Marjorie Louise Hoy, 89, of Newmarket, MD, passed away peacefully at home Monday February 1st, 2021.
She was born on April 17th, 1931, to the late William and Grace Lee of Newmarket. Marjorie attended Lincoln School, where she earned her diploma. In her pastime, she enjoyed crossword puzzles, dominoes, and having lengthy phone conversations with family and friends. She was employed by Frederick County Public Schools where she drove the school bus for 38 years until retirement, (which only lasted for 6 months, as her passion drover her out of retirement to drive the "kiddos" of the Newmarket area for 2 additional years). During these years, she also found time to work the night shift at the Frederick News Post for numerous years, along with volunteering her time at Homewood Retirement Home. She also served as a member of the Ladies' Auxiliary for the Newmarket District Volunteer Fire Company.
Marjorie is survived by children, Patricia "Pat" Hackey (Paul), William Eddie Hoy (Cindy) of Frederick, and Mary Kathy Anderson (Emanuel); grandchildren, Charles Roberts, Jr., Anthony Hackey, Paul Hackey, Mark Hackey, Thomas Hoy, Jr., Tony Hoy, Nita Layer, William "EJ" Hoy, Jr., Erika Hoy-Kabuga, and Tanesha Hoy; 23 great grandchildren; 4 great-great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives; along with a dear friend whom she called her road partner, Sarah "Sally" Fossett.
Marjorie was preceded in death by a son, Thomas "Tommy" Hoy, Sr.; sisters, Hattie Wards, Mabel Dorsey, and Ethel Hopkins; brothers, William "Theodore" Hopkins, and Alexander Lee; and special niece, Bertha Russell.
The family would like to thank the staff at Genesis Healthcare of Ballenger Creek during her time of rehabilitation, and a host of local doctors and staff, specifically Dr. John Shutta, Dr. John Viterarello, and Dr. Shahid Rafiq.
A visitation will be held Friday February 5, 2021 from 1-2pm, at Resthaven Funeral Home and Community Center, 9501 Catoctin Mtn Hwy (US15N). Services will be private for the family.
