On Friday, September 18, 2020, with her family by her side, Christine Hoeck (nee Soerensen) passed away peacefully at the age of 92 at St. Joseph's Residence.
Christine was born in Stedesand, Germany, where she met the love of her life and husband, Helmut Hoeck, who predeceased her in 2005. Together they had two of their children in Germany, Harald (1949-1979) and Ingrid, and later moved to Canada in 1955, where they had two more children, Bert and Joan.
Mom worked as a nurse's aide at the Middlechurch Home in West St. Paul for many years, where she cared deeply for the elderly residents, always making them feel loved and cared for.
She found great joy in her family. We spent summers tenting at Patricia Beach and later at our cottage at Hillside Beach. She made every holiday special and we thank her for the life time of memories she gave to us.
Thank you mom for your generous, kind spirit and fun sense of humour. You are beautiful, inside and out.
She is finally back in the arms of her loving husband, where she has wanted to be for a very long time. Rest in peace mom, we will miss you so much. We love you to the moon and back.
Love from your loving family. Ingrid (Bob), Joan (Albert), Bert (Noreen), and your loving grandchildren, Kaitlin (Tyler), Heather (Steve), Mathew (Jessica), Darren, Jennifer and Lisa.
Thank you to the staff of St. Joseph's Residence for the special care they gave our mom.
In accordance with our mom's wishes, there will be no service. Cremation and burial has taken place.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I have such fond memories of Mrs. Hoeck. She was such a caring women who was always ready to help you. If you had a cut, sore or rash she would eagerly apply her first aid remedies. Once you were bandaged up you often looked like your injuries were worse than they really were, but the love she shared with you was very special and was appreciated. You could always tell that the milk man had been at the Hoeck’s house first because he would have Penatin cream liberally applied to all of his facial frost bite injuries!! Mrs. Hoeck’s baking was also a great treat to experience. I hung out there often because Mrs. Hoeck would ALWAYS ask you if you were hungry!! The Dacombe family extends our deepest sympathies to all of the Hoeck family during this difficult time. Mr. & Mrs. Hoeck were always great neighbours. - Posted by: Len Dacombe (Neighbour (friend of Bert)) on: Sep 27, 2020

  • To Ingrid, Joan and Bert, I am very sorry to read of the passing of your mother, and to Kailtin and Heather, your grandmother. I remember spending many beautiful Christmas eve's at Christine and Helmut's house. They were always very warm and welcoming, and made you always feel at home. I am sure that Christine will always be remembered by her grandchildren as the fun loving Grandma that she was. I am truly sorry for your loss.

  • It was a joy to work with Chris, as we knew her, and she was indeed a very caring and loving caregiver during her years at Middlechurch Home. - Posted by: pat psooy (co-worker) on: Sep 26, 2020
