Marion Joyce Hose

Mrs. Marion Hose of Augusta, WV, after living a long and full life, passed away on July 4, 2022, to join her husband, Mr. Paul Hose, who preceded her in death in 1988.

She was also preceded in death by one daughter, Tanya Fink and grandsons, Wyatt Fink and Garrett Fink; parents, Parren L. Helmick and Maude F. (Funkhouser) Helmick; brothers, Hayden, John, Marvin and Donald Helmick; sisters, Agnes Combs, Lena Huff, and Ellen Wilkins.

She is survived by a sister, Emma J. White of Cumberland; one daughter, Mary F. Ruble and husband, Randy of Winchester, VA; numerous nieces and nephews and their families; and a much-loved nephew, Dylan A. Hose. Mrs. Hose started out as Dylan’s caretaker and Dylan ended up as her caretaker. He was a great source of love and joy in her life.

Marion was a homemaker and an avid reader and had a fondness for Louis Armor books. She was quick to speak her mind but if she loved you, she made sure you knew it.

A graveside service will be held on Thursday, July 7, 2022, at Olivet Cemetery in Moorefield at 2:00 p.m. with pastor Bill Rowley officiating.

Elmore Funeral Home of Moorefield is honored to assisting her family with arrangements.
