Obituary

Hooey (nee Wilson), Pauline Lillian
1929-2018

Pauline Lillian Hooey (nee Wilson) of Hespero, Alberta, loving wife of Arthur Grant Hooey. Grandmother of 15, great grandmother of 21, Auntie, sister-in-law and good friend, born to Howard & Ida Wilson in Vulcan, Alberta on November 7, 1929. She passed away to her heavenly home on September 3, 2018 at the age of 88 years at the Covenant Care Villa Marie Care Center.

Our Mother with a life of careers, a trusted daughter to help, a wife to support and love, daughter-in-law with a caring and nurturing heart. A mother to raise, teach and nurture with skills of plenty.

She was not just our mother, but a mother to many family and others. When there was a need she found a way to fill it. Always hard working giving to others of her time. She rode her favorite horse Kid, which she talked about a lot, to Daisy Nook School. A cook first learned on a thrashing crew, later she put her skills to use in restaurants and private homes. While doing all of that she was caring for her parents and sister Darlene. Helping farm the homestead her father cleared. Grant and she built the home we were all raised in. As years went by they decided that Grant should go to school to get his mechanic certificate. So off they went to Calgary. Her parents cared for her three oldest, while they were in Calgary their fourth child was born into the family. She worked for a family as a chef/Nanny while Grant went to tech school. She then got her hairdressing degree and worked in that field for a short time. She found a calling for her caring heart working in nursing homes thereafter. Her career began in Red Deer at West Park nursing home as well as Parkland nursing home. While working in the West Park nursing home she got her L.P.N degree. She went to Michener Center to use her degree (15 years), obtained her Pharmacy Certificate and worked as a supervisor.

Pauline had planned and enjoyed many trips for family and friends to the Philippines, Mexico and more to receive healing methods she had learned of. All the time enjoying being a loving grandmother preparing her famous chocolate chip cookies, baking powder biscuits and pancakes/waffles.

Hosting many years of celebration and in their home, special holiday dinners. This is where the farming was handy. Large gardens, raising sheep, chickens as well as always milking cows over the years to feed the many mouths.

A new change came when she injured her knee at work which ended her career as a nurse requiring a knee replacement. By this time, they had sold the house to their daughter and son-in-law and moved across the yard to a smaller home. After some healing time, they planted flowers, a garden, greenhouse and enjoyed their bird feeder and hummingbirds. They welcomed everyone in for tea and cookies. After she healed, being at home was not her thing so she became a nanny for a family of three girls while still babysitting grandkids a lot of the time. Grant had retired at this time and started his home business of Hooey’s Auto Repair. Sometime after this, they went on an Alaskan cruise which was a great traveling experience that they enjoyed a lot.

She leaves behind her loving husband Arthur Grant Hooey of 72 years. Her children Howard Hooey, Bonnie (Victor) Smith, Cheryl (Gerry) Robinson, Sylvia (Bernie) Sundsten, Mark Hooey (Blagica Ristosk), Margret Hooey, John Street and Dean Hooey.
