Jean M. Hoggatt

December 9, 1932 — December 22, 2021

Jean M. Hoggatt, of Waukesha, formerly of Sheboygan, died on Wednesday, December 22, 2021 at the age of 89. She was born in Kitzville, Minnesota on December 9, 1932, the daughter of Tony and Anica Tomasetti. On June 14, 1958, she was united in marriage to Gerald “Gerry” Hoggatt, and together they resided in Sheboygan for over 46 years. He preceded her in death on February 5, 2011, after 52 years of marriage.

While in Sheboygan, Jean became a devoted follower of Jesus and was an active member of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church. Once her children were in school full-time, she began working at Mead Public Library - a career that spanned 35 years. Along with her husband Gerry, she enjoyed walking (logging thousands of miles through the streets and parks of Sheboygan), dancing, attending live musical and theatrical performances, and traveling. She also loved to read, not only for herself, but also to her children and grandchildren and, after retirement, to children in schools where she volunteered. Jean was a woman of great character and values. She was honest, hardworking, committed, sweet, kind, and humble. She was deeply committed to her immediate and extended family and went to great lengths to stay connected with them. She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren.

She will be sadly missed by her sons, Scott (Judy) Hoggatt of Pewaukee and Ross (Jennifer) Hoggatt of Waukesha; her grandchildren: Joanna (Daniel) Dorbin, Gabriella Hoggatt, Michael Hoggatt, Joshua Hoggatt, Luke (Sarah) Hoggatt, Matthew Hoggatt, Danica Hoggatt and Sophia Hoggatt. She is further survived by her sister Marge Zobel of Rochester, MN, her sister-in-law Gail Hoggatt of Euless, Texas, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. In addition to her husband, Gerry, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Ann Roberts, Tony Pogerels, Bertha Mittermann, and Joseph, Robert, and Walter Tomasetti.
