Lottie Coles-Whitfield was born December 1, 1939 to the late Willis and Nora Coles in Columbus, Ohio. She departed this life on October 13, 2020 at Smith’s Mill Health Campus at the age of 80 years old.
Lottie was a proud graduate of Central High School and grew up in what was then known as “Flytown”. She loved going to the “Flytown” Reunion and seeing old friends.
Lottie was a faithful member of Pennsylvania and Collins, Washington and Donaldson and now the Church of Christ of the Apostolic Faith where she sang in the choir and traveled with the Apostolic Clefs. She was an avid member of the late Sis Lettie Logan’s Sunday School Class.
Lottie loved to bake mystery cakes where family would have to guess what was in it. To our surprise we were getting our vegetables. After graduating high school, she went to work at St. Anthony’s Hospital which transitioned to Park Medical Center which is now Ohio State University East where she retired after 41 years.
Lottie is preceded in death by her parents, Willis and Nora Coles; sisters Zetra Coles, Anna Haynes and Nora Coles Smith; brothers Willis, Henry, Karl Coles and nephew Keith Coles Sr.
She leaves to cherish her memory sister Martha Walls (deceased three days later after Lottie); adopted sister Madlyn Blackburn; daughter Tisha Coles; granddaughter Karleigh Coles and adopted granddaughter Indigo Stanley; nieces Betty Chavis and Gwen Coles; nephews Raleigh “Bud” (Joan) Stepter, Kevin Coles and Harold “Jammie” Coles; a host of nieces and nephews; special friends Brenda Walker of Las Vegas, NV, Sis. Patricia Polley, Wilbur “Pippy” Favours, Curtis and Diane Harris and the St. Anthony’s Hospital/Park Medical Center Alumni along with a host of other relatives and friends.
