 Agnes T. “Aggie” Hochstein was born December 13, 1939, along with her two triplet sisters: Ann and Alice, on the family farm near Hartington, Nebraska, to John and Wilhelmina (Wieseler) Feilmeier.  Aggie’s mother died when she was almost 2 years old. A few years later her father married Adeline Sudbeck who was a “special angel” to the family.  Aggie attended school in Hartington and graduated from Holy Trinity High School.  She married Daryl Hochstein on June 16, 1959, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Hartington.  Aggie operated an in-home daycare for about five years, until she decided to work outside the home.  She then started working for Vishay Dale Electronics until she retired in 2003 after 25 years.

 Aggie knitted and donated over 200 blankets for cancer patients at the Yankton Medical Clinic.  It was a passion for her after her husband, Daryl, passed away.  Aggie felt this was her way of giving back, since Daryl loved the one he received while going through his treatment. Aggie taught knitting for a few years in the St. Helena 4-H Club, where one of her students won top honors making a baby sweater.   

 She made lots of homemade goodies including, bread, buns, pies and jellies.  She also loved working in her huge garden as her kids were growing up.   She was a very faithful woman and member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, where she served as the President and Vice President of the Altar Society for a few years.  She was a huge high school sports fan and loved rooting for the Wynot Blue Devils.  She was an avid Nebraska Cornhusker sports fan and enjoyed watching the Huskers with her family.

 Aggie had a heart of gold and was filled with love and joy.  She had a tireless energy and was always up for anything at any time.  Above everything else, Aggie loved her big family.   She always wanted everyone to be together and loved playing cards and games with them.  She was a loving mother and devoted wife and will be greatly missed.

 Survivors include her four children: Bob and Stephanie Hochstein of Wichita, Kansas; Denise Morrow and Don Hagge of Yankton, South Dakota; Sheri and Doug Moser of Crofton, Nebraska; and Tom and Lacy Hochstein of Chatham, Illinois; nine grandchildren: Dustin (Meghan) Hochstein, Dawn Hochstein, Adam (Sarah) Wiebold, Ashley (Derrick) Leise, Alex (Carrie) Wiebold, Ethan Hochstein, Nicole (Mitchell) Hughes, Madison Hochstein and Riley Hochstein; five step grandchildren: Cody (Danielle) Raymond, Tyler (Becky) Raymond, Alexis (Lane) Wilkes, Carson Barnett and Kelly Morrow; 17 great grandchildren; three brothers: Jerome, Harold (MaryGay), Chuck (Bev) Feilmeier; six sisters: Wilhelmina Boecker, Ann (Jay) Walz, Alice Klug, Charlene (Dennis) Meyer, Ruthie Heine, and Linda (Dale) Trenhaile; and many many nieces and nephews.

 She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Daryl; her parents; son-in-law, Tim Morrow; and siblings: Mary Jansen, Marcella Promes, John, Leona (Potts) Peterson, Leonard and George.
