Toodles enjoyed traveling, movies, music, dancing, flower gardening, bowling, playing cards and above all cooking.  She was an excellent cook and especially loved to cook for large family events.  She was a very social person (Just ask, everyone knows Toodles) and loved nothing more than to spend time with her friends and family; to Toodles family was everything.  She was great supporter of local charities and donated her time for many years to Encore, Ladies Sodality and Elks Auxiliary  She was true believer in the celebration of Christmas and birthdays.  She always remembered to send birthday cards to all of her 12 nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, William Dobsch, and brother, Harold Hoemann Jr.
