 Retha Ann Parsons Coy, our dear beautiful mother, passed away at the age of 80 years in Bedfordshire, England whilst visiting me, her youngest daughter.  She is survived by her 6 children; Marie Coy Webb, Bill Coy, Doug Coy, Eunice Coy Burus, Tim Coy and Becky Coy Hatt as well as her grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great-grandchild and families.  She is also survived by 2 sisters and 1 brother; Nancy Parsons Plowman, Martha Parsons Sparks and Amos Parsons as well as all of her siblings families.  She is preceded in death by our father William Lou Coy Senior, her parents Harlan and Beaulah Parsons as well as 6 additional siblings, a daughter-in-law, son-in-law, granddaughter and great grandson and  so many other loved ones who were taken much too soon.

 

Our mother was a mother in every sense of the word; a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, and friend.  She was a loving, caring, nurturing, strong, artistic, creative woman who always tried to see the good in everyone she met.  She had so many talents and passions. She always had a special place in her life and heart for children who were not only her own family, but she cared for other families by caring for so many of others children throughout her life.  She was Gods earthbound angel who finally received her wings.  We know in our hearts she will always look over us in spirit as she did in life.  Gone too suddenly but never ever forgotten.  She was our greatest strength and inspiration.  Thank you for everything Momma.  Rest in peace our sweet angel until we met again.  We love you and miss you more than words could ever say. God has taken you home.

 

Family will receive friends for a memorial gathering Saturday, November 16th from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm at Milward – Man O’War located at 1509 Trent Blvd., Lexington. To share a remembrance of Retha or offer condolences to her family, please visit milwardfuneral.com.

Retha was a very quiet, sweet woman. I remember her from my youth. Her demeanor never changed! She was precious! I pray for her children and loved ones who grieve for her, but, I believe she is in Heaven with her Mom, Dad, Billy, Betty, and the siblings that came before. I believe she is your Guardian Angel I am thankful that they were in my life for a short period! Rosie Plowman
