Frances Roberta Coulter (Taylor) was born on November 24, 1951, to Roberta Blakey Coulter and John Frank Whitmer. Frances was born and raised in Baltimore City, Maryland, where she attended Baltimore City Public Schools.
Frances entered the workforce as a nurse’s aide, then later found her passion as a dental assistant. Frances loved people. She was an amazing dental assistant; many of her patients applauded her professionalism and compassion. Frances was also a great cook and avid fisherman. She owned her own restaurant for a short time: The Rib Shack. Even after her adventure as a restaurant owner, Frances continued to cook and bake for others; she loved to feed people. She was very particular about what should be called “homemade.” Some of her specialties included cabbage rolls, beef stew, stuffed peppers, and smothered pork chops. Later in life, Frances also took up jewelry making. Her creativity shined in her works. She created beautiful necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and anklets.
Anyone who knew “Fran” knew she was off fishing whenever she could. She was a natural fisherman, and was known to embarrassingly out-fish most anyone.
After several years of chronic illnesses, Frances left this earthly life somewhere between March 18, 2021 and March 22, 2021. She is free of physical, emotional, and mental pain. We take solace in knowing she has gone fishing with Jesus.
Frances leaves a daughter, Yolonda R. Lee (K. Timothy), granddaughter, Jordan E. Lee, step-grandson, Kelvin T. Lee Jr, sister, Lonnie M. Coulter-Hedgepeth (late Grady R.), a host of nieces and nephews, and a host of other family and friends.
