Obituary for Martha Hocker

Martha Hocker, 91 of Drexel, Missouri went home to be with Jesus Thursday, June 27, 2019 at Crown Care in Harrisonville, Missouri. Funeral services will be held 11:00 am Friday, July 5, 2019 at the Drexel First Christian Church. A visitation will be held Friday prior to the service, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am, also at the church.

Martha Eleanor was born on March 17, 1928 to James Elbert Philpott and Floy Allene (Hook). She married her high school sweetheart, James Arthur Hocker, Jr., on May 21, 1946, after he returned from serving in World War II. They had three children: Barbara, Randy and Bill.

She served at Drexel Christian Church her whole life, often doing things behind the scenes, like sending birthday cards to her church family. For several years she also served as a librarian at the Drexel Public Library and worked as a cook at Wildwood Outdoor Camp near LaCygne, Kansas.

Grandma Martha was feisty with a sense of humor, and she loved her family. She loved the color red, as you might've noticed with her red lipstick, red shoes and red blouses. She enjoyed baking, knitting, reading, fishing, playing cards and watching sports. She passed on many of these hobbies to her children and grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her father, mother, step-father Walter Tucker, husband James Arthur Hocker, Jr., daughter Barbara Taylor and great-grandson Wyatt Deel. She is survived by her sons Randy Hocker and Bill Hocker and spouses, along with nine granddaughters, 17 great-grandchildren, and eight great-great-grandchildren
