Plott, Coy - Charlotte  
Coy Walter Plott CHARLOTTE - Coy Walter Plott, 77, of Charlotte, passed away unexpectedly on November 20, 2014, as a result of complications from a stroke. He was born May 21, 1937 in Cabarrus County to the late Gertrude and Hugh Plott. He graduated from Pfeiffer University in 1959, as a proud member of Pfeiffer's first soccer team, and was especially proud of having scored the team's first goal in school history. Coy's hard work and determination led to a 50-year career in the insurance industry. As an independent agent, he quickly established himself as a member of the Million Dollar Round Table and received numerous other awards. More important than the success and awards, Coy was grateful for the countless number of friendships founded along the way.

He spent many years of his life serving others as a loyal member of the Charlotte East Rotary Club. He was proud of becoming a Paul Harris Fellow.

Coy enjoyed a rich and rewarding life, yet nothing surpassed his love for his family and spending time with them. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and son-in-law. He enjoyed travel, spending time on the coast and happy times on the dance floor. He was an enthusiastic, and sometimes overzealous, fan at his grandchildren's sporting events and other activities. He always had his camera in hand to capture his most special moments. His passion for sports and children was evident, especially during his Park Sharon and Southpark Youth League coaching days. Coy will always be remembered for his friendly demeanor and kind heart. Married for 47 years, Coy is survived by the love of his life, Jackie; his three children: Kelly Plott and his wife Shana of Charlotte, and their children Patrick, Emma and Harrison; Missy Kersting and her husband Jim of Mount Pleasant, SC, and their two children Jack and Lucy; and Chad Plott and his wife Debbie of Mount Pleasant, SC, and their daughters Caroline and Claire, and his beloved mother-in-law, Doris Moore, of Charlotte.

Roach, Patricia - Columbia  
Patricia Lawrence Roach COLUMBIA - Patricia Lawrence Roach, 90, passed away peacefully on November 20, 2014, at Palmetto Baptist Hospital. She had been surrounded by her family throughout the week. Patty was born in Anamosa, Iowa, the daughter of Lloyd Dean and Catherine Lawrence and the sister of Cappy, whom she adored and idolized throughout her life. She grew up in Columbia and graduated from the University of South Carolina with majors in biology and chemistry. At USC, she served as a member of the cheerleading squad, a sister in Kappa Delta sorority and was crowned Miss Columbia. She was married to Dr. Daniel Michael Roach and they had six children: Pamela Cakora (Michael) of Columbia, Patricia Polk (Jim) of Greensboro, Daniel Michael Roach, Junior (Sharon) of Columbia, Florence Carter (Fred) of Florence, Gigi Farmer (George) of Greenville, and Laura Gaines (Will) of Charlotte. At the time of her death, she had ten grandchildren: Patricia Cakora, Graham Cakora (deceased), Brad Polk, Catherine Roach, Virginia Roach, Luke Carter, Marie Farmer, Gray Gaines, Rob Gaines, and Whit Gaines. Patty was an intellectually vibrant woman, imbued with a strong sense of independence and self-reliance. She was a loving, affectionate mother and grandmother. She devoted much of her life to raising and nurturing her family, and the children and grandchildren cherished every opportunity to spend time with her. An avid reader, her literary interests were broad and extensive. She read not simply for entertainment but to enhance her knowledge and cultivate her appreciation for new ideas. She was also a consummate bridge player, competing with enthusiasm well into her eighties and enjoying every game, more often for the companionship than the competition. Patty was a strong proponent of education and encouraged each of her children to acquire college degrees. All of them did, sustained by her advocacy and support. Ever the family matriarch, she was also determined that her entire family acquire an appreciation for the heritage of the Lawrence and Roach families. She enjoyed reminiscing about this extended family in her later years- always with wit, affection, and adulation. Patty leaves a legacy characterized by dignity, generosity and love, and she raised children and grandchildren who adored her for instilling those virtues in each of them. The family is deeply appreciative of those who provided care and assistance to Patty in the last years of her life: her loving grandson Graham Cakora, Agape, Atria, Heartland, and Palmetto Baptist and its Hospice Care. She was a member of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. A memorial service will be held in the sanctuary at 2:00pm on Monday, November 24, 2014. In lieu of flowers, contributions should be made to the Oliver Gospel Mission. Expressions of sympathy may be left at www.southcarolinacremation.com .

Zanga, Catherine - Charlotte  
Catherine Ann Zanga CHARLOTTE - On March 11, 1973, the world was made better with the birth of Catherine Ann Zanga to Joseph and Christine Zanga in Richmond, Virginia. She went on to excel at debate, as well as academically at Freeman High School in Henrico County, VA. She continued her excellence at the University of Virginia, where as an Echols Scholar she studied this and that, captaining the UVA fencing team (just debate with a finer point). After graduating with a BA in Political and Social Thought, she attended UVA Law School. After graduating, she moved to Washington, DC where she worked unhappily as a private sector attorney. It was during this time that she met the love of her life, Hyong Yi of Amish Country, Pennsylvania. By the way, he wasn't Amish, he just happened to be Korean raised in Amish country. She took him to a strange Russian play that made no sense, but that could also explain their love. In a bold courageous move, she said it first and after a morning and an afternoon of thought, the numbskull reciprocated, and moved to Boston. But their two souls were like stiff twin compasses are two. Her soul, the fixed foot, made no show to move, but does, if does the other. After proposing marriage twice and winging some verbal essays on why they should be married, she accepted on a Tidal Basin bench by the Jefferson Memorial late one night. And he promptly moved back to Northern Virginia. Beginning a career in public service, she took a pay cut to work for the United States Office of Special Counsel. Wanting to be more hands on, she took another pay cut to work as an Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney in Fairfax County, VA. Deciding that a further paycut was in order, she moved with her husband to Charlotte, North Carolina. Here, she produced her best work. She passed the North Carolina State Bar Exam while nine months pregnant, receiving the letter she passed the bar on the same day as the birth of daughter Anna. Thinking it was easy, she then proceeded to have a son Alex three years later, which changed her mind about raising children being easy. As a professional in Charlotte, she worked as an Assistant DA specializing in domestic violence in Gaston County and as a Police Attorney for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg PD while raising two kids and a husband. She did service through the Junior League of Charlotte and attended St. Peter's Catholic Church in Charlotte. She loved science fiction, had ambition to travel the world, and sought justice for the meek and weak in this world. But most importantly, she loved her family and life with a firmness that made our family circle, and makes us end where we began with Catherine Ann Zanga. The world today grieves over her passing, but after a 21 month battle with ovarian cancer it was time. She is survived by her husband and children, her parents, and her brother Joseph, Jr. Mass of Ressurection will be at 10:00 AM, Tuesday, November 25, 2014, at St. Peter's Catholic Church, 507 South Tryon St., Charlotte, NC 28202. Inurnment will follow in the church columbarium. The family will receive friends on Sunday, November 23, 2014, from 3:00 until 7:00 PM at Hankins & Whittington Funeral Service, 1111 East Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28203. Arrangements are in the care of Hankins & Whittington Funeral Service; please share condolences online at www.hankinswhittington.com .
