Ann Marie was born July 3, 1963 to Hilary and Bonnie (Bargstadt) Hoesing in Yankton, SD. Ann went to grade school at Holy Trinity and graduated from Hartington Cedar Catholic H.S. in 1981. Ann was deeply devoted to her faith and passed that devotion on to her children. Ann later went on to become a state certified Dietary Manager. She married Chris Rooney of Waterbury, Nebraska on March 27, 1994. Of that union Ann had three beautiful girls, who she absolutely adored. Ann enjoyed cooking and gardening, but her greatest joy was her children. Ann worked as a Dietary Manager at the Laurel Nursing Home for several years where she touched many lives. She later became head cook at the Coleridge School where she took pride in everything she did in every detail of trying to make those children's days a little better.
Ann is survived by her three daughters, Shandra, Kari, and Grace Rooney of Waterbury, NE; mother Bonnie Hoesing of Coleridge, six sisters and three brothers and spouses - Patricia Allison of Omaha, Joan and Jim Andrew of Tekamah, Theresa and Pat Hoarty of Wessington Springs, SD, Carlene and Doug Oines of Sioux Falls, SD, Bernice and Don Maxwell of Coleridge, Dan and Jill Hoesing of Yankton, SD, Alan and Jean Hoesing of Hartington, Jeff and Mary Hoesing of Randolph, and Rose and Terry Brewer of Homer; many nieces and nephews.

We will miss you dearly, Annie. You did so much more for us than fill our tummies with food made from your heart- You made each of us feel special in a different way! You knew exactly what we needed...... whether it be a hug, a cheer for our big game, a big smile, or an extra scoop of our favorite food. We love you- be sure to watch over us all!!

Not sure what to say, as so many thoughts come to mind. Annie was one of a kind! So thankful that she became my friend. I learned a lot from her and will miss her deeply. She loved her family so and loved feeding those children at school and childcare! I have tears of happiness for knowing you! See you in heaven!
When the Lord calls our loved ones home, He leaves a gift of memories in exchange. Treasure the memories. Prayers are with you, Bonnie and your family.

Bonnie and Family,
May God bless Ann at this time. Our deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. I cherish the memories of childhood fun with Ann -- riding bikes on the gravel roads near your farm and finding brand new kittens high in the hay loft. Our prayers are with you.
Corene McCarthy Baum & Family
So sorry to hear about Ann. I am sure she was one of my first childhood friends. We would beg our parents to have sleepovers back and forth, Peggy and I with Ann and Rose. Bonnie took all four of us girls to a play at Wayne State college. Probably the first play I ever went to, lots of fond memories. I remember playing Ouija Board and having make-believe Seances, Ann would get so scared, but loved it, HA! I also remember slipping out her bedroom window, and the Japanese doll on your piano. The older girls were our babysitters, and the big boys would saddle the horses for us, if we begged! Also the 4th of July parties, and riding the bus. Our Grandmas were neighbors in town, so we saw each other there too. In HS Ann and I road together to take out ACT test, in Wayne. We worried the whole way. I hope you family finds comfort and faith.
Sincerely, Pam (Tideman) Shelton
