      Comment
  • Helen Roane Hoggard, 98, departed this life peacefully at Ware Presbyterian Village in Oxford, Pa., on Monday, Oct. 21, 2013.
    She was born in Stonefort, Pope County, on Sept. 14, 1915, the daughter of Marion Bowmen and Lillian Lorena (Morse) Henshaw. She was the wife of Albion Boutwell Roane Jr. and after his death, Clarence S. Hoggard. She was the sister of Patricia Henshaw Engles.
    She personified Christian faith and love. Her family grieves her loss, comforted by our Lord's promise of Heaven rejoicing in a life well-lived. Her lifelong commitment to others was exemplified by a full career in nursing. This world has lost a treasure, while Heaven has claimed one.
    She is survived by her son, Lester W. Roane (Carol) of Perryville, Md.; two grandsons, Anthony B. Roane (Wendy) of Pasadena, Md., and Paul J. Payne of Calvert, Md.; three granddaughters, Nancy Celmins (Richard) of Philadelphia, Pa., Thuy Schroeder (Paul) of Monkton, Md., and Lisa Beaver of Suffolk, Va.; as well as numerous much-loved "adopted" children, grandchildren and dear friends.
    A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013, at Grace Reformed Episcopal Church, 560 Fountain St., Havre de Grace, Md. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to Grace Church in her honor.
