Rose Doris (Enevold) Coy, 92, died on February 6, 2018 in Shelburne, VT, after several years of living with dementia. She was born February 19, 1925 in Chicago, IL, daughter of Rose and Irving Enevold. She was just a four year-old when her family lost their business in the stock market crash of 1929. Farming became the means of survival, first to a Michigan fruit farm and then an Illinois dairy farm. By 1935, the family was able to get back into business, and in 1940, her parents re-opened Enevold Realty Co. in Libertyville IL. Rose graduated from Libertyville High School in 1944 and went on to the University of Illinois, majoring in Journalism. She met her future husband, Clifford Lynn Coy, during her senior year. They were married after Rose's graduation in 1948 and celebrated their 65th anniversary in 2013. They first lived in Illinois, but in 1953, the advertising world of NYC beckoned, and they moved to Glen Cove, NY where they lived for nearly twenty years. Rose was a stay-at-home mom, active in the PTA and bowling league, as well as bookkeeper for her husband's firm, C Lynn Coy Assoc. Around 1972 the family and the business moved to Fairfield County CT. Their New London NH cottage, which they had purchased in 1966, was one continuous remodeling project, and it became their final home where they lived until 2013. Even though they had traveled all over the world, and spent many winters in Florida, they loved their home on Little Lake Sunapee the best. In 2013, Rose moved to Woodcrest Village in New London, and in 2015 she moved to The Arbors in Shelburne VT. During her time at both of these elder care facilities, she received top-notch treatment, and was shown abundant patience, humor, and love by the staff. Rose's family appreciates this care, as well as the recent support from the VNA. Rose is survived by her daughter, Cynthia Coy of Williston, VT and son, Steven Coy of Springfield, NH; grandson Peter Ginsbury, his wife Ella, and great granddaughter Monroe Ginsbury of Wilson, WY; grandson Nathan Ginsbury of Burlington VT; granddaughter Allison Coy and great granddaughter Morgan Schaefer of Springfield, NH; and step-granddaughter Allison Ginsbury, of Essex Junction, VT. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Clifford Lynn Coy (2014) and her siblings, Norm Enevold (2010) and Irv Enevold (2012) and Edith Dahm (2016). There will be a small graveside service to be held at a later date. The couple's cremated remains will be buried together in New London NH. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, to support their research of all forms of dementia.
