Doris Arlene Hoover, 87, of Lancaster, entered into the presence of our Lord on October 28, 2016.
She was the wife of the late J. R. Hoover who died in 1984. Born in Drumore Twp., she was the daughter of the late Willard and Dorothy McCauley.

She lived a wonderful life, full of family and friends. She delighted in the simple pleasures, such as family gatherings and holiday celebrations. Among her favorite things were camping with family, and having a long, leisurely breakfast with relatives and her friends, Mary Hogg and Mary Winters.

She will be sadly missed by her family.
