Obituary

Mary Hockenberg, 101, of Des Moines, died on December 5, 2009. Mary was born in Racine, Wisconsin, the youngest of four daughters of Morris and Sophie Gottlieb. In 1947 she married Ira Hockenberg who predeceased her 1996.

Mary was known for her no-nonsense approach to life, her keen dry sense of humor, and her own special ways of helping others; among which were the countless hours she spent as a Braille transcriber.

She will truly be missed by her nieces, grandnieces, grandnephews and by Ira's niece, nephews and cousins.

The family thanks Janet Freel of Legs on Lease for her invaluable help and devotion.

Memorial contributions may be made to Tifereth Israel Synagogue or IRIS (Iowa Radio Reading Information Service) 100 E Euclid Ave, Des Moines, Iowa 50313.

Private graveside services were held Tuesday, December 8, 2009 in Jewish Glendale Cemetery.
