Hope was born in Calgary January 16, 1920. She grew up in the Airdrie area and then settled east of Carstairs after marriage to John Gordon Hoskin in November 1939. They were blessed with five children; Patricia, Ralph (died in infancy), Albert, Dorothy, and John. They continued farming until 1968 when Gordon died at age 53. With family all grown, Hope returned to school and graduated from Mount Royal College on the President’s Honour Roll. Hope then resided in Calgary, predeceased by Lawrence Lamarche whom she married in 1975 and Art Koch whom she married in 1999. Her life was enriched with family and friends and a zest for life, and her involvement with the Calgary Life Enrichment Centre. Her book “Light of Hope” was published in December 2006.
