Lauren Love Light

Elizabeth Lauren Hoover, 26, was called home to be with Jesus on March 23, 2016 after a tragic auto accident on March 2 in Breckenridge, Colorado.
Lauren was born August 1, 1989 in Colorado Springs to Harvey Bantleon "Banty" and Jill Ann (Gardner) Hoover. She graduated from Coronado High School in 2008 and attended Metro State College in Denver and Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge, majoring in business marketing. She was gifted with an entrepreneurial spirit in the field of alternative medicine, health, and fashion design. She excelled
in the discipline of yoga and was working towards becoming an instructor. Lauren was a marathon-runner, expert snowboarder, artist, and enjoyed many sports including cheerleading, hiking (climbing fourteener's), tennis, soccer and had a passion for traveling. Lauren competed in figure skating for many years and won several gold medals. She loved Jesus and participated in several mission trips through church and Uncharted Waters Sports Ministry. She had the voice of an
angel and loved the theater, playing lead roles in many classic musical productions including The Wizard of Oz, Annie, High School Musical, and Oliver. Elizabeth Lauren is survived by her parents, Banty and Jill
Hoover, her sister, Elise Ann (Hoover) King and husband, Noah, and their two sons, Miles and Mason Hoover, and Myra Elizabeth King (born the day before Lauren's death), all of Colorado Springs, her fiancée, Brandon Austin of Breckenridge, and their son Jayden of Hoboken, NJ. There are numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. We would like to acknowledge our family, church, and countless
friends, who have come along side us in love, prayer, and support during these past three weeks as our little girl fought bravely for her life. 

Anyone who has had an opportunity to be around Lauren Hoover knows how beautiful and invigorating her spirit is. You may know her from her many walks of life, from growing up in Colorado Springs, to her adventerous mountain lifestyle. She is currently residing in Breckenridge with her fiance Brandon Austin who has also been a tremendous support to her over the past seven years.
Lauren has a reputation for being very active in the community, particularly involving her outdoor hobbies, such as: running, snowboarding, and yoga. She often volunteers her time towards local community events and causes. She is currently attending classes at Colorado Mountain College, studying for a degree in business.
She has experienced a lot in her young life, and has always proven to come out stronger on the other side. Her desire to succeed as an entrepenuer, and her willingness to do anything for her friends and family proves the love, strength, and courage that she never fails to share with others. She comes from a family who belives in the power of miracles through Jesus, and we know that she has the love of Jesus in her heart too. We ask that you would band with our family and come in agreement that she will have a fast, full-recovery.  

On March 2, 2016 Lauren Hoover was involved in a serious car accident on her way to work from Breckenridge to Silverthorne, CO at around 8:00 a.m. The weather conditions were extremely poor. She is suffering from severe brain injuries and currently there is no telling what her recovery time will look like. Right now, Lauren, Brandon, and her family are expecting a minimum of $20,000 in medical expenses, which doesn't include her living expenses over the next several months during her recovery. If you feel compelled to assist Lauren along her healing journey, please make a contribution today. Nothing is too big or too small. Thank you so much for loving Lauren.

"Love and Light"

Lauren, Brandon, and Family
