2020/01/obit-hoover-20200102_120256-223x300.jpgBonnie Langford Hoover, 89, of Pagosa Springs, Colo., passed away peacefully on Jan. 1.

A winner of 14 Pagosa Pines Golf Course Clubhouse championships, she chose New Year’s Day to finally join her late husband, Earl Hoover, on the golf course. A 5 p.m. cocktail was surely shared with her late son, Jack Cammack, as well. Bonnie loved to entertain and was known to host elaborate cocktail and dinner parties. She was a gracious hostess, an eager listener, and generous with her time and attention.

She passed her love of all things green and flowering on to her daughter-in-law, Mary Helen Cammack, and granddaughters-in-law, Codye Cammack and Laurel Cammack.

To her son, David Cammack, and grandsons, Jake Cammack, and Dan Cammack, she gave her love of wildlife as well as early morning duck and goose hunts in the freezing cold.

Bonnie loved sports and was a proud supporter of the Pagosa Pirates. For many years, she could be spotted in her Suburban, parked near the end-zone, honking her horn for the Pirates.

In addition to the Cammack family, she is survived by Earl Hoover’s three children, Barbara Hoover, John Hoover and Anne Ducharme-Jones.

Memorial contributions in her name may be made to the Pagosa Springs Pirate Athletic Booster Club, Attention: Al Wylie, treasurer, P.O. Box 5103, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147.

There will be no memorial service, however, a private family golf tournament is planned when the grass turns green.
