Obituary of Peter HOVING

PETER JOHN HOVING Peacefully, on November 1, 2008 at Riverview Health Centre, Peter, beloved husband of Marion, passed away at the age of 94 years. Beside his loving wife, he is survived by his sister Martha Anderson, sister-in-law Helen Mohan, brother-in-law David (Kathy) Baird, many nieces, nephews and friends. Peter was predeceased by his daughter Elizabeth in 1994, his parents Bartel and Martje Hoving, sisters Dean Van Hull and Mary Ainsworth. Peter was born on May 19, 1914 in North Kildonan and worked most of his life as a market gardener. Upon his retirement he grew vegetables as a hobby. He enjoyed sitting in his garage, watching and waving at all his neighbours who came by. Peter loved the outdoors and enjoyed driving his tractor. He will be missed by many relatives and friends and by his nephew Gord Anderson, his favourite cribbage partner. Peter was a loving and caring son, brother and uncle to his family and a wonderful husband and father. Marion would like to thank the staff at St. Boniface Hospital, Home Care attendants, Misericordia Care Centre and Riverview Health Centre. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, November 8 at 1:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St. Nothing is so sweet as life Nothing is more precious than time Nothing more reassuring than the touch of earth and grass The sound of voices and bird song This life for me is truly past I've loved you all to the very last Weep not for me but courage take And love one another for my sake. In lieu of flowers, donations in Peter's memory may be made to Jocelyn House or a charity of one's choice. CROPO FUNERAL CHAPEL 586-8044
