Jacqueline Hochstedler, 61, went to be with the Lord in the early morning hours on June 17, 2017, surrounded by her family and friends after an extended illness.
She was born Nov. 2, 1955, in Kokomo, but resided most of her life in the Goshen area.
She is survived by her parents, Walter and Florence Hochstedler, Goshen; her brothers, LaMar (Linda) Hochstedler, Shipshewana, and Lance (Claire) Hochstedler, New Paris; her son, Brandon (Andrea) Kelsey, New Paris, with her three grandchildren, Aubrey, Baige and Cyeson; nephews, Trevor (Lori) Hochstedler and children Allison, Collin and Preston, and Troy (Shari) Hochstedler and children Alexis and Anthony; and niece, Lauren Hochstedler.
She worked as a radiologic technician throughout the area, specializing in orthopedics. She was an active member in the Goshen community, especially within her church, Goshen Christian Church. She reveled in making others laugh and did so especially by becoming certified as "Jazzy" the clown. She had a passion and love for music and she played piano and organ for her church and community events.
Friends may call Tuesday, June 20, from 3 to 7 p.m. and one hour prior to the 10 a.m. funeral service Wednesday, June 21, all at Goshen Christian Church. Pastor Kim Huffman will officiate. Burial will follow in Elkhart Prairie Cemetery.
