Mary Rose Nuckols McCoy, died Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2018, at her home.
Mary Rose was born on Sept. 8, 1933, the daughter of Wendell Mansfield Nuckols and Audrey Neal Nuckols.
She leaves to cherish her memories, two daughters, Karen (Duane) Rector, of Smiths Grove and Janet (Johnny) Kinslow, of Glasgow; a sister, Martha Neal (Graham) Cooke, of Louisville; and two special nieces, Barrett H. Cooke (Timothy Coulter) and children Odin and Stevie Anne Coulter, of Los Angeles, California, and Elizabeth Neal Cooke (Josephine Mananandry) and children Lia and Horenge Mananandry, of Louisville.
From learning to drive at 13 to having her license renewed at 84, she loved to be behind the wheel. She was an excellent driver! All you had to do was ask her. She embraced the joy of the open road, the same as she embraced the joy of everyday life, with welcome and genuine hospitality. She was a savvy bridge player, and accomplished cook, a true U of L fan, a wise confidant, a faithful Christian and most of all a devoted mother, sister, aunt and friend. The consummate Aunt Rosie! A lady with the most vibrant personality and giving heart, so without Mary Rose, our hearts are broken and our tears endless, but our memories and joys are immeasurable.
As a lifelong member of First United Methodist Church in Glasgow, the family requests expressions of sympathy or memorials be directed to the church or to the Barren River Animal Welfare Association.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at a date to be announced. A.F. Crow & Son Funeral Home is assisting the family with all arrangements.
