Colleen 'Coke' Hough

92nd Birthday

Colleen “Coke” Hough was born May 8, 1929, in Snohomish, Wash., to Tena and Alex Wood. She is the third of six daughters in the family.

She was raised in Snohomish, and moved to Coeur d’Alene, where she graduated in the class of 1948, and has lived here for more than 65 years.

She attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, before meeting Robert “Bob” Hough, who was working in Provo, as a radio broadcast journalist. They married in Coeur d’Alene on Aug. 12, 1950.

She enjoys going for walks, swimming, and spending time with family and friends.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, the family is not able to hold a birthday celebration this year. Her children, Terry, Bruce, John, Scott and Wendy, wish her a very Happy 92nd Birthday!
