December 31, 1953 ‒ March 25, 2018
MANSFIELD: Coleen Lynn Behr, 64, of Mansfield passed away Sunday, March 25, 2018 in the Kobacker House following a brief and courageous battle with cancer.
The daughter of Joseph H. and Florence Jean (Kennedy) Daugherty, Coleen was born December 31, 1953 in Butler County, Pennsylvania. After moving to Ohio, Coleen graduated from Madison High School.

From 1983-the summer of 2017, Coleen assisted Michael in the operations of Joe Behr Plumbing and Heating.
Some may have called Coleen ornery, strong willed or determined (perhaps even a little stubborn), the truth is she was confident in all aspects of life. A great cook, she also enjoyed sewing and reading.
Coleen was a member of Resurrection Parish where she had been a member of the choir.
Coleen is survived by her devoted husband Michael J. Behr of Mansfield; sons Matthew (Mary) Behr of Mansfield, Aaron Behr of Lexington, and Joshua (Jessica) Behr of Mansfield; grandchildren Aiden, Ember, and Gabriel; brother Joseph Daugherty of Mansfield; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
She was preceded in death by her parents.

Funeral services will be Thursday at 11am in Resurrection Parish, 2600 Lexington Avenue, Lexington, Ohio 44904. The Rev.
