Sister Sarah "Biddy" Coatney
Sarah Coatney, affectionately known as "Biddy" was born to Ollie and Sherman Coatney on July 31, 1932 in Hosston, Louisiana. Biddy attended paradise Baptist Church and although she wasn't able to attend as often as she wanted, she remained faithful to beliefs and always contributing in lieu of.
During the early morning hours of July 8, 2019, God released Biddy from the loving shell of her body and sprouted her as a beautiful butterfly to join her mother, father, daughter Betty Ruth Coatney, son David "Tippy" Coatney, sister Carrie Taylor, brothers Andrew and James Coatney and grandchildren Katina, Brian, Donnie, and Kent. She was also welcome through Heaven's gate by her nieces, nephews and a host of other family members with smiles, hugs, and kisses.
Biddy was a loving sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend to all who came into contact with her. There isn't one child in the family, she hasn't put a hand on and raised or spread her love to. She was loved dearly by the entire family, but we understand God saw fit for her to rest because her race was run, and her course was finished.
