Inez M. Hoggard
1926 ~ 2013

Inez May Chambers Wolf Hoggard, age 86, passed away on February 19, 2013 at 10:27 p.m. in the home of her daughter in Sandy, Utah. She was born May 7, 1926 in Colgate, Saskatchewan, Canada, the youngest child of Michael Benjamin Chambers and Pearl Margaret Gordon Chambers. Her older sister and brother, Viola Belle Chambers Stavenger and Gordon Bruce Chambers, preceded her in death.

Inez attended school in Canada. In 1938 she moved with her mother to Ohio. Her father died when she was only 12 years old and she often expressed her sadness at his early death as she had a close relationship with him. Inez graduated from high school in San Bernardino, California in 1944. She returned to Ohio upon her graduation and married Warren Gail Wolf on June 12, 1945 in Tiffin, Ohio after he returned from the European Theater of Operations during World War II. He completed 35 missions as a navigator on B-17 bombers. Warren became a lawyer and a judge in Tiffin. Three children were born to their marriage: Christina Lynn, 1948 (she died in infancy); Sheila May, 1950; and Sheldon Gail, 1952. Inez and Warren divorced in 1957. In Tiffin, Ohio Inez served as president of the Federation of Women’s Club.

In 1956, Inez contacted David O. McKay, President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at that time, and requested that he send the missionaries to Tiffin to establish a branch as the nearest church was a 50-miles round trip. Early church meetings were held in Warren’s law office and were attended by Inez, her family, including her mother, and one investigator. These were humble times. Today, a beautiful Chapel holds a much larger congregation in Tiffin.

Inez was an active member. Her church jobs included: Relief Society President, Relief Society Counselor, Gospel Doctrine and Spiritual Living teacher, Sunday School and MIA teacher and Merit Badge Counselor for the Scouting Program. She was always proud that her son served a mission in California and Nevada and that her daughter served a Stake Mission in American Fork, Utah. In addition, three grandchildren served missions: Charles Max Wolf in Cape Town, South Africa; Nathan John Wolf in Seattle, Washington; and Karen Lynn Wolf Mayer in Des Moines, Iowa. All four of her stepchildren also served missions: Jeffery Hoggard in Alabama; Lori Hoggard in Costa Rica, Jason Hoggard in Argentina, and Katie Hoggard in Georgia.

In 1962, Inez moved with her children and mother to Salt Lake City. She married Max Hoggard in 1965; their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on May 20, 1976 and her three children were sealed to them. They lived on Max Hoggard’s farm in American Fork, Utah for many years and then built a home in Lehi in 1996.

Inez and Max served a two-year mission in 1994-95 with the LDS Bishops’ Storehouse in Lindon. After the death of Max, Inez served a two-year mission at the Timpanogos Temple in American Fork from 2005 to 2007.

For 37 years, Inez worked as a secretary, first with the Tiffin State Hospital, then with International Harvester in Salt Lake, and finally with the Utah State Prison in Draper where she worked with the Deputy Warden Leon Hatch. Her hobbies included various crafts, sewing, and oil painting, primarily of Native Americans.

Inez was preceded in death by her husband Max who died March 4, 2004; her daughter Christina who passed away on October 2, 1948; and her grandson Steven Gail Wolf who died in infancy on May 5, 1978. She is survived by her daughter Sheila; her son Sheldon (Lou Ann Ipson); and their children Charles (Amy Maynard), Lori (David Lillie), Nathan (Heline Schaffer), Karen (Joshua Mayer), and Mary (Stephen Ostler). She is also survived by her stepson Bruce Hoggard (Terree Hullinger) and their children: Jeffery (Vicki Higginson), Lori, Kathryn (Garrett Burton), and Jason. In addition, seven great-grandchildren survive her: Brycen, Logan, Oneyla, Gwenevere, Gareth, Ethan, and Eric.

We express our sincere thanks to Symbii Hospice and all the doctors, nurses, and aides who lovingly and tenderly cared for our dear mother in her last months. And we express our thanks to all friends and relative for their love and support.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, February 25, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. in the Warenski Funeral Home Chapel, 1776 North 900 East, American Fork, Utah. Family and friends may call Monday morning from 10:00-11:00 a.m. prior to services. Burial will be in the American Fork Cemetery.
