YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Marye Jean Ireland Hoover, 93 of Youngstown, passed away Friday evening, September 30, at Omni Manor Health Care Center.

Marye was born September 13, 1929 in Pullman, Ritchie County, West Virginia, a daughter of her loving late parents, Clyde C. and Mildred (Davis) Ireland.

She married her beloved Charles H. Hoover on September 3, 1950, moving to Youngstown in 1954. They shared 57 years of blessed marriage and six wonderful children.
