Andrea Jean Hoover
Age 70, of New Sewickley Twp., passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 18, 2022. Born March 13, 1952, daughter of the late John and Madeline (Kenieczny) Bilik. Beloved wife of Walter W. Hoover, whom she married on Nov. 23, 1991; loving mother of Jackie (Kevin) Rycyna, Amanda (Matt) Grubbs, Nicholas (Lauren) Adrian, and Aaron (Chelsea) Adrian; Mimi of Madeline, Nathan, Brooklyn, Jacob, Henry, Ellie, Nora, and Ethan; sister of Bernadette Bilik, Patricia (Jerry) Miele, and the late John Bilik. Andrea is also survived by her nephew Justin (Deborah) Bilik and niece Kristie (Anthony) Pasculli as well as many loving cousins, family and friends who will all miss her dearly.

Andrea graduated from WVU in 1976 and worked as a dietician for long term care facilities for 25 years before transitioning into real estate at Howard Hanna. Her real estate co-workers quickly became her second family and her clients were always a top priority.

Above all else, Andrea was a devoted wife, mother, Mimi, and friend. She gave of herself endlessly to ensure her family and friends were always loved and cared for. No sacrifice was too big for her if it could help a loved one in need. She lived her life every day spreading joy and laughter to all who knew her. Andrea’s love will always surround us.

Family and friends are welcome on Thursday from 3-7 pm at Devlin Funeral Home of Cranberry, 2678 Rochester Road, Cranberry Twp. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday at 11 am at St. Ferdinand Church, with Rev David Egan officiating. Interment will follow at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Warrendale.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made in Andrea’s name to Children’s Hospital Free Care Fund.

  • Sandy McKeever

    I worked with Andrea when she was in long term care which was a long time ago. I was sad to hear of her passing because she was a real treasure. I don’t know if she ever wasn’t smiling. I feel fortunate that we crossed paths. And I will always remember her sense of humor and her natural kindness. God bless her family and friends.

  • Jill Sunday

    While Andrea and I haven’t seen each other for a long time, she’s always been in my heart. We were new moms together, and for many years, our days began and ended in each other’s kitchens. We grew up as mothers together, and the sound of our kids going around our houses on their big wheels brought us joy. Andrea, thanks for the laughs, advice, meatball recipe, and love. Walt, Jackie, Nick, and Aaron—my heart breaks for you.

  • John and Claudia Hughes

    John and I are so sorry to hear of your loss. As long time friends of John Bilik we came to know Andrea many years ago when she would visit her brother in New Jersey . We were always so fond of her and although we saw her only infrequently over the years,we kept up with her life through John and his children Justin snd Kristie. When we did see her, she always had a ready smile and warm familiarity. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. Surround yourselves with all the good memories.

    I am saddened and shocked about Andrea’s sudden passing. She was a loving, classy lady. I have to tell this story, circa 2009 when my world as I knew it shattered when my husband died suddenly in 2008. We were living a beautiful life in Cape Cod. I was fortunate to have Andrea help me find a home back in Pittsburgh by my son. She worked so hard, and was so compassionate and patient with me. Long story short, we thought we found the house, and I flew down with a check in hand; had only seen pictures, but it looked great (not her listing). Upon arrival, it was clear I would have had to invest another 50,000 or so into it. We were both so disappointed. Upon leaving, we drove past a home that looked perfect, but was for sale by owner…and another sign with a realtor’s name on it. She wanted me to see it, but I refused because it wasn’t in the MLS, and I told her she worked so hard and deserved the commission. You know what she said? She said she didn’t care, that it was more important to her that given all I was through that I have a home that was five doors up from my son. THAT was who she was! While we both had busy lives, we would run into each other…she was always such a joy, and was so concerned with others. I always loved seeing her happy FB pictures……she was called home way too soon. My sympathy to all. Kate Maseth-Ready

    Walt and Kids I am in shock. My heart is heavy for you all .

  • Katrinka Knerr

    This news broke my heart. Andrea was such a sweet woman and ALWAYS the life of the party. As a college friend of Jackie’s, our friend group looked forward to the times when Andrea would come to town to visit. She always treated us as one of her own. Her vivacious personality, humor, and loving nature will be missed. I know so many of her great qualities will live on in her children (and grandchildren) who she adored and loved so very much. I am thinking about her family during this difficult time and want them to know I will carry fond memories of Andrea with me.

  • Cynthia LytleAndrea

    Andrea was the type of friend that never changed and it did not matter how long you did not see each other, you just picked up where you left off. Taken from us too soon, I will miss her intensely. She had such a zest for life and loved her family more than words can say. Always a smile on her face and running in multiple directions at the same time. She was a loyal friend. As much love as she gave, I hope she realizes how much we all loved her. There will never be another like her.
