Dr. Genevieve Coale, passed away peacefully on February 18th after a brave struggle with cancer. Dr. Coale was a retired educator and school superintendent in the Spring-Ford School District. She served the school district in various capacities for 26 years and later as Superintendent for 10 years (1995-2005). Under Dr. Coale's leadership as Superintendent, she spearheaded many initiatives and projects that improved the district's educational programs. Known as an innovator, Dr. Coale utilized the power of technology for initiatives in K-12 education resulting in elevating Spring-Ford students' achievements and testing advances. Recognizing the need for crisis intervention, Dr. Coale guided the development of the district's first crisis intervention and prevention program. Dr. Coale also modernized school infrastructure and oversaw the completion of eight construction and renovation projects in eight years and worked to establish partnerships between the school district and the business community. Born on June 4, 1946 , Genevieve graduated from West Chester University in 1968 with a Baccalaureate in Education and later obtained her Doctorate in Education from Temple University. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, James Coale and cousins, Chuck Manfredonia (Andrea Strang) of Maryland, Dr. John Manfredonia (Beverly Brown) of Arizona and Carole Comfort (Alex Hooper) of New Jersey. She will be remembered for her kindness, generosity, and selflessness, always there to listen and offer advice. She is in our hearts, and we will have a small celebration of her life in the springtime. Details will be available here when scheduled. Contributions in her name can be made to Spring-Ford Educational Foundation, 857 South Lewis Road, Royersford, PA 19468.
