TC McCoy, 49, of Lexington died Feb. 15

Teresa Carter McCoy (“TC”), 49, of Lexington gained her angel wings and went to be with our Lord after a hard fought battle following her car accident last year. She passed away on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020, at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital surrounded by family. 

She was born on April 9, 1970, in Clifton Forge, the daughter of Peggy Deisher Carter and the late Edwin B. Carter III. 

Teresa is survived by her husband of 22 years, Jeffery “Love” McCoy; precious daughter Jaden McCoy; loving mother Peggy Carter; brothers Joey Carter and Edwin B. Carter IV; her niece Kalyn and Jesse O’Conner; nephew Christian Carter; niece Aryal Allie; nephew Dakota Vaughan; nephew Jamison Ferguson; her father and mother-in-law, Doug and Pat Scott; sisters-in-law Stephanie and Matt Vaughan, Shannan Ferguson, and Debbie Carter; her fur baby Phoebe, and a large circle of cousins, special friends, and her village of support. 

T.C was someone who made the world a better place. She was an immediate friend to everyone she met. She touched the lives of her entire community through endless service and dedication to local area sports, schools, and other organizations. She never worked a day in her life because she had a passion for caring for all the fur babies she groomed. She truly loved them all. Some of her favorite things include camping with the Salty Life Crew, singing every word to every song ever written, beach vacations filled with sunshine and family, and all things Christmas. What she loved she loved fiercely and passionately.  Above all, she lived every day for her beautiful daughter that was the light of her life and for her best friend Jeff, the love of her life.

The family will receive friends and loved ones on Wednesday, Feb. 19, at Harrison Funeral Home from 5 to 7 p.m. A funeral service will be held Thursday, Feb. 20, at 2 p.m. in the chapel of First Christian Church in Covington with the Rev. Bill Gilliand officiating. Interment will follow at Carter Family Cemetery on Gravel Ridge Road.

She will be forever missed by her loving family and those who knew her.
