Susan Elizabeth McCoy, 1943-2016

Susan (Sue) Elizabeth McCoy, loving and devoted wife and mother, passed away on May 2, 2016, at home in Kenwood. She is survived by her husband of 51 years Dale McCoy, daughters Jenna and Kim, son Scott, and grandsons Jarod and Kevin. Born and raised in San Francisco, Sue graduated from Lowell High School and SF State University where she met and married her soulmate Dale. After moving all over the country and finally coming back to California, Sue fell in love with Kenwood and lived here for the last 24 years, enjoying frequent visits from friends and family, and spoiling her two grandsons for the last 15 years.

Shortly after arriving in Kenwood she found her spiritual home at the small Kenwood Community Church where she served as Chairwoman of the Board of Trustees, Deacon and founding member of the woman’s group WOW. She was active in her book club, “lunch bunch,” and “ladies bridge.” She also served as past president of Sonoma Newcomers.

Sue was outgoing, open hearted, a great hostess, and above all, she loved her children and grandsons with all her heart! She will be forever loved and remembered by her devoted husband, children, grandsons, and friends. Memorial services will be held on Sunday, June 5, at 2 p.m. at the Kenwood Community Church, 9637 Channing Row, Kenwood, CA 95452.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations may be made to the Kenwood Community Church or the American Cancer Society.
