She spoke often about her days playing softball, basketball and volleyball during her school days. She was a member of Fortuna Baptist Church in Fortuna, Missouri. She worked several different jobs but the one she was the proudest of was having an in-home daycare for many, many children over the years. Coty was a kind and generous woman who had her children at a very young age and worked incredibly hard to make sure that they were loved and cared for. She could always be counted on to help someone in need. She was protective of her family and would do anything for them. Coty was thrilled with the birth of each new grandchild.
