Mary Ann June (Borchardt) Hoeft, 90, of Wausau, left this life to be with the Lord, Wednesday, December 16, 2020. Mary Ann was born June 23rd, 1930 to Nora (Mais) and Oscar Borchardt.
On May 8th, 1948, Mary Ann married the love of her life, Lloyd Hoeft, who she met while he was working as a cab driver. They celebrated 63 wonderful years together before his passing in 2012. She was an LPN and worked in a funeral home before leaving her profession to devote her time to raising her children. Later in life, she worked at Wendy’s, Harry’s Farmers Market, and Sam’s Club before retiring.
Mary Ann is survived by her loving sister, Beverly Krueger; and children, Sandra (Dick) Arps, Vivian Colassacco, Jacqueline (Gary) Spulak, Luann Taves, Pennie Hoeft, Lloyd (Nancy) Hoeft, Jr., and Dawn Sheriff; special granddaughter, Michelle (Jamie) Dever; as well as cousins, nieces, and nephews. Mary Ann is further survived by numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Lloyd George Hoeft, Sr.; daughter, Jenny Lynn Hoeft; father, Oscar Borchardt, and mother, Nora (Mais) Borchardt; and brother Reuben Borchardt.
She loved her family, friends, search-a-word, bingo, making people laugh, and helping others. She always encouraged her children to do better and often stated that she remembered all her family in her daily prayers.
There were many obstacles in her life, but she fought a great fight and will be missed by so many. She was a great woman of courage and faith and although she is no longer here on this earth, she will never be forgotten as she was loved by so many. Our family would also like to thank the caregivers at Mount View Care Center, Wausau, for the care provided over the last couple of years.
Private family funeral services are being held. Pastor Rob Love of Immanuel Baptist Church will officiate. Interment will be in Restlawn Memorial Park, Wausau. Family and friends may go to www.helke.com to leave words of remembrance and online condolences.
