Callie Hoegeman, age 79 of Batesville, died Sunday, April 16, 2017 at her home. Born October 19, 1937, in Burning Springs, Kentucky, she is the daughter of Amanda (Nee: Lunsford) and Samuel Jewell. She married Albert Hoegeman Sr. July 20, 1956 in Brookville, Indiana and he preceded her in death December 25, 2010. She was a homemaker and a member of Batesville Eagles Aerie #1130 and the Batesville V.F.W. Post #3183 Ladies Auxiliary.Callie enjoyed trying her luck at the casino, playing bingo or in a poker game. She and Albert liked walking in the woods, fishing and taking drives, looking for new fishing holes to try. For years she bowled in leagues, got a kick out of playing video games and according to her family, was an excellent cook whose chicken and dumplings and banana pudding will be sorely missed. Callie was a Colts fan or a Peyton Manning fan depending on who you asked and her family laughed that while she’s never held a golf club in her life, she followed it on T.V. and was a diehard Tiger Woods fan and more recently rooted for Rickie Fowler. What she loved best was having the family together and spending time with her grandkids.Callie is survived by her daughters Margaret Barry of Greensburg, Indiana, Brenda Allen of Batesville; sons Don Hoegeman of Batesville, Willie Hoegeman of Milan, Indiana, Dave Hoegeman of Sunman, Indiana; brother James Jewell of North Vernon, Indiana; 20 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren.

Funeral services follow at 1 p.m. with Rev. Steve Yeaton officiating and burial will be in St. John’s Huntersville Cemetery. The family requests memorials to American Lung Association.
