Mary “June” Coulter Walker Daniels passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 20, 2020, and went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ in her heavenly home. “Short”, as her family called her, was born on Four Dollar Row in Walland, Tennessee on March 24, 1930. When she was six years old her family moved to the farm at Coulter Bridge. She loved life on the farm with her sister and brothers and could often be found picking strawberries and fresh vegetables from the garden, especially tomatoes. She sometimes helped with getting the cows in, riding mules, playing in the hay loft, swimming in the river, and helping her mother clean house. Life was always busy and Sunday fun with the 26 Coulter cousins was a wonderful time for her and her family. June graduated from Walland High School, attended Maryville College, and completed her education at Knoxville Business College. She retired from Proffitt’s Department Store in 1995 where she served as head of the accounting, accounts payable department, and was loved by all who worked under her.
