HOOVER, KATHY SUE
Kathy Sue Hoover passed away peacefully June 12, 2019 at Banner University Hospital at the age of 61. Kathy was born in Oklahoma and raised in Wittman but spent much of her adult life in Phoenix.

She was an enthusiastic parishioner of Saint Mary’s Basilica and participant in St. Vincent de Paul and 40 Days for Life activities. She loved to paint and she left her friends her vibrant artwork.
