Judy F. Hoesly

Judy F. Hoesly, age 73, of Huntsville, passed away on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, at home surrounded by friends and family after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. 

Judy was born in Wise County Virginia on March 2,1950, to the late Ralph and Anna Dingus. She spent her early childhood years growing up in Southwestern Virginia graduating from Rye Cove High School and attended Hiawassee College. Judy was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society and graduated with honors. While at Hiwassee, Judy met her life-long friend Sue Lessenberry. That friendship led to a blind date arranged by Sue that resulted in marriage to Richard Hoesly.  

Judy was a devoted wife and mother who will be remembered for her kind and generous nature. She was passionate about gardening and was a Master Gardener.  Her exceptional green thumb brightened her surroundings. Judy loved to travel with family, especially to Walt Disney World and enjoyed the times spent there during the Christmas holidays especially all the decorations.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Wayne, Kenneth, Carol (Guy) Arwood, and Willard Dingus. 

Judy is survived by her loving husband, Richard; son, James;  grandchildren, Hope (Jaymes) Iwamoto, Kaitlyn (Drew) Boldin, and Mackenzie Hoesly; great grandchildren, Jasper & Jensen Iwamoto, Greyson Boldin; siblings, Jimmy (Jo), Ronnie (Brenda), Raymond (Jeanette), Margaret (Daryl) Hurd, Linda Falin; sister-in-laws Betty Dingus, Phyllis Payne, and several nieces and nephews. 

The family would like to recognize and thank the care givers from Home Instead and Hospice of North Alabama who have given compassionate care and dignity during her daily struggles. A special message of thanks goes out to Ms Shelia Banks and Nurse Jennifer Hineman.
