GBRA member Coral Weston has passed

Coral Weston passed this morning. As Joanie stated, “Coral loved her Lord, and is happy and whole again with Him in heaven, nevermore to suffer.” For those if you who never had the opportunity to meet Coral, she was a great lady, a woman of profound character and endurance; brilliant, accomplished, and possessed of a quick-witted sense of humor. Coral was a long time, loyal member of GBRA, her beautiful smile and twinkling eyes will be missed.

Your memories of her are welcome in the comments.


The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,
and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead;
and their passing away was thought an affliction
and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
But they are in peace.
For if to others, indeed, they seem punished,
yet is their hope full of immortality;
Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
because God tried them
and found them worthy of himself.
As gold in the furnace, he proved them,
and as sacrificial offerings he took them to himself.
In the time of their judgment they shall shine
and dart about as sparks through stubble;
They shall judge nations and rule over peoples,
and the LORD shall be their King forever.
Those who trust in him shall understand truth,
and the faithful shall abide with him in love:
Because grace and mercy are with his holy ones,
and his care is with the elect.

Wisdom 3:1-9

  1. Coral was the last surviving cousin of my father, Richard Leon Corser. She was the daughter of his uncle Frank Corser, who drove a herd of mustangs from Arizona into Canada in the early 1920’s and stayed. After Frank Corser’s death in the 1930’s, Coral’s Canadian mother re-married an American, training as a pilot in Alberta, prior to America entering WWII. Coral along with her older brother Frank, and her mother, relocated to California with her step-father. Both Coral and her brother Frank were born U.S. citizens. Their father Frank had taken his wife by automobile, 600 miles to Spokane Washington, to give birth. I was privileged to get to know Coral after she and my father re-established a relationship in their senior years. She was a wonderful friend and a positive influence in my life. She will be sorely missed and long remembered.

  2. Coral’s bright, happy spirit will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Her positive attitude uplifted and inspired everyone she touched. May we all be encouraged to carry on the effort to which she so fervently devoted herself.

  3. Coral lived down the street from me and was the sweetest neighbor. She had such amazing strength to keep going, no matter what the situation. I always loved talking to her and hearing of all the adventures she and her husband had. I miss her so much but know that she is at peace now and I’m sure is with all her dogs that she adored so much and have passed before her.

    • Dear Lynn,
      I too am a neighbor of Coral (living just two blocks away on Lowell). Our experiences in knowing her sound similar, though I knew her only a bit more than a year. I would love to get acquainted with you as I too, miss her now and was unable to attend her services. Please email me so we can make contact.
      Thank you.

  4. Deer Coral, I remember the first time we talked in 2016 when I was representing the presidential campaign. You are a great lady it will be truly missed. Your strength and endurance to overcome set such an example for me. This year we have lost many great ones including you. May you rest in peace and be remembered by those whom you touched so much.
