Peggy Jean Hoenshel Green

Jean Hoenshel Green, 83, of Red Oak, formerly of Centerville, passed away Saturday, June 1, 2013 at her daughter’s home in Creston.

Peggy Jean Hoenshel Green was born Nov. 27, 1929 in rural Emerson, the daughter of William and Jessie (Smith) Douglas. She graduated from the Emerson High School in 1946 and attended Tarkio College where she received her teaching certificate. She started teaching in a one-room schoolhouse near Wales, Iowa.

Peggy Jean was united in marriage to Jack Hoenshel on May 17, 1951 and to this union four children were born, Deborah, Peggy, Scott and Wendy. Peggy Jean lived in Denmark and Pocahontas before moving to Centerville where she lived for many years.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
