Barbara Hocker, age 80, of Elmer, Oklahoma, passed away early Sunday morning, December 15, 2013, at Jackson County Memorial Hospital, in Altus.

Mrs. Hocker was born in Hitchcock, Oklahoma on December 14, 1933, to Elvest Edward and Pauline (Patterson) Osburn. After graduating from Hitchcock, she married Bill Hocker on November 21, 1953, in Watonga, Oklahoma. Bill preceded her in death on October 19, 1998 after forty-five wonderful years of marriage.

In 1971, the family moved to Jackson County where Barbara lived until her death. Barbara enjoyed cooking, the 4th of July and Christmas, but caring for her family and enjoying her grandchildren and their activities was what she enjoyed most of all in life.

Preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Bill; two sons, Tracey Hocker in 2013 and Nathan Hocker in 2013 and a sister, Patricia Hursh, she is survived by four children, Kim Hocker and wife Cynthia of Andover, Kansas, George Hocker and wife KiSun of Oklahoma City, Jesse Hocker and wife Kimmie of Arkansas City, Kansas and Tami Butler and husband Kirk of Elmer; a daughter-in-law, Beverly Hocker; one sister, Penny Lamle of Watonga, Oklahoma; sixteen grandchildren, twenty great grandchildren; a host of cousins, nieces and nephews and many, many friends.
