LEXINGTON, Ky. - Linda Ann Conley McGaughey, longtime North American representative for the English-based Tattersalls sales company, died last Friday in Lexington. She was 59 and had been treated for an undisclosed illness since last fall.

McGaughey was a member of the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association and the Thoroughbred Club of America, as well as a volunteer for the Shoemaker Foundation.

McGaughey's survivors include her husband, Neal McGaughey; stepsons David, Daniel, and Tim McGaughey; stepdaughter Angela Johnson; 10 grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.

A service will be held Tuesday and 10 a.m. at W. R. Milward Mortuary in Lexington.
