WALLINGTON, N.J. -- Wallington resident Erika Coy died Wednesday, Feb. 3. She was 39.
Born in Colombia to Richard and Doris (Gomez) Coy, her family came to the United States in 1983. Coy attended Middlesex Community College, prior to becoming a Hudson County corrections officer. She was an avid supporter of all that is law enforcement and was a member of the PBA and LEO-ONLY.org.
