kueteman, pic for TNTCarolyn Coulter Kueteman, 86, of La Marque, Texas, passed away Monday, February 29, 2016. She was born December 21, 1929, in Lockesburg, Arkansas, and resided in La Marque, Texas.
Carolyn was a woman of great faith who brought optimism and determination to her every endeavor. She was an educator who taught in Dequeen, Ark, and La Marque, Texas, for many years; she actively lived her faith in the Methodist community; she was a missionary-at-heart, contributing her hands and heart to local and global efforts; and she was a fierce fan and supporter of her children, family members, fellow educators, and ADK sisters. Often recognized for her efforts, she preferred to operate in the background, helping others shine.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Herman H Kueteman; her parents, Pearl and Tom Coulter; her sisters, Ida Margaret Coulter Stone and Betty Pearl Henderson; and her brother, Tom S. Coulter. She is survived by her son Edward Wayne “Dutch” Kueteman, daughter Karol Kaye Harris and husband, Michael; sisters Myra Clay (and Wayne) and Cindy Hale (and Larry); and a tribe of nieces and nephews: Laurie, Tom, Beth, Melinda, Adrienne, Susie, Ann, Denise, Camille, Mark, Bryan, Kimberly, Myra Katherine, and Gregory.
Carolyn Kueteman is one who can stand before God and say, “I used everything you gave me.” She made a difference.
A Memorial Visitation will be on Thursday, March 3, 2016 from 5pm to 7pm at James Crowder Funeral Home in La Marque, Texas. Interment will be at 10:00am on Saturday, March 5, 2016, at Coulter Memorial Cemetery in Lockesburg, Arkansas.


  1. May your memories of a wonderful Christian help you through this difficult time. We will miss her smile and optimism even though she was in pain. She was a true Alpha Delta Kappa sister. Sincere sympathy, Dorothy Jeffcoat.

  2. Very sorry for your loss. She was my 1st grade teacher at Lamar Elementary where she took so many scared and apprehensive 6 year olds and made us feel secure and loved and looking forward to walking into her classroom each day. She was such a blessing for Lamar and me and she’s never been forgotten. Peace and comfort to all who love her.

  3. I was sad to hear that one of my favorite teachers had passed away. Mrs. Kueteman taught me, or tried her best to teach me German in 1963. I last saw her at a class reunion in 2003. I had not seen her since graduation in 1964. She walk up to me and called my by name. She was always smiling and treated all of us in a very positive way. Mrs. Kueteman was the type of educator that every young person should have in their life. She was a real lady and will be missed.

  7. Not only was she a beloved teacher, she truly was a woman who practiced her faith. I was her student and her aide during 8th grade – a very difficult year when my mother died. She was my rock and supporter.
    She attended the 50th Class reunion of LMHS 1960 in 2010, greeting each of us as tho those 50 years were just yesterday. We were blessed to have her as a middle school teacher and send our condolences to her family.
