     Idleane Maggie Roop was buried at Mount Tabor Cemetery, Beckley, Raleigh Co., West Virginia.2,6 Her Social Security Number was 233-44-7548.7 She Idleane Maggie Mitchem of Crab Orchard (formerly of Hinton, W.Va.), passed away Sunday, June 23, 2013, at Bowers Hospice House in Beckley, following a short illness. She was very proud to have reached the age of 90 years young. She was preceded in death by her husband of 69 years, Roy Dennis Mitchem Sr; a sister, Mary Virginia "June" Presnell, and two brothers, Phillip "Phil" Frank and George William "Billy" Roop. Roy and Idleane were married on April 6, 1941. Three children were born into this marriage: Roy Dennis Mitchem Jr. and his wife, Jenny of Hinton, Christine Marie "Chris" Sarver and her husband, Noah Lee of Crab Orchard and Joseph Ray "Joe" Mitchem Sr. and his wife Sue of New Windsor, Md. She was richly blessed by 11 grandchildren to whom she was a loving Grandmother: Matthew Wright, Vicki Mitchem, Jackie Richmond, Deborah Wilson, Andrew Wright, Robyn Robertson, Dennis Mitchem, Joey Mitchem, Katie Mitchem, Gary Sarver and Judy Richards. She had 13 great grandchildren. Idleane is also survived by brother-in-law, Troy Mitchem and his wife Jean, sisters-in-law, Mildred Ann Malcolm and Sue Warden as well as several nieces and nephews, whom affectionately called her "Aunt Idleane." Idleane and Roy enjoyed traveling. They often took long trips to visit family and friends. She enjoyed her needlework and was actively working on several projects. She enjoyed having a house full of people to laugh and visit with while providing everyone with food that warmed the soul. Idleane was a pillar of strength for her family. She not only raised her own children but also her younger siblings. Many would call her house home over the years, as their door was always open to those who needed it. Independent, stubborn, feisty, strong, creative, generous, caring, honest, faithful, mother, grandmother, friend and most of all LOVED… these are all words that describe Idleane. All who knew her loved her and she will be missed by all. Idleane was a member of the Freedom Baptist Church at Powley's Creek. Funeral services will be held Thursday, June 27, at 3 p.m. at the Melton Mortuary Chapel with Pastor Pete Cook officiating. Burial will follow in the Mt. Tabor Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until the service time. Grandsons will serve as pallbearers. The Mitchem family would like to thank the staff of Raleigh General Hospital and the Bower's Hospice House for Idleane's wonderful care and the compassionate words to the family during this difficult time.2 She was born on March 1, 1923 at Coal City, Raleigh Co., West Virginia.7,6,8 As of April 6, 1941,her married name was Mitchem.2 She married Roy Dennis Mitchem Sr. on April 6, 1941 at Glen Daniel, Raleigh Co., West Virginia.3,9,1,2,10,8 Idleane Maggie Roop died on June 23, 2013 at Beckley, Raleigh Co., West Virginia, at age 90.7,2,6
