Obituary for Marlys Hoines

Marlys Hoines, age 101, of Cresco, Iowa passed away on Monday, December 10, 2018 at the Evans Memorial Home in Cresco.

Marlys Juliet Hoines was born May 7, 1917, to Ole and Inga (Fulsaas) Melaas in Ridgeway, Iowa.  She was baptized and confirmed at Madison Lutheran Church in rural Ridgeway.  She attended country school through 8th grade, graduated from Ridgeway High School, and continued her education until graduating from Normal Training School in Cresco.  She returned to the Ridgeway area to teach rural school for 5 years.  

On June 29, 1940, she married Elder G. Hoines, moved to Cresco, and purchased the William Milz Drug Store.  Marlys managed the drug store while Elder pursued his degree in Pharmacy at the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy.  Elder and Marlys owned and operated the Hoines Drug Store for 41 years.  

Marlys' interests were family, cooking, traveling, golf, and entertainment involving friends and neighbors.  Christmas time was a very special time for her with the gathering of family and friends.
 
Marlys is survived by daughter Sonja & Dan Lively, Geoff & Punam Lively, and Emilia Lively; son John & Cindy Hoines, Kristen & Geoff Clark, Faith, Ben, and Grace Clark, Paul Hoines and Becca Mauch.  

Marlys was preceded in death by her husband Elder, her parents, sister Ila, and brother-on-law John Morton.
