Happy Birthday to Hank and Mary!

Posted by Lara Michels on Thursday August 27 2009

Hank and Mary Hoexter celebrate their 60th birthday and their 35th wedding anniversary (wjhc1975-013-ar1-001)

Magnes volunteers Hank and Mary Hoexter celebrated their 87th birthdays this week.  They were born on the same day of the same year–August 24, 1922!  What are the odds of that?  They have been married now for 62 years.

And to top it all off, the Hoexters have been volunteering up in the Western Jewish History Center for more than three decades.  Mary started her volunteer work at the Magnes in 1973 and Hank followed shortly thereafter (upon his retirement). They still come every Wednesday.

The Magnes has depended upon the loving and careful work of its volunteers since its inception.  Hank and Mary are treasures and we wish them many more years together.

Happy Birthday!
