Marjorie Brite Hohon

1919-2012

Marjorie Brite Hohon, 92, of Medina, stepped into the arms of her heavenly Father on Sunday, Jan. 8, surrounded by her family.

She was born in Calvin to Samuel and Maude Palmer Brite on March 5, 1919.

Margie married Henry Pete Hohon on June 7, 1943, in San Antonio.

A lifelong Catholic, she attended school at St. Leo's Catholic School and Blessed Sacrament Academy, graduating from Incarnate Word College with a degree in education.

Margie and the sisters made up the team of defending champions at Blessed Sacrament Academy that won the 1935 title of the Academic Basketball League.

Margie worked actively in many organizations in her church parish, and her faith was the center of her whole life. Her unceasing devotion to prayer brought many miracles and blessings to her friends and family.

Throughout her life, Margie also actively participated in sports, not only playing them, but also cheering her children and grandchildren on to victory. Margie's family was also the center of her life and her untiring love and support of her family has profoundly affected her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Margie taught 30 years in public schools, retiring from Bishop ISD in 1982. Many of her students continued to correspond and visit her late into her life.

She is survived by her six children and their spouses, Pete and Barbara Hohon of D'Hanis, George and Pat Hohon of Pipe Creek, Edna and Ernie Bubenik of Pipe Creek, Sharon Hohon of San Antonio, Tim and Amy Hohon of Colorado and Mary and Jim Miller of Houston. She is also survived by 16 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

Margie was predeceased by Henry, her husband of 67 years, and her sisters Mary Lois Brite Gray and Maude Ellen Brite Boggess.

A Rosary was held Tuesday, Jan. 10, at Grimes Funeral Chapels in Bandera.

Funeral services took place Wednesday, Jan. 11, at St. Leo's Catholic Church in San Antonio, with Reverend James Dudley presiding and Reverend Frank Macias co-celebrating.

Burial followed at St. Luke Cemetery in Loire.

The family extends thanks to caregivers Veronica Quintana and Blanca Cobos and the staff at Bandera Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center for the kindness and love they extended to Margie and her family.

Also, a special thank you goes out to Shirley Higdon and her staff of Ave Maria Hospice for their tender care of our mother in her last days.
