Coerr died on November 22, 2010 at the age of 88. Both she and Wymberly were cremated.


She is perhaps best known for her book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, published in 1977. It told the story of Sadako Sasaki, who was diagnosed with leukemia due to complications from the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima when she was two years old. She is told that folding a thousand paper cranes will make her well.


She was married to the by then former 1962-1965 U.S. Ambassador to Uruguay, Wymberly DeRenne Coerr (1913–1996) from 1965 until his death from Parkinson’s disease in 1996. He was a career diplomat, and she travelled with him to a number of countries, including foreign posts in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Philippines, and Brazil. Coerr both wrote and illustrated her first book in 1945, although she did not begin to publish her work until the 1960s. Her later works included children’s books, philanthropy, and giving lectures at American universities and overseas. After Wymberly’s death, she became more reclusive and stayed at private residences in Pebble Beach, California and Henderson, Nevada.
