Sarah McCoy Obituary

Our hearts are heavy as we gather to celebrate the life of our beloved Sarah Jane McCoy, affectionately known as “Tillie,” who peacefully journeyed to her eternal abode on March 12, 2024. Sarah was born on June 25, 1955, in Crawford County, Georgia, to the late Ben and Easter Mae Sandifer.

A student of the Bibb County School system, Sarah attended Southwest High School. As a young adult, she exchanged vows in holy matrimony with the late Larry McCoy, and their union was blessed with five children, although one sweet angel departed this earth in infancy. Sarah was a devoted wife and loving mother.

Venturing into the workforce, she found employment at Hardee’s of Macon before moving on to Family Dollar stores, where she diligently served for nearly two decades. An adept cook, Sarah loved nurturing her family and enjoyed spending time with her loved ones.

She was preceded in death by her children, LaSandra McCoy and Jaro Jermaine McCoy.

Her legacy will be forever treasured by her beloved children: Marlon McCoy, Sr., Joseph McCoy, and Sable McCoy all of Macon, Georgia; her grandchildren, Marlon McCoy, Jr., and Vanessa McCoy both of Gwinnett County, Georgia, along with four great-grandchildren.   Also cherishing her memory are her surviving siblings, Eugene (Hattie) Sandifer, Sr. of Miami, Florida, Evelyn Hodges, Rosa Lewis, Teresa Watson of Macon, Georgia and Lucinda Vinson of Capitol Heights, Maryland; her sisters-in-law, Betty J. Clark, Martha Williams, Diane Clark, Beverly McCoy, Kathy Clark, and Sarah Abuspieh all of Macon, Georgia; brothers-in-law, Stanford Clark, Darryl Clark, Elvis Clark all of Macon, Georgia, and Willie B. Clark of Augusta, Georgia; a devoted best friend, Sandra Bartlett along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and cherished friends.

Sarah’s presence will forever linger in the hearts of those she touched, a beacon of love that will endure through precious memories.
