Marjorie Jeanette McCoy, 87, of St. Petersburg, FL, formerly of Rutledge, MO passed away in St. Petersburg, FL, on December 31, 2009.

The daughter of Lealand and Effie Dorsey, she was born on October 7, 1922 in Knox County, MO.

Upon high school graduation Jeanette worked for the Schaefer Pen Company for several years supporting the WWII effort and winning many war department awards.

In 1947 she married Stanley McCoy and to this union two children were born.

While her husband engineered for the Santa Fe Railroad she stayed at home, living first in Chicago and later in Nauvoo, IL. She was active in the boys lives during their school years attending P.T.A. and little league baseball games. She stayed busy with activities in her church as well.

In 1979 they made several trips with their camper looking for covered bridges and the perfect fishing lake throughout the Midwest, making friends as they went.

She enjoyed collecting antiques and any crafts of nature.

Her pride and joy were her family, especially the five grandchildren whom she loved to interact with and pass on some of her family values.

Preceding her in death was her parents and her husband in 1989.

She is survived by two sons, Joe (Ann) McCoy of St. Petersburg, FL, and Richard (Mary) McCoy of Naples, FL; five grandchildren, Erin, Tim, Matthew, Richard, and MacKenzey; along with several nieces and nephews.
