After a glorious life filled with wonderful memories, friends, and family, she passed away at the age of 65. Ms. Coger was born on September 6, 1945, to William Perry "Bud" Duke and Jackie Duke, who both preceded her in death. She had a sister, Allison Mescha, who lives with her spouse, John, in Miami Lakes, FL. She had a brother, William "Bill" Duke, who lives in Atlanta with his spouse, Maddy, and daughter, Allie. Ms. Coger retired from the Alabama Dept. of Public Safety in 2010 after 28 years of dedicated service. She enjoyed every moment of her time there and was blessed with an overwhelming number of dear friends. Upon retirement, she moved to Daviston, AL to surround herself with her "little angels", Mary Carol, Clark, Becca, Katie, and Jenna. They all loved and will miss "Moma Dale". Her spouse, Hugh Coger, and step-mother, Ruth Duke Young, also preceded her in death. She is survived by her step- daughter, Natalie Haynes and husband, Joe, of Daviston; step-sons, Shane and Patrick Coger, both of Alexander City and her six grandchildren, Emily Rasbury (Mark), Sabrina Wood (Teron), Marshall Coger, Skylar Coger, Christopher Coger and Kevin Coger. She is also survived by her long time devoted friend, W.T. Smith of Greenville. Ms. Coger's smile could light up a room, and her laughter was contagious. She could remember everyone's name and was truly a loving, caring, and genuine lady who was a blessing to all that met her. Memorial messages may be sent to the family at www.radneyfuneralhome.c om.
