Biography

An obituary was published in 1926 when Carrie died. Since it is free from copyright restrictions, the full text is below:
Carolyn Elizabeth Smith Coulter, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ephriam J. Smith, was born at Steamboat Rock, Hardin county, Iowa, on April 18th, 1857 and passed to the Great Beyond on June 6, at her home north of Rifle, ...goitre causing her death. She had reached the age of 69 year, one month and 18 days.
At the age of 10 years she moved from Iowa to Nebraska and two years later to Missouri.
She was united in marriage to Oscar V. Coulter on October 30, 1877, at Center Point, Mo., To this union ten children were born. One of the children died in infancy, one at the age of 10 months, and on June 25, 1920, Harold B., age 21, passed away. Seven children survive her. They are Otto V., Guy R., Mrs. Ofa [Orra] F. Kennedy, Ray E., Rose B., Claude F., and Ted M., all of Rifle. Besides her husband and children she is survived by four grandchildren, and two sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth [Elida] A. Zook of Buffalo, N.Y., and Mrs. Mary J. Wood of Long Beach, California.
Mrs. Coulter received her education in the public schools, except her training for teaching, which was taken in a school for teachers. She taught school for two years at Center Point, Mo., one year in Iowa and about two years in Paxton, Nebraska. During her teaching period at Paxton her son, Otto, was one of her pupils.
Mr. and Mrs. Coulter moved to Fort Collins, Colo., in 1893 and in 1896 to Steamboat Springs, and to Rifle in 1897. In 1900 they bought the ranch which has been their home since 1901.
Mrs. Coulter, when a girl of 14, became a member of the Christian church at Center Point, Mo. Some time before she won a bible as a prize for having committed to memory more Bible verses than any other in the Sunday school. She took the great principles of the Book of Books with her through her long, rich life. She was a great lover of her home--she was industrious and ever put forth an untiring effort for the benefit of her loved ones. She always tried to make the world happier and better. She was a lover of flowers and birds, in fact of all nature. She thoroughly loved and appreciated beautiful Colorado. She often expressed her love for the mountains, even the roughest of them.
