Maris Joy Hove
Maris Joy Hove, age 4, of Stanley, N.D., died Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2007 in her home.
She was born Dec. 26, 2002 at the University of Minnesota Hospital, the daughter of Clayton and Keri Hove of Stanley, N.D. Maris was an example of many miracles during her life with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and Jacobsen’s Syndrome.
Maris was proof that happiness and laughter can be contagious. She loved with smiles, hugs, and too many kisses to number and too few to satisfy.
God healed Maris completely by taking her to heaven.
She was preceded in death by her sister, Rachel.
In addition to her parents, Maris is survived by her sister, Grace; maternal grandparents Dwayne and Rande Sue Diers of Waverly; paternal grandparents Tom and Judy Hove of Powers Lake, N.D.; aunts; uncles; and cousins.
The funeral service took place Sunday, Aug. 12 at Our Savior’s Free Lutheran Church in Stanley, N.D.
