Mina Jane Hock, a 20-year resident of Penn Valley, died at home Jan. 24. She was 79.

A memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13, at Sacred Heart Catholic Parish, 13716 Saratoga Ave., Saratoga.

She was born in Weeping Water, Neb., on Oct. 19, 1930, to Edward E. and Marie Jennette Lorensen.

She met the man who would become her loving husband, Owen Hock, at the University of Nebraska, where she graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in 1952.

She was actively involved with P.E.O. for more than 60 years and was past president.

While living in Chicago, she was a member of the North Shore Harmonizers Group.

Mrs. Hock appreciated the beauty of nature and was a passionate artist, leaving behind beautiful doll creations for future generations.

Most importantly, she walked with the Lord. She was a devoted Christian, wife and mother, spreading God’s love to her family and friends.

Her twinkling eyes, endless love and beauty will shine on in those she touched. Those who knew and still love her feel blessed to have known such a beautiful person, and know it is now her time to rest with the Lord. She will be deeply missed.
