Obituary: Hoerner, Dorothy Mae

Age 87

HOERNER, Dorothy Mae
(Age 86)

Peacefully in her sleep Dorothy passed away on March 24, 2012.

She was born June 26, 1924 and raised in Lewistown, MT but spent most of her life as a hard working single parent of three children in Spokane Washington.

She was a devout catholic and in her later years met her second husband Clarence Hoerner with whom she spent a very enjoyable decade of life.

He preceded her in death and she is survived by her three children: sons kenneth and David DeSeve and daughter Deborah Holman, all of Spokane.

She also is survived by her sister Shirley and brother William Coyle of Great Falls, MT.
Although life was not easy she remained true to her core convictions and maintained her “sparky” sense of humor to the end.

With God’s speed and into His open arms may her spirit finally find the rest and peace she sought.

Her departure was made peaceful in large measure by hospice workers of Post Falls and her interment will be at Holy Cross Cemetery in Spokane.
