Obituary for Katharina Koin

Katharina Koin, 86, of Naples, FL, passed away unexpectedly, Thursday November 16, 2017, in Physicians Regional Medical Center, Naples, FL.
Born October 28, 1931 in Timisoara, Romania, she was the daughter of the late Pava Latici, and the very loving mother of the late Mike Koin.
She is survived by her many loving family members.
As a tenacious and talented woman, she came to America in 1977. Kaya, as her family lovingly called her, quickly became a well-known coach for the University of San Francisco’s Woman’s Volleyball team, and was instrumental in sending players to the 1964 and 1972 Olympics. She surely made a difference in many young women’s lives with her philosophy of, “ we will play to learn and learn to grow”.
Among her other achievements, she was proud to tell her family and friends stories of her experiences as an art dealer in a prominent gallery in Carmel, California, and her minglings with celebrities.
As a woman of great faith and generosity, she regularly attended Orthodox churches and made contributions to various organizations.
She was a multifaceted and lovely woman who will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
Family and friends are welcome to attend her funeral service Wednesday at 11am, in St. Elijah Serbian Orthodox Church Cemetery Chapel-Hopewell Twp., with Fr. Branislav Golic, officiating.
