On September 16, 2017 heaven called home one of its angels and the world said good-by to a strong, independent and loving woman – Nonalene “Nonie” Leilani Westberry Hoeszel.
Nonie was born on August 2, 1936 in Hawaii, grew up in Riverdale, Georgia, and most recently made home in Leesburg, Florida and “on the farm” in West Salem, Illinois. She was the loving wife of James “Jim” Hoeszel for nearly 28 years, and in that time, they made fantastic memories as they traveled the world…literally. Nonie loved to cook and work with her hands. She loved music and travel, and in general, living life to its fullest.
She is survived by her husband, James Hoeszle; children, Diane Stephenson, David Stephenson, Monna Rose, Bill Hoeszle and Jay Hoeszle; grandchildren Chester, Jonathon, Morgan, Cheree, Garrett, James, Michael, Aaron and Megan; and several great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Jane Patterson, and brothers Ben Westberry, Jr. and Jack Westberry. She is proceeded by her daughter, Debra Lee, and granddaughter, Courtney.
