Reflections for Detention Officer Bobbie Sue Hoenie

It is the actions of people such as you that year after year continues to raise the standards of professionalism and fidelity to service by which the rest of us are measured. Your sense of duty is a hard act to follow but one in which the rest of us are further inspired to achieve. "Three months of service". I'm sorry for the life you lost. I'm sorry for the loss to our profession of a career cut tragically too short. But I celebrate the life you lived and the service you rendered. I hope you know that 23 years later both your life and service are still remembered and appreciated. Thanks.

When you talk about service before self, this is exactly what is meant. You, ma'am are a true hero and your service and sacrifice will never be forgotten. Rest in peace always.

Officer Hoenie,
On today, the 22nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Dawson County. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Officer Hoenie, you left one job, was headed for another job and whereas you could have simply made notification, you stopped to check on the occupants of the vehicle in question. If that isn't the definition of a hero, NOTHING is. Though it's been almost 22 years, you have been honored here and rightly so.

God Bless you, Sister and may your eternal Rest be EVER peaceful.
