Ann D. Hoxie


     Ann D. Hoxie, 87, of Lancaster, died Thursday, April 18, 2024 at Lancaster General Hospital.  Born in Schultzville, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of the late Glenn D. and Rena Champlin Dickinson. She was married thirty-six years to the late Cecil D. Hoxie.

     Since 2000 when Mrs. Hoxie sold the family business, Hoxie Insurance Agency Inc., she traveled over much of the United States.  This insurance agency was started in 1972 by her husband, Cecil D. Hoxie.  She, with the assistance of her daughter, Erin and son, Scott, took over the management of the agency when her husband died in 1992.  The agency’s primary carrier was Erie Insurance Group.

     Prior to managing the insurance agency, she was a senior high school teacher and guidance counselor at Ephrata Senior High School.  She was an active member of NEA, PSEA, and in the mid-eighties was elected President of the Ephrata Area Education Association.  She was persistent in her pursuit of equitable teacher’s salaries and benefits.

     She began her education at Mansfield State Teachers College, majoring in Music Education.  A Dean’s List student, she was elected treasurer of her class.  In high school she qualified many times for District and State Choruses in addition to winning numerous awards for public speaking.  She enjoyed singing at Leola United Methodist Church under the direction of Midge Lilley.

     When her husband changed employment requiring the family to move to the Lancaster area, Mrs. Hoxie enrolled at Millersville State Teachers, changing her major to Economics with a minor in Comprehensive Social Studies.  She graduated Cum Laude.  She finished her Master’s Degree in Comprehensive Social Studies with a Certification in Counseling Education two and a half years later at Millersville.  She was a licensed career counselor and a member of the National Association of Career Counselors.  From the University of Scranton, she acquired a Supervisory Certificate.  In 1992, she was selected for a fellowship to Ohio State to study Middle Eastern Studies.

     Surviving are her son, Scott T. Hoxie, of Winchester, VA and her daughter, Erin Hoxie, of Leola.  Also surviving are: a brother, David K. Dickinson, of Schultzville; a nephew, Glenn D. Dickinson, III, of Ephrata. She was preceded in death by brothers, Norman L. Dickinson, Charles R. Dickinson and Glenn D. Dickinson, Jr.

     The memorial service will be on Friday, May 31, 2024 at 8:00 pm at Furman Home for Funerals, 59 W. Main Street, Leola, PA. The family will greet friends and relatives from 7-8:00 pm. Interment will be in Greenwood Cemetery, Schultzville, PA on Sunday, June 2, 2024 at noon.
