Hope Ann (Slivka) Massey

February 2, 1928 ~ August 1, 2022 (age 94)


Hope Ann Massey passed away from this life on August 1, 2022 at the age of 94 surrounded by family at the home of her son in law and daughter. She was born February 2, 1928 in Morgan County to Stephen and Anna Slivka and grew up on the family farm with her 8 siblings. The children walked to their school in Unionville and attended high school in Reinersville. Hope was married to James Massey in 1947 until his death in September, 2008. They worked together on their farm while raising 3 children, many special pets along with cattle and a much loved horse. She was a gifted musician and played piano and organ along with Ruth Orr for many years at the Deerfield Presbyterian Church. She was devoted to her family and was surrounded by good neighbors and friends. The many conversations around her kitchen table, flowers and listening to the birds outside her kitchen door brought her great joy, and the love of her Lord was an inspiration to those who were blessed to know her. She is survived by her children, Bill (Janice) Massey, Raymond Massey, and Mary Ann (John) Curtis. She adored her  grandchildren, Eddie (Krissy) Massey, Mark (Mandie) Massey, Naomi(Ryan)  Hicks, Susanna Massey, Terrell (Jess) Massey, Daniel Ben (Andrea) Massey, Paul Massey, Patrick (Deniece) Massey, Morgan Massey, Romana (Seth) Foster, Sam (Austa) Massey, Sarah (Reilly) Foltz, Charlie Massey, and Esther (Kyle) Gram, Andy (Becky) Curtis, Stephen (Liz) Curtis, Luke (Marissa) Curtis, and Cliff (Kajun) Curtis, and 31 precious great grandchildren. Hope was preceded in death by her beloved parents and 8 siblings, Steve, Mary, Agnes, Helen, Joe, John, Ann, Alice, daughter in law Patricia Massey, and her husband, James Massey.  Friends may call 12 to 2 p.m. Saturday, August 13, 2022 at Deerfield Presbyterian Church where services will follow at 2:30 p.m. with Pastor Galen Finley officiating. She will be laid to rest beside her husband in Deerfield Cemetery. MIiller-Huck Funeral Home is entrusted with arrangements. Memorial Contributions may be made to the Deerfield Presbyterian Church.
