ALLYN, Ruth Coakley 88, of Gibsonton, died on Memorial Day, May 28, 2012. Born October 15, 1923 in Utica, NY to Harry and Regina Coakley, Ruth grew up in Albany, NY, where she attended the Academy of Holy Names and the College of Saint Rose. She met and married her husband, John Allyn, who preceded her in death. After a life as an Army officer's spouse, she moved to Gibsonton in 1970 where she earned a Masters degree and served as a school teacher for many years at the Academy of Holy Names in Tampa. She was a member of Saint Stephen Catholic Church. Ruth was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother; an endearing lady who was selfless, kind, and inspirational to all. She is survived by her sister, Jeanne Foley; daughter, Diane Terhune; two sons, John and Terry Allyn; seven grandchildren, Terri Leto, Natalie Kozminsky, Jeffrey Allyn, Mary Garcia, Johnny, Bobby and Emily Allyn; and two great-grandchildren, Reagan Kozminsky, Sam Leto.
