Kathryn K. McCoy Swimming pool cashier

November 30, 1990

Services for Kathryn K. McCoy, who retired as a cashier at a swimming pool at age 79, will be held at 11 a.m. today at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, 4711 Edmondson Ave.

Mrs. McCoy, who was 88 and lived on North Chapelgate Lane, died Tuesday at Deaton Hospital after a long illness.

She retired in 1981 as cashier at the Wilde Lake Village Pool in Columbia, a job she had held since 1964.

Earlier, from 1943 until 1954, she had worked as a section supervisor or floorwalker at Hutzler's Howard Street store.

The former Kathryn Kleinhans was a native of Port Clinton, Ohio, and a 1925 graduate of Oberlin College.

She and her husband, Robert L. McCoy Sr., an engineer for the Locke Insulator Co., moved to Baltimore in 1926 and settled in the Hunting Ridge area, and she became active in the Women's Guild of St. Bartholomew's Church.

From 1955 until her husband's death in 1964, the couple lived in the Howard County community of MacAlpine, and Mrs. McCoy was active in St. John's Episcopal Church.

Before moving to her final home in the Ten Hills area of Baltimore, Mrs. McCoy lived in Columbia and then at the Charlestown Retirement Community.

She is survived by a son, Robert L. McCoy of Ten Hills; two sisters, Winifred K. Vose of Severna Park and Grace K. Smith of Clearwater, Fla.; two grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

The family suggested contributions to the memorial fund of St. Bartholomew's Church.
