Miss Coker was born Dec. 21, 1987, in Shawnee, Oklahoma, to Steven Britt Coker and Jina Carol (Hubbell) Becker. She was a 2006 graduate of Tecumseh High School, and was currently attending the University of Central Oklahoma where she was studying nursing and nutrition.
She loved her family and being with her friends, playing sports, dancing and music. She loved being outdoors.
She is survived by her mother and her spouse, Jina and Mike Becker of Ada; her father, Steve Coker of Tecumseh; a brother, Tyler Story of Ada; grandparents JoAnn and Milton Dickson of Shawnee, Darrell and Elaine Coker of Tecumseh and J.C. Hubbell of Meeker; great-grandmother Charlcie Guinn; uncles and spouses Johnny and Candi Hubbell and Kerry and Tracey Dickson; aunts Mindy Becker, Michelle Becker, Toni Chaffin and her husband James, and Melissa Videon and her husband Dave; cousins Nicole Videon, Sam Videon, Jessica Videon, Jordan Videon, Alex Dickson, Morgan Dickson, Brayden Hubbell, Eric Chaffin, Brian Chaffin, Braiden Chaffin and Samantha Chaffin; numerous friends and other family members.
Coker was killed in an accident last Wednesday (July 21) that seriously injured three other young people. Two of the victims of the accident are still hospitalized in critical condition. Colton Chance Medlock, 18, of Earlsboro and Britton Chase Snider-Jones, 20, of Shawnee, are at OU Medical Center. Both are known by their middle names, Chance and Chase.
A fourth person in the car, which collided with a Peterbilt truck on U.S. 177 in Lincoln County, was Crissy Carpenter, 19, of Shawnee. She has been released from the hospital, according to press reports.
The Highway Patrol said the Mazda the four were in was westbound on 1060 Road in Lincoln County and failed to stop at a stop sign, striking the driver's side of the truck driven by Michael Kinnamon, 56, of Meeker at 3:13 a.m. He was not injured.
The Highway Patrol is still investigating who was driving the car, but said Coker and Medlock were ejected. None of the passengers were wearing seat belts, officers said, but an airbag did deploy.
Funeral services for Coker, a 2006 graduate of Tecumseh High School and student at the University of Central Oklahoma, were held Saturday.
