    Miriam Hoover


    Having resided at The Cedars for 27 years, Miriam Hoover was born into the Church of the Brethren. Her father was a free minister and served a church near Cincinnati, Ohio, where Miriam met her lifetime soulmate, Wilbur Hoover, a pastor in the Church of the Brethren. Their first call together was to a church in southwest Nebraska. Miriam taught in a one-room school where she had 6 students. This began a lifelong career path – Wilbur serving the church and Miriam teaching students. Later Miriam earned credentials in special education and taught in Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska.

     When asked why she and Wilbur chose to come to the Cedars, Miriam replied, “We had lived in McPherson for 12 years. Our transition eliminated yard work, allowed us to enjoy life, and enabled us to travel. Special trips took us to Europe and New Zealand. People wait too long to make the move to The Cedars Village. They should come while they are physically able to travel, get to know everyone, and develop new friendships. Although the duplexes look the same on the outside, each is adapted inside to individual tastes. I appreciate the ongoing maintenance and upgrades and the on-call emergency service.” 


    As a longtime resident, what is it about the Cedars that sets it apart from other retirement communities? Miriam responded, “It is a good size and family oriented. We have a spirit of community, good friendships, and a support system. I appreciate that The Cedars’ foundation was built on Christian principles, and that has not changed over the years.”I enjoy being here and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”
