Carol (Hayes) Hoover, of Allegan, Michigan, has left this world surrounded by her family, February 26, 2020. She was born November 20, 1942 in Chicago, IL, where she resided until 1978. She was the daughter of Irvin and Dorothy (Goltz) Hayes, both deceased and sister to Larry (Gloria) Hayes of Chicago, IL and Fred Hayes of Nashville, TN. Carol leaves behind her husband Victor Hoover, whom she married on February 19, 1972. She is the love of his life. He has taken care of her for the past 48 years and now, turns over her care to the Lord until they will be together, again.

Carol is survived by her four children and their spouses, Susan (Barbie) Hoover of Cape Cod, MA, Shelly (Ken) Moench of Holland, MI, Victor (Melissa) Hoover of Allegan, MI, and Andrew (Emily) Hoover of Hamilton, MI. Carol had seven grandchildren, Mickaela, Nicholas, William, Tucker, Camden, Brielle (BB), and Faith; two great grandchildren, Piper and Everett; many nieces and nephews.

Carol worked as a machinist for Johnson & Johnson in Chicago, IL. After moving to Allegan, MI, she drove school bus for Allegan Public Schools, before eventually working at Allegan General Hospital in a variety of roles. She retired in 2005 to spend more time with her grandchildren, but after several years of retirement, Carol decided to pursue her life-long interest of working for the Gun Lake Casino. She quickly created a family of friends within the casino and said working at the casino was the best job she had ever had. Her co-workers were especially supportive when she began to decline in health due to her breast cancer diagnosis.

Over the course of her life, Carol touched many people with her positive outlook and sense of humor. She loved camping, crafting, and playing bunco with her friends. She and Victor shared a love of movies, crime drama shows, and most recently, the game show channel. She is adored by her husband and children and her loss will be greatly felt by her family and friends.

Carol’s wishes were to be surrounded by her family at the time of her passing. Cremation has taken place, and her family will celebrate her life with a private gathering. Carol and her family would like to thank The Wings Home staff for their compassion and comfort. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations be made to The Wings Home, 530 Linn Street, Allegan, MI 49010.

So sorry for your loss of this lovely woman. I was Carol's supervisor at Allegan General Hospital and so appreciated her positive attitude, her fine work ethic and her great humor. She was such a pleasure to work with! I can only imagine how she must have lit up her casino family🙏💕
