Susan Jean McCoy

March 26, 1961 ~ October 6, 2020 (age 59)



Susan "Sue" J. McCoy, age 59, of Darwin, MN, died on Tuesday October 6, 2020 surrounded by her family at their home on Lake Washington. 


Sue was born in Paynesville, MN March 26th,1961 the daughter of Joan and Val Riley. On Sept. 10th, 1983, Sue (Riley) and Larry McCoy were married in Holy Matrimony at Assumption Catholic Church in Eden Valley. 


Sue worked at the Litchfield Middle School for the last 16 years as both a paraprofessional and in food services and prior to that was a floral designer in the local area.  Her hobbies included going for scenic rides with her husband on their motorcycle, watching a good sunset, finding the next local event (concert, farmer's market, open restaurant), painting, gardening, floristry, seasonal canning, nature in all it's capacities, baking with her beautiful grandchildren and making those around her feel warmer somehow; she was truly listening. Sue's contagious laughter and love of life will live on in all who met her!  Lest we forget her famous Apple Pie or the many friends of her children who called her their second mom!


Sue is survived by her loving husband of 37 years, Larry McCoy; children Jamie (Jon-Paul) Van Loenhout and Riley James (Sara) McCoy; granddaughters Willah Rose and Valentina; sisters Cindy (John) Froehling, Jan (Jerry) Noll, Kim (Kevin) Gabrelcik and brother Mike (Sue) Riley.
