Life Story / Obituary
Tiffana (Brown) Hoebeke (Ms. Tiff) lost her battle with depression on Thursday, January 28, 2021. There are simply no words to describe the joy she brought to hundreds of people in her roles as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, teacher, farm girl, and party-planner extraordinaire! Tiff was a giver. She lived with intention, creating delightful moments and memories for others, not only on special occasions, but in the everyday. Tiffana made everything extra-special. She knew that love was in the details, and detailed she was! She had a knack for finding the most perfect gifts to give, then wrapped them in vibrant color and attached big bows or balloons! She threw the BEST parties EVER, with over-the-top decorations, surprises around every corner, and silly games for young and old alike. When Tiff stood on a chair to give a crowd direction, you knew something wonderful was about to happen. No one went hungry or thirsty in her presence because she made sure a variety of snacks and drinks were only an arms-length away from guests at any time. Standing in her Farm Camp barnyard, cuddling with new-born chicks and bunnies, or admiring lush green garden rows waiting to be watered by precious little hands, you knew you were in a magical space…a space that was created from Tiffana’s heart…a space that she offered up with love for so many people to enjoy. She spared no expense in her efforts to make everyone feel special, and her sweet and gentle spirit will stay with us forever. Tiff loved playing in the waves of Lake Michigan, daily lunch dates with her husband, Tom, and talking and laughing with her daughters, Isabelle and Savanna. Her presence in our lives was a gift. We want to rejoice with gratitude for all the days she walked alongside us. Friends, family, and her beloved Farm Camp families from over the years are invited to a Celebration of Life event on Friday, February 5th between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and again on Saturday, February 6th from 2-5 PM at “The Party Barn” located at 6208 Baumhoff in Comstock Park. Dress is “Carhartt casual.” Snacks and drinks will be served. Please BYOPB – Bring Your Own Picture Board to add to our GIANT display honoring Tiffana’s beautiful soul! We want YOUR memories, stories, coloring pages, and photographs of you having fun on Tiff’s farm or at one of her parties. Tell the tale of how Tiffana’s life touched yours, or a favorite time you spent together. Please be sure your display is one-sided as it will become part of a permanent display in the Farm Day Camp room for years to come. If you cannot attend the party, you may still share your memories anytime. Your picture board contribution, cards, and gifts can be brought to the event on Friday, or dropped off or sent to The Hoebeke Family at 17647 40th Avenue, Conklin, MI 49403 or the Hoebeke Party Barn at 6208 Baumhoff, Comstock Park, MI 49321. Thank you for keeping Tiffana’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
