Patricia Darlene McCoy

April 24, 1945 ‒ December 23, 2018

Marion, Ohio

Patricia Darlene McCoy, age 73, returned to her heavenly home Sunday, December 23, 2018 at 12:37 am.  Her devotion was to the lord, who supported her and her struggles and gave her peace.

On April 24, 1945, Pat was born in Pittsburgh, California, one of four children, to the late Ivan and Opal Clark.  Pat was immersed in Jesus Christ and her faith was in the Lord.  Pat shared her love and faith for the Lord through all the children she raised.  She showed to others what it was like to have a mother of Christ.

She married her best friend and yelling partner, William Basil McCoy, on April 14, 1966 who welcomed her home to heaven’s gate with their oldest son, Joe McCoy.

Left to cherish her memory is her dog, Max; children, Sheila Stephonson, John McCoy, Karen Curry, Lena Waddell, and Bill Curry; two grandchildren that were always by her side making her coffee the right way, Joshua Cox and Kialy Feightner; grandchildren, Jeffrey, Jessica, Bryan, Patrick Curry and Connor Feightner, and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held at Snyder Funeral Homes, GUNDER/HALL Chapel on Sunday, December 30, 2018 from 2 until a 4 pm funeral service with Rev. Chester Hancock officiating.  Burial will follow at 11 am Monday, December 31, 2018 at Chapel Heights Memory Gardens.  Following the funeral, there will be pot luck dinner in the basement of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 540 Windsor Street.

Her family gratefully accepts flowers and donations to the funeral home.

  • Jessica, Lena, Shelia, Bryan, Josh and the whole family we are so sorry for your loss. Granny was an amazing woman and like a grandmother to me and the boys. She will be missed dearly.


  • Sheila, Lena and Johnny, I just want you to know that your mom was a huge fun part of my growing up. I loved her so very much. I loved coming to Ohio and staying with you all. I dislike the fact that life and distance has separated us all over the years but I will always cherish the precious time I got to spend with you and her. Love to the entire family.

  • Dear granny
    You were only the best. I miss you so much! Sorry I didn’t call more. But I will always treasure my 5 and under memories of you taking me shopping so on.

    I love you so much.



  • I love you with all my heart Granny. From the toys you used to get me and the others when you worked at meijers to when you came down to Florida to relax you always remained the same. My deepest regrets are that I wasn’t there when you left and when we will say goodbye. With all my love and with your inspiration to do good things.


  • A wonderful woman with a beautiful heart is what I most remember about Pat. That is the memory that I will cherish of her. My condolences to the family. I love you and miss you Pat.

  • Pat was always willing to listen and then tell you honest advice. Sometimes this would be shared loudly, always honestly (about how silly your choices may have been–no, were…), and then there was that soft sweet embrace of a hug and a laugh with soft spoken wisdom about how it would be all right to go on forward in life. Next was that sensation that showed you that although you were not perfect, you were very loved. Unconditional love is a love that can be a challenge to give, but Pat had that for everyone and it is displayed through her legacy. That gift lives on in her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, neices, nephews, extended and adopted family and friends. We love and miss you, and will be expecting to hear that advice and hugs when we see you again. Thank You for your wonderful Love. Our condolences to your family in this time of mourning. With Love, from Stephanie, Josh, Kiershayla, and Shilah Harruff.
