Freda Mae Hoey (Chudley)

Passed on April 21, 2021

With great sadness after a lengthy and courageous battle Mae passed away peacefully at her home in Gateway Manor in Teulon, Manitoba on April 21, 2021 with her family at her side.

Mae is survived by her children, Robert Hoey, Lorna Hoey, Neil Hoey and Cathy Lifeso, grandchildren Jay, Maegan, Jordan, Lindsay, Regeena, Caitlin, great grandchildren Sadie and Lincoln. She is survived by her sister Phyllis Harvey of Pipestone Manitoba as well numerous nieces and nephews.

Mae is predeceased by her husband Roger in 2012, her sisters Ruth McDonald, Betty Redlin and Brothers Gerald and William Chudley, her parents Freda and Cleavland Chudley of Brookdale Manitoba.

Mae was born in Neepawa Manitoba on April 23, 1933. She grew up on the family farm in the area of Brookdale, Manitoba. As a young women Mae’s plan was to be a teacher she attended Normal School in Winnipeg in the early 1950’s. Mae and Roger were married in Brookdale on July 25, 1953. In the years that followed Mae and Roger’s family grew. Mae supported Roger in the hardware business and the small family moved from Brookdale to Semans and Bengough in Saskatchewan. The hardware business brought the family to Teulon in 1962. Teulon became home for Mae and her family.

Mae was a loving mother to the four kids, was very active in the community and was a strong supporter and tireless worker for her other love, the United Church in Teulon. She was able to pursue her teaching career In Teulon. Mae and Roger were adventurous types and enjoyed travel, early on it was with the family on many wonderful and memorable summer vacation trips to many parts of Canada. Later on Roger and Mae made use of their growing free time to travel to many parts of the world, including the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia.

Mae (Mom) was a happy, kind and loving soul and was an inspiration to those she touched. She will always be dearly loved by her family and fondly remembered in the community. A private family service will be held at a later date. Interment will be at the Brookdale cemetery.

Mae’s photo is just as I remember her, with a warm smile on her face. We were colleagues for two years at Teulon Collegiate. It was my first teaching job and I valued Mae’s welcoming presence and advice from the moment that I met her. Condolences to the family. Rest in peace dear Mae.

Bob, Lorna, Neil, Cathy and all your families, no words can say how sad I am for the loss of your mum. Aunt Mae was kind, compassionate and very funny. She was my birthday buddy, I will always remember the chats we had on that day. My heart goes out to each and everyone of you. I will always be grateful for how she touched my life. ❤️ Karen Hoey

It was with real sadness that I read of Mae's death. We worked together for so many years at Teulon Collegiate. When I first started, Mae was always there to answer questions or to provide guidance. Her smile, her laugh, but with a no nonsense attitude made her a welcome colleague. Whenever we ran into each other, the smile and laugh were always there. I feel honoured to have known Mae and will miss her. My heartfelt condolences to her family.
