Joyce Sue Hoover, beloved mother, grandmother and sister was placed into an elite protection agency called Heaven on March 26, 2015. Upon arrival in Heaven a welcoming party commenced which included her mother and father (Roy and Tressie Dodd) her brother (Glenn Dodd) sister (Garnet Wilson), Aunt (Laura Hunt) and Actor John Wayne (she was his number one fan) and many other family and friends.



We were supposed to mention that her beloved dog Benji was also there to welcome her in Heaven, but that dog was so mean, we are not sure he was able to be present ...if you catch our drift.



Joyce grew up in the mountains of West Virginia, and was blessed to have 3 of her siblings still alive and well: James (Linda Dodd) from St. Augustine FL, Barbara Stewart, Gainesville FL and Jane (Buck) Mooney, Liberty WV.



In 1958 she met and married James Hoover. Together they had 5 children (Barbara (James) Joiner, Michael (Sandee) Hoover, Joyce Ann Binion, Dot (Gerald) Hunt and Rita Hoover. Joyce successfully survived the raising of 5 children and moved to Florida in 1977. While they do not give medals for surviving the angst of 5 teenagers, they probably should.



Joyce enjoyed reading, fishing, camping, peanut butter and pickle sandwiches and Jim Beam. (Not necessarily in that order or together) She was an avid gardener. She particularly loved yellow roses, which were her favorite. Her favorite holiday was Christmas, and she would begin to plan her holiday décor in the late fall. Joyce was also a bit of a trouble -maker and prankster.



Joyce was a joy to be around and her wit and wisdom will live on for generations.



She was always thankful for her family and her friends. She was a supportive and loving confident and we will miss her terribly, but know she is only a prayer away.



While battling the nefarious foe named Cancer, God placed angels by her side to help care for her. Those angels include the doctors and nurses at Davis Cancer Center, Gainesville FL, Melissa Sue Ealum, (Old Town, FL) and Laura Futch (Cross City, Florida). We will always consider you family.



In the event that this obituary failed to mention someone by name, please note that it did not mean she loved you any less, it simply means that the author was very tired.



Funeral services will be held at 11:00 A.M., Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at Wilson Funeral Home, 420 Lee St. West. Burial will follow at Jim Hunt Cemetery on Poca Fork Rd. WV.



Visitation will be 6-8pm Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers (though yellow roses were her favorite) we ask that you bestow a kindness to someone else in her memory.
