Cordia (McGee) McKinney

April 17, 1940 ~ June 14, 2017 (age 77)

The Piano Brothers

Mrs. Cordia McGee McKinney, age 77, of Marion, passed away peacefully at the Memorial Campus of Mission Hospitals in Asheville on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.  A lifelong resident of Marion, Cordia was born on April 17, 1940 to the late Henry Isaac McGee and Cordia Belle Ledford McGee.  She was retired from East Marion Manufacturing and was a member of Glenwood Independent Baptist Church.  Cordia showed her sincere love for her family and friends in a personal way and lived out her Christian life in her personal relationship with her Lord.  Every encounter with others would always end with a sincere “I love you” or “God bless you” because she truly cared about the welfare of those she loved.  Cordia made friends easily and those who knew and loved this precious lady will miss her very much.  Her husband of 41 years, James Edward McKinney, and a son-in-law, Daniel Snelson, preceded her in death.

 

Survivors include her four children, Eddie McKinney and wife Emily, Helen Snelson, Wayne McKinney and wife Kathy, and Harold McKinney and wife Suzanne, all of Marion; two brothers, Fred McGee and wife Mattie and Harold McGee, all of Marion; a sister, Alma Holland of Nebo; and four grandchildren, Paul McKinney, Robert Snelson, Gary Snelson and wife Andrea, and Amanda McKinney.

 

A funeral service will be held on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel of Westmoreland Funeral Home in Marion with Rev. Larry Gentry, Rev. T. Jay Addison and Rev. Phillip Tate officiating.  The family will receive friends from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. prior to the service at the funeral home.  Burial will follow at McDowell Memorial Park where she will be laid to rest beside her beloved James.  Flowers are appreciated, however, those desiring to make a memorial contribution in her memory are encouraged to consider Hospice of McDowell County at 575 Airport Road, Marion, NC  28752.
