Louise McCoy Obituary
Louise Valentine McCoy

Louise Valentine McCoy, 79, of Cambridge, N.Y., died at her home January 7, 2014. Louise was born in Durham, NC, the daughter of Ruth Spafford and J. Manson Valentine, Ph.D. Following her graduation from Bennington College in 1956, Louise lived much of her life in the Northeast. Her exploring and curious nature was evident in her engagement in many different pursuits, including teaching Montessori preschool, organic gardening, natural health care, lapidary work, playing the flute and piano, cartooning, writing, spinning, weaving, and preserving nature. She is survived by her husband of 42 years, Dr. William Franklin McCoy, her children Sharon Fitzgerald, Darien Fitzgerald (Kate Wheeler), Eleyne Fitzgerald, and Chris McCoy (Valerie), and 7 grandchildren. She is also survived by her younger siblings Josephine Harris, Helen Waite, Jim Valentine, Wilfred Wittmeyer, and their families. A private service will be held in Bedford, N.Y. at a later date. The family invites thoughts and memories of Louise to be shared at www.ackleyrossfuneralhome.com .
