James L. Hoeing
James L. Hoeing, 62, a life-long resident of Rush County, passed away on June 15, 2019 at St. Francis Hospital in Indianapolis. Jim was born on July 31, 1956 in Rushville, Indiana to Wilbur and Juliann (Reuter) Hoeing. Jim graduated from Rushville High School in 1974. He married Pamela M. Fussner on July 12, 1980.
Jim began working at Hill Lawn Dairy, known today as Hoeing Livestock Farms, when he was in the 4th grade. Before going to school, Jim and his brothers would do the morning milking. His dad would place buckets upside down so they would be tall enough to place the milkers on the cows.
Jim was a member of the St. Mary Catholic Church in Rushville, and a friend to many.
He was most proud of his children, grandchildren, and the Hoeing Dairy. His hobbies included speaking with his friends, especially about the weather and how their crops were doing. A well-known Hoeing worry was what their next meal would consist of.
Surviving besides his wife are three children, Amy (Kyle) Robbins, Allison (Curtis) Collins, and Adam (Courtney) Hoeing, along with four grandsons, Cooper (Coop) Robbins, Colby (Brown Eyes) Robbins, Chance Eugene Robbins, and Marshall "D" Collins. He is also survived by his father, Wilbur A. (Myrna) Hoeing, and seven brothers, Richard (Diane) Hoeing, Kenneth (Denise) Hoeing, Donald (Maryalice) Hoeing, Kevin (Pam) Hoeing, Mike (Denise) Hoeing, Mark (Lori) Hoeing, and David (Karen) Hoeing all of Rush County as well as many nieces and nephews.
Jim was preceded in death by his mother, Juliann Hoeing, and a nephew, Kyle Hoeing.
A Mass of Christian burial will be 10:30 a.m. June 20, 2019, at St. Mary Catholic Church in Rushville with Rev. James M. Brockmeier officiating where all are welcome to come and pay their final respects to Jim. Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery in Rushville.
