Carolyn Steed Coleman, 74, went to be with the Lord on July 5, 2017 at Magnolia Regional Health Center after a long, courageous battle with two strokes and complications from double pneumonia. She passed away at Magnolia Regional Health Center surrounded by her large, loving family. Her final days were difficult ones, but we knew she was ready to meet her God in Heaven. She was reunited with loved ones who have gone on before her. There will be no more pain and suffering.
We have so many wonderful memories of our sister, wife, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. She was loved by all who knew her, especially the many patients she assisted during her many years as dental assistant to Dr. Buddy Biggers and Dr. Robert Crowe and her family who looked forward to her wonderful cooking.

Carolyn was born August 9th, 1943 to Herman E Steed and Jewel Reid Steed in Sunflower County.

Carolyn graduated from Indianola High School in Indianola, MS and promptly married the love of her life, Joe Coleman of Corinth. The next two years were spent living at Mississippi State University as Jody finished his college career and then on to Corinth where they lived for their entire marriage. Her love for "State" was evident in her everyday life. She was a true "Dawg" fan. She has left a legacy of love and devotion to her grandchildren who she loved unconditionally.

She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, Herman "Sonny" Steed Jr. and Randy Steed and a nephew, Mitch Mitchell.

She is survived by her husband, Joe H. "Jody" Coleman; son, Kevin Coleman (Tina), daughter, Amanda Coleman, three granddaughters, Annalese Burns (Clay), Cortney Wilbanks, and Margie Lynn Coleman; grandson, Clint Coleman, two step-grandchildren, Mary Deaton (Dusty) Holcomb and Jim Deaton and two great grandchildren, Dayton Burns and Darby Burns; step-great grandchild, Teagan Holcomb; a sister, Ellen Steed Mitchell (Billy) of Greenwood, three brothers, Jerry Steed (Charlene) of Greenville, MS, Melvin Steed (Gay) of Corinth, Carl Ray Steed (Terri) of Baytown , TX, three dear aunts and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Funeral Home with Bro. Warren Jones and Dr. Leonard Pratt officiating.

Family will receive friends Saturday from 12:00 to service time.
