularly remembered one Birthday where her husband sent her a funny 🎁 present ! Hope you keep that memory Steve she laughed so hard she had tears rolling down her face! I will miss her witty and humorous side! Rest In Peace hopefully you will see my late husband Angelo and share some memories there!

I, too, worked at Lockton, never with Coila, but, to me, she was the ultimate professional who knew exactly what she was doing and was always kind.

My heartfelt prayers to Diane B and Coila’s family.

I started working for lockton in 1997 after being hired by coila. What a unit we were! I have many fond memories of coila and the silly things she would do. Many laughs. She was a giving person and loved Christmas because she could go crazy with her gifts. Her favorite holiday was Halloween and her house and office would be decorated to the max. She loved her dogs. She gave to many charities but her favorite was wayside waifs. My deepest sympathy to Steve and the rest of her family.
She will be missed but not forgotten!!

Started work at Lockton in 1987 and immediately started working with Coila. Over the years she was my mentor, my boss and one of my dearest, dearest friends. I loved her like a sister and we were that close. There will never be another like her. I loved her so much. My heart goes out to Steve, Todd, Nicky and the boys. She was so proud of Todd and her grandsons.
