Kathryn LaVern (Rogers) Hoskins

COLLISON — Kathryn LaVern (Rogers) Hoskins, 82, of Collison, our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, passed away at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012, at Country Health in Gifford, which has the best staff ever, gracious and loving. Thank you so much.

Mom gave her heart to the Lord on Oct. 31, 2012, a wonderful treat, and passed away on Christmas Day, the day when Jesus was born. She was a new babe in Heaven.

Kathryn was born Jan. 5, 1930, in Danville, the daughter of Ernest and Esther (Fox) Rogers.

She attended school in Oakwood, where she met and married John T. Hoskins on Dec. 19, 1948, in Potomac. He survives.

She also is survived by one daughter, Marilyn Sue (Steve) Pettice of Potomac; three sons, Jerry Dean (Joey) Hoskins of Sacramento, Calif.; John Steven Hoskins of Gunnison, Colo., and James “Jim” (RaeLynn) Hoskins of St. George, Utah; eight grandchildren; and 20 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Charlie Donald Rogers.

Kathryn’s love was raising her family. She has been very talented as a homemaker. She also loved to travel and in their earlier years spent many a time traveling the United States with her loving husband, John, and their family. They traveled the Smoky Mountains to Florida, many of the Southern states and out West to Yellowstone. Later she and John enjoyed traveling to visit children and grandchildren in Colorado, Utah and California.

Kathryn enjoyed sewing and crafts. She was very talented in playing the dulcimer. She worked as a volunteer at the Danville Humane Society Thrift Shop and was a member of the Home Extension for many years. Her ancestors were instrumental in pioneering the Oakwood area and she was a direct descendant of Henry Oakwood and Henry Sallee.

Her children will always have fond memories of trips to pick strawberries, fishing and siteseeing. She was a very gracious and loving mother and wife. She will be missed until we see her again on the other side.

A celebration of Kathryn’s life will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 29, at Wolfe-Blurton Funeral Home in Potomac, with Pastor Dave Rumley officiating. Burial will follow the service at Oakwood Cemetery. Visitation will be 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at the funeral home.

Memorials may be made to the family. Condolences may be sent to the family at: www.wolfeblurtonfuneralhome.com.
