She was born to the late Vince Radevany and Charlotte Lawrence Sutherland on November 22, 1930 in Bellingham, Washington. She was a 1949 graduate of Bellingham High School in Bellingham, Washington. She married Barney Carmen McCoy of Bonnerdale, Arkansas on February 3, 1950 when she was 19 years of age. Barney preceded her in death after 46 years of marriage in 1996. She is survived by her two sons Bill (Livia) McCoy and Dana (Anita) McCoy, plus 4 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
Jeanie had many talents. She was an accomplished pianist and singer and sang specials in high school productions and churches. She was well over a 100 word-per-minute typist and worked in both her mother’s and father’s businesses in high school and in various other jobs. She kept books for Barney’s business. She taught adult Bible studies and parenting classes. She enjoyed knitting and made various quilts and caps to give to the needy. Of all that she did, she was the proudest of her Christian faith and the several years she and Barney served as independent missionaries to the Native Americans in Northwest Washington state.
A memorial service will be held at the Community Bible Church in Concrete, Washington on Saturday, July 17, 2021 at 2:00 P.M. Jeanie will be laid to rest at a private service at Bayview Cemetery in Bellingham.
