She also enjoyed music, playing the piano, singing, working with flowers, reading, family gatherings, and date night with her sweetheart. During 41 years of marriage she worked as a registered nurse, sold insurance, and assisted her husband at the Nampa IGA Supercenter in the flower department. She is survived by her husband, C. Bruce Coburn; mother, Gwen B. Cole; children, Carie Lynne Coburn, David Bruce Coburn, Darryn Wayne Coburn (Amy Allcott Coburn), Kimberly Ann Ray (Wade L.
