Ava was met at Heaven's gate by maternal grandmother, Terri Daniels; paternal great-grandparents, Chuck and Jackie Hoschar; and maternal great-great-grandmother, Violet Mae Stumbo; and many other special loved ones. Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Wednesday, May 28, 2014, at Willis Funeral Home with Rev. Loren Wilson officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Hills Cemetery, Mason County, W.Va.
