Former Corrales resident Robin McCoy died in her sleep March 28. She was 93. She had moved to the Houston area in 2009 to be closer to her daughter, Amy Pettigrew. She left Corrales in 1987. Born in El Paso, she earned a bachelor’s degree in fine art at Mills College in Oakland, California. In 1951, she married future attorney Bob McCoy; they moved to Albuquerque and then Corrales where they raised three children and many animals.
To create her art, she worked in oils, watercolor, small sculptures and wood carving. McCoy served on the board of trustees for Sandia Preparatory School, and as a docent at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and the Museum of Natural History. Her husband and sons Matthew and Daniel McCoy and sister Jane Norton Dodds died before her. She is survived by daughter Amy Pettigrew and three grandsons.
A private memorial event will be held later.
