She loved entertaining and taking trips to the lake house in Crandon, which she affectionately named “Hoeyaluiah.” She was an avid Green Bay Packers and a Milwaukee Brewers fan.

Hoey; her children, Donna Hoey of Wauwatosa, WI, Jeffrey (Eileen) Hoey and Susan (Willard) Wenck, both of Racine; her grandchildren, Rebecca Hoey of Racine, Robert (Heidi) Hoey of Racine, Elizabeth (Richard) Kresen of Elkhorn, and Joseph (Dakota) Mandli of Lake Geneva; six great-grandchidren, Emma, Reagan, Richard, Kendall, Madigan and Josie; brother, Frank (Rose Mary) Matusinec of Milwaukee; as well as other family and many friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, and her in-laws George and Ivah Hoey.
