Marcy (Watts) Koch
1939-2019

Marcy (Watts) Koch, 79, St. Joseph, Missouri, passed away Thursday, March 14, 2019, at Diversicare.
She was born to W. L. and Thelma (Summers) Watts on September 20, 1939 in St Joseph, MO. She attended Sherwood elementary, Bliss Junior High and graduated from Central in the class of 1957.
Marcy married her Sunday school sweetheart, Larry Koch, in 1959. They met while attending Methodist Youth Fellowship at the First Methodist Church in 1953. It was a text book example of love at first sight.
After graduating from Central she took a job at Mannschreck’s Book Store. A few years later, she went to work for Premier Dental Laboratory where she remained until the birth of their first child, Kyle, in 1972. She remained a stay at home mother while raising Kyle and their second son Brett.
She was active in A.B.W.A and the Women’s Division of the Chamber of Commerce. She looked forward to those meetings where she could spend time with her lady friends.
Marcy was an avid sports fan. She loved to watch her grandsons Tyson and Dayne play baseball and basketball. Marcy was a hardcore Royals fan and followed every game on TV or radio. She was so addicted to sports that she would even watch golf on TV.
Marcy was preceded in death by her parents and granddaughter, Alyssa.
She is survived by her husband, Larry of the home; sons Kyle (Jennifer), Brett; grandsons Tyson and Dayne.
Farewell Services 10:00 A.M. Tuesday, Meierhoffer Funeral Home & Crematory. Interment Memorial Park Cemetery. The family will gather with friends 7:00 to 9:00 P.M. Monday, Meierhoffer Funeral Home & Crematory. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Friends of the Animal Shelter.

Just a little bit more sunshine today across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
