Obituary Notice

Dorothy Hoin (nee Banat), long time resident of East Tawas, passed away June 4th 2021, age 86 years.  Dorothy was born on June 12, 1934, raised in Detroit, the daughter of Polish and Lithuanian immigrants.   Dorothy was a beautiful woman who grew up during the automotive boom in Detroit, and attended Pershing High school where she met her husband, Roy.  They married, moved to the newly minted suburbs of Detroit (Roseville) and raised a family of eight children.   Dorothy and Roy retired and moved to Michigan's beautiful "up north" in 1979 to be near her father. She finished raising her family in East Tawas. Dorothy was preceded in death by son Victor in 1980 and her Husband of 52 years, Roy, in 2006. Dorothy is survived by  her other children:  David (Wendy), Steven (Laura), Jeanne, Janice, Thomas, Frank (Jen) and Roy.  She is also survived by her grandchildren Thomas, Kate, Andrew, Ashley, Spencer, Julia, Savanna, Roy, Carleigh, Cassidy, and Alexandra and great grandchildren Layla, Madeleine, and Henry. 

Dorothy was a devoted catholic and enjoyed her family and friends, and was always supportive and positive under the most arduous conditions. Dorothy was a kind and generous soul who welcomed all to her home. She was a great cook, an avid reader, a weaver and a lover of the outdoors. And Dorothy was a card shark!

Condolences

Aunt Dorothy was my favorite aunt and like a second mother to me. I spent a lot of time with her and my cousins in Roseville. After having 8 kids around, what was one more!

We will miss our visits to her home where she greeted us with warmth, kindness and great food. We will miss our annual trip to St. Vincents where she made sure we always returned to Florida with bags of great stuff. But most of all, we will miss chatting and laughing with Dorothy while watching the sunset over the lake and munching on fresh cucumbers from her garden. God bless her on her way.

We offer our sincere sympathy on behalf of the Grand Rapids Accordion Ensemble, an group of which Jeanne Hoin is a member. Losing an immediate family member is a difficult journey. We know Jeanne was very close to her mother and the "journey" can be made easier by relying and family and friends. Our Ensemble is a surrogate family for all who belong and Jeanne is certainly a friend and major contributor. Kind wishes to Jeanne and the family.

Dorothy was a great woman. If we lived closer to each other we could have been fast friends. The Stell and Riddle families offer their deepest sympathies. A donation has been made in her memory to St. Vincent DePaul.

Aunt Dorothy was so great with all the kids, not only her own, but all of us that grew up catching bugs, playing baseball and hanging out at the Hoin house. We always felt safe and loved at the Hoin house. Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Roy were special people we are all blessed to be part of their extended family.

We met Dorothy in 2010 on her front porch one beautiful Sunday. She instantly became a permanent part of our lives. Her personality, attitude, and outlook on life was wonderful. Often we don’t realize how special someone is until they are gone. With Dorothy you knew immediately how special she was. We enjoyed her every day. Truly, she gave us lifetime memories.
— John/Susan Van Bramer
Dorothy was a beautiful lady with a heart of gold! I met her through Janice and Ashley and loved her the minute I met her. She has a beautiful family who love her and will dearly be missed, but what great memories she leaves behind. The angels in heaven are rejoicing ! Prayers for the entire family.

To all of the Hoin extended family,
We are saddened to hear about the recent loss of Mrs. Hoin. She was a superb Mom, raising eight children. That task alone deserves timeless recognition. A true matriarch.

Mrs. Hoin was a pillar of the neighborhood, and was admired by many.

And a special thank you to all of the eight children of the Hoin family from the five Schoel kids for making our growing years together on Fortuna street in Roseville very safe and very, very special.

Our thoughts are with all of you.
— Steve Schoel
