Monica Rae Hoover of Junction City, Ohio went to be with the Lord peacefully on Sunday, June 27, 2021.
Monica was born November 27, 1978 in Piqua, Ohio. She was the daughter of Cathy L. Boyden Dickson and the late Dean L. Dickson.
Monica was a very compassionate registered nurse. During her career of 12 years, Monica worked for Mt. Carmel East and Riverview Surgery Center. Unfortunately her career ended when she was diagnosed with terminal Neuroendocrine Carcinoma in December of 2010. She was diagnosed recently in March of 2021 with small cell lung cancer.
She loved life and fought this battle with courage, wisdom, and enormous faith in the Lord. Monica enjoyed many activities such as gardening and birdwatching. She especially enjoyed watching the hummingbirds, cardinals, and blue jays. Monica loved listening to country music and attending various concerts with her friends and family. Her love of Neil Diamond's music came from her father. She was a member of Saint Patrick Catholic Church of Junction City, Ohio.
Jenessa was her pride and joy. Jenessa was one of the many reasons why Monica fought her battle with cancer.
Monica is survived by her mother Cathy Dickson; precious daughter Jenessa Rae; sister Melissa Dickson and nephews Conner, Ethan, and Keaton Spicer; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. There wasn't a day that went by that she didn't think of her daughter, Alison Noelle Bowlen Ross.
