Our precious mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Katherine L. Hoxie, passed from this life Jan. 14, 2018, after a courageous battle with multiple myeloma. She was born in Kingsley on April 18, 1928. On June 16, 1950, Katherine Riley married Eugene Lawton Hoxie in Traverse City. They resided in the house Gene built for many years, raising their four children. They later bought an 80 acre farm in Kingsley where they lived the remainder of their lives, adding 11 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Gene passed from this life in 2013.
Those who knew and loved Katherine admired her wit, strength and endless family love. Her passing has created an enormous void in our lives.
Surviving Katherine, other than her immediate family, are several relatives and friends, including her dear sisters, Lucille E. Lewis and Elsie M. Larcom, and treasured nieces, Kathleen Cherry and Yvonne Kaehler.
Cremation has taken place and, per Katherine's request, no public service will be held.

The family is being served by Life Story Funeral Home of Traverse City.
