Heart Emblem

Peggy Sue Hoover Patrick passed away peacefully on Saturday January 18, 2020 at Taylor House Hospice. The family looks forward to meeting many more of Peggy's friends at her Celebration of Life Service on Saturday January 25th, 11 am, at the Elks Lodge, 5420 NE 12th Ave, Pleasant Hill. (Enter the building in the back) A buffet lunch will be available for the afternoon and at 11:30 we will begin a Time of Sharing so think of your best stories or inspirations about Peggy!
She was born June 7, 1950 in Ottumwa, Iowa but grew up in Des Moines. Peggy had careers in the legal field in Des Moines, Dallas Texas, and San Jose California before returning home to Des Moines in 2009. At home again, Peggy quickly became involved in local activities and non-profits. She worked for the East-South Des Moines Chamber, Des Moines Choral Society, volunteered for numerous non- profits such as the Palmer-Ellefson Free Clinic, Des Moines Sister Cities Commission, neighborhood associations, and local politicians. She was a genealogist and helped many people trace their ancestry through her business Roots Find and was active with her East High Class of 1968 and still had so many close friends from her class that she knew since grade school.
Peggy is survived by her son Ryan Finn, granddaughter Leona, her mother Bev Hoover, siblings Randy Hoover, Tim (Barb) Hoover, and Sherree (Rick) Adams as well as many nieces and nephews who recall such good times with her when they would visit her in Texas and California. Peggy was preceded in death by her father Rex Hoover.
Peggy is remembered by a wealth of friends many of whom were so helpful to her and her family until the end. They are so appreciated and are certainly East High Angels!
Memorials may be given to Taylor House Hospice in care of the Patient Compassion Fund, or to the East High Class of 1968 Scholarship Endowment Fund. The Scholarship Fund was special to Peggy and Taylor House provided excellent and compassionate care.
