Myrna Hoover Obituary

Myrna Joy Hoover was born January 18th, 1938 in Coquille, Oregon and passed away November 1, 2023 in Coquille at the age of 85. Myrna was the daughter of Bart and Stella Gasner and grew up in Riverton and Norway.

Myrna graduated from Myrtle Point High School in 1956. After High School she met her future husband, Terry Hoover. Myrna and Terry were married for over 61 years. Together they had two children, a son Barry and a daughter Wendy.

Myrna worked at Security bank for many years after High School. Later, she decided to start a daycare in her home so she could be with her children as they grew up. She enjoyed taking care of many wonderful children in her time as a daycare operator. She was so happy to provide childcare for all the wonderful families she met throughout the years. Her job brought her so much joy. Later, after she retired she loved taking care of her grandchildren.

Myrna spent many hours outdoors in her garden where she loved to grow roses and other flowers. She was known by friends and family as a wonderful baker. Her homemade bread, cookies and Christmas Bon-Bon’s were enjoyed by many friends and family members over the years. One of the highlights of her life besides her children and grandchildren was being able to travel to Canada where she visited Butchart Gardens with her daughter and son and his wife.

Myrna is survived by her Husband Terry Hoover, son Barry Hoover and his wife Rita (Forbes), daughter Wendy Forrester and her husband Mike. Myrna had three grandchildren Kale Forrester, Jordan Vasquez (husband Sean) and Cooper Forrester. She also had three amazing great grandchildren, Oakley Forrester, Henry Vasquez and Scarlett Vasquez. All brought a smile to her face until her last days. She is also survived by numerous brother and sister-in-laws, including Jackie Gasner of Roseburg. Cousins Margery Deaver and Beverly Baker as well as her lifelong friends Delores Barkley and Nancy Sargent.

She was preceded in death by her parents Bart and Stella Gasner, brother Meldon Gasner and cousin Deanna Stritzke.
