I am not a wordpress expert but I do use tinymce and CKEditor in my own projects. Pasting from word has always been in issue.  I take out the plug in for paste from word and only allow paste as plain text.  You will then need to use the wysiwyg editor to make items bold if needed, but it is the best way to strip out all the bad ms word code.  

Perhaps another wordpress expert will have a different solution.

When you say it's missing, is it because you're only seeing one horizontal icon bar on your visual editor when editing a post or page?
If that's the case, click on the last icon on that row that has some colored squares in it. The second row where the icon for copying from word will show.
you need to install an editor that includes that option.
I use CKEditor and you can download it and install it from here:

you can also install it directly from within wordpress by in the dashboard, clicking on plugins - add new and type in CK editor into the search and then choose it from the list.

once installed , activate it and then you'll have the full toolbar for the articles.
