Jude Hockman, 68, of Tonasket, Wash. died in the early morning of December 14th, 2014 losing an unexpected battle with cancer.
She passed away in the home of granddaughter, Alexandra Hockman and she also leaves behind a daughter, Jean Hockman (aunt to Alexandra), a sister Susan Belger and many friends.
Jude came to Tonasket in 1999 with Alexandra to begin a new life. She participated in Market Fair, a group of businesses that resided in what is now Christina’s Furniture Shop. She went to school in Wenatchee to become a barber and owned a storefront on Tonasket Main Street as The Lady Barber. Even after retiring the business she was active in the community – She would attend the local spring Farmer’s Market selling doggie treats and her hand-made knitted goods.
Jude was a wonderful person who was full of adventure, forgiveness, kindness and spirit. She will be missed dearly.
A memorial service will be held at the Cultural Community Center of Tonasket on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. It will be a potluck and all friends of Jude are welcome.
Bergh Funeral Service and Crematory in care of arrangements.
