On Friday, Sept. 17, 2021, Junetta Frances McCoy ended her life's journey after struggling for years with dementia, a particularly insidious disease.
Junetta was a rare individual in that she never complained about her circumstances or played the sympathy card for attention. At the very core of her being existed one of the sweetest, kindness beings on Earth. Her family misses her very much.
Junetta was born on Oct. 8, 1937, in Poteau to the late Clarence and Frances Midgley. She was a homemaker and a member of Grand Avenue Baptist Church.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband James McCoy.
Her funeral service will be at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 27, 2021, at Edwards Funeral Home Chapel, Fort Smith, Ark. with interment at Fairview Cemetery.
She is survived by her sister Loretta Midgley Gedosh of Fort Smith, her brother Jim Whiteaker of Albuquerque, N.M., two nieces Pamela Gedosh and her husband Skip of Dallas and Andrea Gedosh of Concord, Calif., and two nephews David Gedosh and Michael Gedosh both of Fort Smith.
