Born in Lowell, Ind. August 2, 1885, her maiden name was Mildred Garrison. It was in Lowell that she met and was married to Mathias Hoevet, November 2, 1910, who at that time resided in that city. About 20 years ago Mr. Hoevet was transferred to the Waterford office of the Wilbur Lumber Co., where he has since made his home and acted as manager for the local branch.
Mrs. Hoevet was a faithful and devoted member of the Waterford M.E. church and a member of the Royal Neighbor lodge and was endeared to an exceptionally large circle of friends because of her keen interest in the community generally, and specifically because she was at all times of a most cheerful disposition. She and her husband have built two homes in Waterford, in this substantial way evidencing their unswerving faith in the community in which they live. Selling their first home, they broke ground in June '37 for a new and modern home which in itself is truly a model of perfection into which they moved about a year ago. She is survived by her husband and two sons, Garrison, age 26 years, and Robert, age 16 years; one granddaughter, as well as two sisters, Mrs. Ella Tanner and Mrs. Silas Hogan, both of Lowell, Ind.
Funeral services were held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday from the late residence and at 2 p.m. from the Methodist church by Rev. D.L. Wandschneider. On Monday the body was taken to Lowell, Ind., where burial took place in the family lot. Burial services at Lowell were conducted by Rev. D.L. Wandschneider. Besides the immediate family the following, of Waterford, accompanied the remains and attended the services at Lowell: Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Graf, Mr. and Mrs. Quentin Anderson, Mr. and Mrs. Milton Rebstock and Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Noll.
An indication of the popularity and esteem among the many friends of this family can be had when it was learned that an entire truck load of flowers was taken to Lowell with the body, a token of true devotion to a departed one.
