Vera I. Magee, 87


Vera I. Magee, 87, of Kilgore, passed away Aug. 18, 2017, in Carroll Healthcare Center. She worked at the Hoover Co. in North Canton and its successor, Maytag, for 55 years as an executive.

She is survived by nieces and nephews, Cindy and Rodger Roof of Carrollton, Rex and Brenda Magee of Kilgore and Bill Heidy of Scio; great nieces and nephews, Kelli (Roof) Sandefur, Kristin (Roof) Bartlow, Kayci (Roof) Robinson, Ryan Roof, John Magee and Luke Magee; and eight great nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, John A. and Emma Elnor Karns Magee; brother, Paul Magee; sister, Marjorie Heidy; and nephew, Bob Heidy.

We called her “Aunt” but that word is inadequate for what she was to us. She gave unconditional love, demonstrating it by her generous gift of self. Her passing has left an enormous void in all our lives. We are so very thankful for wonderful memories and to have been blessed with our “Aunt Vera.”

Vera was a lifelong member of Simmons Ridge Methodist Church/Bible Chapel until it closed, playing the piano every Sunday. She rests today in the arms of Jesus, her Savior.

A private graveside service by Hospice Chaplain Brian Sentken was held at Harlem Springs Cemetery. Funeral arrangements by Dodds Funeral Home. Those wishing to remember Vera can pray for a cure for Alzheimers.
