AGE: 88 • Ocean Grove
Loyce Elizabeth Roberts Horn, 88, of Ocean Grove, went peacefully home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013. She was born in Lynchburg, VA and grew up in Atlanta, GA. She was loving wife for nearly 60 years of Paul Horn and loving mother of three children and their spouses, David Slayden and Maggie Wissmann, Catherine and Greg Cooper, Holly Horn and Alex Lamis. She was the enthusiastic and loving grandmother of four grandchildren, Amelia, David, Paul, and Julia.
While raising her family on 20 acres of beautiful rolling Indiana countryside, she was a wonderful homemaker and mother. Loyce was an active Girl Scout leader for many years. Hiking and camping were among her favorite activities and many young scouts benefited from her creative ideas and ventures.
Her lifelong creativity and interest in art expressed itself in many ways, including the opening of an art gallery and shop, and a flower arranging business called "Candlelight and Flowers". As a writer, she created the Penrod Press, through which she produced newsletters, announcements, beautiful cards, and cookbooks. She wrote and illustrated several children's books through which she developed her well-loved character, "Miss Mouse". In later years, she was an active member and co-president of the Women's Exchange in Little Silver, where she also edited the organization's newsletter.
She dearly loved her grandchildren and, as "Nana", was an active and favorite part of their lives. She provided an "open door" and her house was like a second home to them. Throughout her life, she attended both the Episcopal and Methodist church. She has chosen the columbarium at St. Urial's by the Sea in Sea Girt as her final resting place on earth.
Her lively sense of humor and nurturing spirit will be with us always.
A service of celebration of her life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9 at St. Paul's UMC, Ocean Grove. Flowers may be sent through Ocean Grove Flower Shoppe.
