Callie Hoegeman, 79, Batesville, died Sunday, April 16, 2017, at her home.
Born Oct. 19, 1937, in Burning Springs, Kentucky, she was the daughter of Amanda (Lunsford) and Samuel Jewell. She married Albert Hoegeman Sr. July 20, 1956, in Brookville, and he preceded her in death Dec. 25, 2010.
She was a homemaker and a member of Batesville Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 1130 and the Batesville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3183 Ladies Auxiliary.
Callie enjoyed trying her luck at the casino, playing bingo or in a poker game. She and Albert liked walking in the woods, fishing and taking drives, looking for new fishing holes to try. For years she bowled in leagues, got a kick out of playing video games and, according to her family, was an excellent cook whose chicken and dumplings and banana pudding will be sorely missed.
Callie was a Colts fan or a Peyton Manning fan depending on who you asked and her family laughed that while she never held a golf club in her life, she followed it on TV and was a diehard Tiger Woods fan and more recently rooted for Rickie Fowler.
What she loved best was having the family together and spending time with her grandkids.
Callie is survived by her daughters Margaret Barry, Greensburg, and Brenda Allen, Batesville; sons Don Hoegeman, Batesville, Willie Hoegeman, Milan, and Dave Hoegeman, Sunman; brother James Jewell, North Vernon; 20 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.
In addition to her husband and parents, she was also preceded in death by her son Albert Hoegeman Jr.; brothers Carlos, Samuel, Ted and Homer Jewell; and sisters Maggie Gilbreath and Lucy Cranfill.
Visitation is Thursday, April 20, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services follow at 1 p.m. with the Rev. Steve Yeaton officiating and burial will be in St. John's Huntersville Cemetery. The family requests memorials to the American Lung Association.
