Lisa Marie Hoke, recently of Quaker Lake, Brackney, Pennsylvania, died on Saturday, July 15, 2017. Born on January 28, 1964, in Binghamton to Joseph Hoke and Helen (LaSure) Hoke, she was the eldest daughter of the couple's three children. The family moved to Connecticut in 1968. Lisa earned a Bachelors' Degree from the University of Hartford. Eventually, she moved back to the family's roots in Binghamton and her creative sales approach earned her top awards at Icon Copiers, where she worked for many years. After her successful sales career, she completed a nursing degree at SUNY Broome and started an in-home nursing business caring for patients in Pennsylvania. "We loved seeing her come in the door," was a typical comment from her patients. Survivors include: father, Joseph Hoke and partner, Leesa Lawson of Collinsville, CT; mother, Helen Hoke of Essex, CT; sister, Julie (David) Simard and their daughters Emma and Abigail of Farmington, CT; sister, Jennifer (Christopher) Messier of Pawtucket, RI; aunt and uncle, Christine and Thomas Hoke, Binghamton, NY; aunt, Joy Garris and Jim Pecha of Binghamton, NY; uncle John O' Connor; aunt and uncle Susan Horldt (Phillip) of Phoenix, AZ; aunt Dolores (Robert) of Beloit, WI; many cousins; and her beloved dog "Channel." With a laugh as big as her heart, Lisa was generous with everyone she knew. She felt blessed to have so many loyal and loving friends. Calling hours will be held Saturday, July 22, 2017 from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. at Wm. R. Chase Funeral Home at 737 Chenango Street in Binghamton, followed by a brief service where friends and family can share memories of Lisa.
