Tribute

Our Mother, Grandmother and Great grandmother Hildegard Hooge went to be with her Lord and Savior on October 27, 2015 at the age of 89.  She was born to George and Katharina (Penner) Derksen on January 29, 1926 in Fisherville, ON . Her twin died at birth. She was married November 13, 1954 to George Henry Hooge. They purchased a farm on the corner of Ross Rd and Downes Rd, where their first 2 girls were born. In 1963 they purchased a raspberry farm on Bradner Rd, where they lived for 24 years and were blessed with another girl and a boy. In 1970 Shan An also joined the family as a son. In 1989 they retired moving to a condo in Clearbrook, where she lived till her passing.  She was always a hard worker and the glue that held the family together. She had polio as a young girl, which affected her hearing greatly, but Mom was not one to let circumstances stop her; she just had to find ways around the tough things. She loved to play the accordian and got the whole family to sing together, despite the fact that she could not sing on key. She loved the Lord with all her heart, all her soul, and all her mind and loved her neighbours as herself. She loved to look after everyone who needed always finding something to give. She loved spending time with family!  She was predeceased by her husband George in 1999, her brother Adolf in 1942, and her sister-in-law, Lydia (Peter) Penner.  She is survived by her children : daughters  Charlotte(Don) Derksen, Jennifer(Leon) Stein, Miranda(Geoff) Dollinger; sons Gilbert(Marilyn) Hooge and Shan(Soogie) An.

From: Steven / Cathy Atkinson
Relation: Sister in law to Charlotte Derksen

Steven and I would like to give our sincere condolences to Don & Char and all The Hooge Family for their loss.

Your Mom was quite the woman, very strong, hard working, loved her children and a faith that never waivered.
Her lasting memory for me would be her passion for the lost. She wanted everyone to know the Lord. She also loved her children and grandchildren. She would call often to me if she remotely thought that Don and Char were in town and wondered if they were at my house already because she wanted to see her kids.
She would always ask about my family as well which showed her caring nature.

I wish all the family Gods Blessings and pray that the pain of their loss will grow dimmer with each passing day.
Steven & Cathy Atkinson
