Kathy is survived by her children, Stephanie (Jim McFarlin) Wyatt, Ankeny; Nicholas (Jamie) Hoyer, Aurora, IN; grandchildren, Justin Wyatt, Kadyn and Taryn Hoyer; and step-grandchildren Erika (Jake) Newman, Jake McFarlin, Keely McFarlin, Brian Wells and Tyler Wells. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Darrell, her son Troy, and her brothers, Merle, Ed, and Phil Angell.
Kathy M. Angell, the daughter of Henry and Alice (Law) Angell, was born September 23, 1944, in Fort Dodge. She graduated from Barnum High School in 1962. On November 8, 1963, Kathy was united in marriage to Darrell Hoyer at Trinity Lutheran Church. Kathy was a farm wife and also worked for over 30 years at Trinity Regional Hospital in a variety of roles. She retired from Trinity in 2011. Soon thereafter, she was employed with the Manson Area Community Center from 2012 until her death.
Kathy was an active member of Lifepoint Church in Manson, and in the past had attended and served at St. Paul’s Lutheran in both Manson and Fort Dodge, as well as Trinity Lutheran. She also kept busy with the Webster County Pork Producers while farming with her husband, was an avid member of the GOP and volunteered at the election polls for decades.
Kathy was known for her kind heart, smile, laugh, and playful nature. One set of family friends once named a state of being “Kathy Hoyer nice” to compare all others to, whom none have yet been able to reach. Her energy was seemingly endless. Everywhere she went she rarely stopped moving whether it was to help, work, clean, or dance. She had the most stunning blue eyes that were noted by many. Her brothers always used the name “Little” when calling for her even in adulthood, but despite her small stature she drew attention. She enjoyed exercising whether it was with her cardiac rehab patients or while working and working out at the MACC. Her passing has been a shock to all, but her fire burned bright as always up to her very end.
