CHARITY CHAMPION: Tributes paid to Bushey ‘champion’ who dedicated herself to charity

 Published on: 20th September 2022   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Tributes have been paid to an inspirational woman from Bushey who died at the end of August after raising more than £50,000 for charity.

Juliet Coffer, who lived with the incurable rare disease called Sarcoidosis, was well known within the Bushey community for her tireless dedication to the charity Sarcoidosis UK.

Before she passed away on August 24, Juliet who was attached to oxygen 24 hours a day took on several walking challenges and caught the attention of national media.

Juliet’s mum Roberta paid tribute to her stating that what came to mind when she thought of Juliet was how inspirational she was.

She said: “She was champion, even though she was in a bad state she continued to champion everything”.

“She was so passionate, and she always fought for what she believed in.”

Her husband Gary also paid tribute to his “amazing wife” Juliet.

He wrote: “Words cannot describe my grief, however, I am so thankful that I met my soul mate and was able to spend 20 supremely happy years with the most kind, wonderful and positive human being, with a razor sharp mind (and tongue).”

At her funeral on August 31 attendees were invited to wear bright colours to celebrate her life, just as Juliet wanted.

Her father, Raymond Coffer, said the family have been touched by the kind messages they’ve received.

He said: “The abiding thread through all those messages was the impact that she had, and continues to have, on those she touched – her honesty, courage, fortitude, kindness and teaching have clearly left a huge mark, emotionally, factually and spiritually, on those she met.”

Juliet’s fundraising page is still open for donations.
