Winfred Martin Hoover Obituary
Winfred Martin Hoover Winfred Martin Hoover, 88, of Wichita, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, July 9, 2013. He was born in Toby, Burnet County, Texas, on April 11, 1925, to Martin Lewis and Bessie Lyda Hoover, and he married the love of his life Edith on September 4, 1943. W. M. received God's call to the ministry, and in 1950, he moved with his family to Fort Worth, Texas, so he could attend the Bible Baptist Seminary where he studied to become a pastor. He then faithfully served as pastor of the Fairpark Baptist Church of Ft. Worth, TX, for almost fifty years before retiring to Wichita, KS, to join the staff of NewSpring Church where he was Care Pastor for thirteen years. W. M. was preceded in death by his son Roger Winfred Hoover; brothers Eugene Davis Hoover, and Martin Lewis Hoover, Jr.; and his sister Wanda (Hoover) Harris. He is survived by Edith (Smith) Hoover, his precious wife of nearly seventy years; his brothers John Hoover (Vivian) and James Hoover (Gerry) of Burnet, TX; his sisters Kay Pulliam (John) of Atlanta, GA, Faye Brinkley (Charles) of Burnet, TX, and Anna Arnold (Lewis) of Red Oak, TX; his children Betty Riffee (Bill) and Mark Hoover (Mary Alice) of Wichita, KS; six grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established through NewSpring Church for the work of Jim and Shelley Dinsmore, missionaries in Peten, Guatemala. Services will be held on Friday, July 12, at 10:00 AM at NewSpring Church in Wichita, Kansas, and on Monday, July 15, at 1:00 PM at the First Baptist Church in Burnet, Texas.
