Eileen was born on December 14, 1928, in Stratford, to Loren and Amanda (Viegut) Winistorfer. On October 24, 1964, she was united in marriage to Donald J. Hoesly at Zion Lutheran Church, Stratford. He passed away on June 27, 2014.

Eileen was a 1946 graduate of Stratford High School, then worked for Employers Mutual Insurance in Wausau until the time of their marriage. After raising their family, she became employed by Edgar Public Schools, serving as head cook from 1981 until 1991. She was a lifelong member of Zion Lutheran Church, where for many years she sent birthday and anniversary cards to all the members. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, Sudoku, following Wisconsin sports teams, and was a member of the Edgar Women’s Club.

Eileen was a devoted and loving wife, mother to her three children, and a very special Grandma/Gma to her seven grandchildren. She cherished them and loved to call them on a regular basis to see how their days went and to hear their voices. She always had cookies and grandma bars for when they stopped by.

She will also be remembered for knowing family and friends’ special days like birthdays and anniversaries. She took pride in remembering these dates or by using her Birthday Book where she had the dates recorded. Instead of sending a card, she would give many of them a call on their special day.

She is survived by her three children, Loralee (Jim) Mondl of St. Louis, MO, Terry (Tammy) Hoesly and Tammy (Terry) Freese, all of Edgar. She is also survived by her seven grandchildren, Brooke Freese, Alex Freese, Alayna Hoesly (Fiancé – Brandon Johnson), Nick Mondl, Daria Hoesly, Cam Mondl, and Malia Hoesly. She is further survived by a sister-in-law Alvina Winistorfer and a brother-in-law Robert Aschenbrenner.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, a brother Lamar Winistorfer, and sisters, Marcia (Wilbur) Bolen, Imogene (Harold) Custer, Beverly Aschenbrenner and Charlene (Robert) Breu.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial will be designated later. Condolences may be sent online to
