Gifts & Memorial Donations



 Linda Sue (Paxton) McCoy was promoted to the sunny banks of sweet deliverance on  January 21, 2024, at the age of 75 in Wheeling, West Virginia.  Linda was born on October 6, 1948, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  She was a prayer warrior, faithful wife, wonderful mother, caring sister, and the best maw maw.

Linda is survived by her loving husband, Harvel McCoy, her children Melanie Armstrong (Jay), Brian McCoy, and Dana McCoy, her sisters Donna Graham (Don) and Debbie Williams (Wayne), a half-sister Enjoli (Rocky) Gathright and her brothers Bill Paxton and Stevie Paxton. She was also adored by her granddaughters Natalie Armstrong, Nicole Armstrong, and Paisley Aschoff.

She is preceded in death by her loving parents, William and Dorothy Paxton, along with two sisters, Peggy Hartwick and Elizabeth Smith.

Linda graduated from Oran High School and a few days later married the love of her life on June 26, 1966 and they shared 57 years together.

 She was a remarkable seamstress, talented musician and singer, fabulous cook and baker of her infamous cinnamon rolls.

Linda was a faithful member of Calvary UPC in Jackson, Missouri for 22 years and Cornerstone Apostolic Church in Wentzville, Missouri for nearly 30 years. After relocating to West Virginia she became a member of New Life Apostolic Church in New Martinsville until the time of her passing. Her love and commitment to God never wavered.

A visitation will be held at Cornerstone Apostolic Church, located at 452 May Rd, Wentzville, MO, at 11 am, followed by a home going celebration at 1 pm, which will be officiated by Reverend Loy McCarty.

Linda Sue McCoy will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Her kindness, love, warm hugs and joyful spirit will forever be remembered.

    Linda and Harvel were dear, lifelong friends of my parents, Sharon and Cletus Pruett. Our families including Melanie, , Brian, and myself, through childhood and teen years, shared visits in others’ homes and vacations together. I have special memories of our time together. Linda was a sweet lady who was loved and cherished. Our hearts grieve with you. She will be missed by family and friends on this earth but there will be a day to be reunited in heaven. We pray for your comfort through God’s love.
