Judy Carol Hoover

Marion Va.

Judy Carroll Hoover, age 66, passed away peacefully on Saturday morning, March 21, 2020 at Valley Health Care in Chilhowie, Virginia, after a brief illness.

Born and raised in Marion, Judy was a 1972 graduate of Marion Senior High School and attended Cedars Baptist Church. She served many years as Secretary of the Smyth County GOP, as well as the Smyth County Republican Women and served both organizations in multiple capacities. Judy was known by all for her kindness, nearly to a fault. She was always willing to put anyone and everyone before herself, illustrated by her love for her children and for people in general.

She is preceded in death by her parents, C. Eugene and Callie "Toots" Hoover; her grandparents H.C. and Lorena Hoover.

She is survived by her sister, Renie Hoover and husband Jack Farmer; brother, Henry Hoover and wife, Missi; special niece, Callie Helton and husband, Bobby Bise; nephews, Clint Helton and Andy Hoover; the light of her life, great- nephew Sam Bise; specials friends, Robert Campbell, Cynthia Rouse, Carol Schwartz; more friends than could be mentioned; and the countless children who made her life complete in her 35 years as a daycare provider.

The family will receive friends at her niece Callie's home at 261 Jordan Lane on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m.

The family would like to thank the professionals at Valley Health Care; Dr. Emily Bralley and her staff; as well as her oncologist, Paul Kramer for their exemplary medical care.

I'm in shock, please accept my sincere and deeply felt sympathy. Though Judy and I never met in real life, we knew each other through our kindred spirit ... all things tea and all things children. We found our home on the AOL Parent Soup some 20 plus years ago - specifically iVillage.com in a group called Child Care Providers. Every day we shared our daily doings with the littles we cared for, finding we, and so many child care providers around the globe, were of the same mind when it came to the business of child caring. I just cannot believe Judy is gone. My heart hurts, I'm in tears. Judy called me and her "birthday twins" because we shared the same birthday one year apart. 11-6

Dear Renie, Henry and Callie - we are so very sorry for the loss of Judy. What a precious soul she was. We met Judy approximately 36 years ago when we were looking for daycare for our 2 boys. You all kept our boys for more than 3 years and on many occasions our daughter too - Judy was always there for us no matter what. Over the years we had out of town emergencies and once again we could always count on Judy to keep our children for us, and we always knew they were safe and happy! We never had a doubt that Judy didn't love our children as her own. I didn't realize that she was sick, and I probably should have, that's my loss - I know you all will miss her terribly and we pray that the Lord will give you the comfort only HE can give and you will have the peace knowing she is not suffering any longer. God Bless, Ed, Kim, Marshall, Tyler and Gretchen Doss

I first met Judy years ago through our genealogy research and soon learned I had previously corresponded with her father on several occasions. Although originally from Marion, I moved away with my family when I was young but Judy and I corresponded via email and Facebook messenger and developed a friendship I will always treasure. I pray you will receive the comfort the Lord has promised in His Word and in the knowledge Judy is with her Heavenly Father and her parents whom she adored.

I first met Judy when we worked at the Skyview Drive In and we talked about those days and later for her to be my tax lady. She sure loved her morning coffee. I will miss her but I know shes happy to be with her mommy whom she loved and missed so much. Rest in peace my sweet friend.

Years ago when Andy was little Judy would get up at 3:00 AM for us and take care of Andy because we had to be at work at 4:00 AM. We had grown apart through the years wish I would have known she was sick. Rest In Peace Judy.
