Virginia Sue (Reedy) Hott


Mineral Wells Index

— June 11, 1935 – Nov. 24, 2013

Virginia Sue (Reedy) Hott, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed into the arms of the Lord peacefully on Nov. 24, 2013. A lifelong resident of Palo Pinto County, Virginia was born to Robert (Bob) Hodges Reedy and Florence Arena (Cox) Reedy.

As a child, Virginia lived on the Brazos River. Her family moved to Mineral Wells in 1945 where she attended school and worked in many different jobs. She went to work in Fort Worth at a pest control business and this is where she met her soulmate, Raymond (Ray) Allen Hott. They married in January 10.

She went to work at Edo-Air Mitchell until retiring to work with Ray in their family owned business, Day & Night Pest Control. Virginia loved spending time with her family and the outdoors. Nothing brought her more joy than her boys and their families gathering around in her home so she could cook for them. Then, just relax and share time together.  She never tired of playing with her grandchildren and then her great-grandchildren. They were the apples of her eye. She would go visit her brother, Alton, and his wife, Hazel, and they liked to go pick poke salad and turnip greens, afterwards, cooking and sharing with her family and anyone else who stopped by. She and her sister-in-law, Ann, shared special times together also, if just to sit on the porch and visit.

Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, Robert (Bob) Hodges Reedy and Florence Arena (Cox) Reedy; husband, Ray Hott; sisters: Margaret Porter Mathis, Lorrain Porter, Velma Porter Henson, Velma Reedy; brothers: Norman Porter, Holis Porter, Albert Porter, Carol Reedy, John Tom Reedy, Jack Reedy, Joe Reedy, Hodges Reedy, Lee Reedy, Wheeler Reedy.

Survivors are brother Alton Reedy and wife Hazel of Mineral Wells; sister in-law Ann Norris of Mineral Wells; brother in-law George Hott of Fort Worth; James Hott and wife Margie of Gainesville; sons: Mike Hott and wife Kathy, Dale Hott and wife Becky, and Joey Hott; grandchildren: Mistie Hott McKnight and husband Jarrid, Shane Hott, and Katie Hott Kirkland and husband Brad; great-grandchildren: Lexi, Tristen, Gavin McKnight, Cody Ray Hott, and Gypsy Kirkland. Many nieces and nephews and many friends.

Memorial Services will be at Indian Creek Cemetery on Saturday at 10 a.m. with Brother Guy Weathers performing the service.

Family and close friends will gather at her home in Mineral Wells.
