Susan Grace Dent Hoey went to her eternal reward on Oct 29, 2021 after a sudden and brief illness. Surrounded by her family in her final days and consistent with her spirit, she fought fiercely for her family until the end. She is survived by her husband, Kevin, of 37 years; their children, Scott and his wife, Melinda, and their children, Owen and Jenna; John and his wife, Chelsi, and their daughter, Emilia-Jean; and Kaitlin and her husband, Christian, and their daughter, Grace; her sisters, Linda Dent and Dolores (Joseph) Cotter, both of Columbus, Ohio. She is survived by Mary Anne Dent, wife of Richard W. Dent. She was predeceased by her sisters Shirley and Geraldine and her mother Grace and father Richard. Following in the footsteps of her mother and father, she worked at the Quantico Marine Base in Triangle VA for many years, when in 1982 as the protocol officer for the Education Center, she met her husband, Kevin (Col, USMC Ret.). From there, she and her son, Scott, and Kevin became a family in May 1984. Susan followed Kevin on his remaining career on assignments in Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, and California while adding John and Kaitlin to their family. Susan was happy to be a homemaker, wife and mother creating a wonderfully warm and stable home for them to grow and learn. Over the years, she enjoyed her love of cooking, basket weaving, gardening, biking, reading, crocheting scarfs and knitting beautiful throws. Services will be held 22 November 2021 at Mountcastle Turch Funeral Home on 4143 Dale Blvd. Dale City, VA 22193 (703) 680-1234. Visitation at 1000 with Service at 1100 followed by a private family burial at Quantico National Cemetery. Additional information at www.mountcastle.net
