This week’s Memory Jogger, submitted by Maggie Riggs of McConnellsburg, pictures Rev. David R. Hoover and wife Mary at Christmastime in the early 1980s in the sanctuary of St. Paul Lutheran Church in McConnellsburg. The Christmas tree was decorated with Christian symbols handmade by members of the congregation. Mary died this year at 96 on September 1. Rev. Hoover died in 1991. He ministered at St. Paul’s from 1945 until his retirement in 1983, the longest pastorate in the church’s history. 46p1.jpg
