Patricia Hoesly Obituary

A celebration of life will be held for Patricia E. Hoesly, 74, of North Bend, on Saturday, June 1, 2024 from 2-5 p.m. at the Coos History Museum, 1210 N. Front Street in Coos Bay. Cremation rites have been held and an urnside gathering will take place at Sunset Memorial Park as a private family event.

Pat was born on September 19, 1949 in Toledo, Oregon to William and Mary Harris and was the oldest of three sisters. She also had a special relationship with Bill and Reatha Horn of Vernonia, Oregon, her foster parents through high school.

Pat passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on February 11, 2024. She was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, and friend who will be greatly missed.

In 1970, Pat married Thomas Hoesly and moved to North Bend, Oregon for his job with Menasha Corporation. She was endlessly supportive of his career and enjoyed their many social activities with employees and their spouses. Pat worked for a time at College Park Day Care. She was an excellent cook both at home, and for the daycare.

Pat once said that she felt she’d been put on this earth to be a mother and grandmother. She raised three children and could be found at their many activities through the years. The children have fond memories of numerous vacations together as a family. Pat became a grandmother in 1994 and we all agree she was one of the best – always asking about how each of the grandchildren was doing as they explored life. Pat’s three children, four grandchildren, and four step-grandchildren are now scattered across the country, thriving from the solid foundation provided by both their parents and grandparents.

Pat’s favorite pastime was spending time with family and friends. Whether it was weekend getaways, vacations, Bunco, or Curves, it was clear her loved ones provided happiness and comfort. Pat was a thoughtful, caring person who recognized every birthday and anniversary for family and friends.

Patty is survived by her husband of 53 years, Tom; her children, Angela, Barbara, and Michael; grandchildren Austin, Jace, Audrey, and Grant; step-grandchildren Daniel, Lester, Seth, and Ryan; sister and brother-in-law Jan and Ted Breneman; sister, Sandy Allison; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Pat was preceded in death by both of her biological parents, William and Mary Harris; and foster parents, Bill and Reatha Horn.
