Tribute & Message From The Family

Tiffany Kristine Hoeck, age 45, passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 26, 2020, at Taylor House in Des Moines, Iowa after a courageous battle with cancer.

Tiffany was born on March 1, 1975 in Cherokee, Iowa to Vince Cox and Judee Cox. She graduated from North High School in Sioux City, Iowa and later graduated from Iowa State University on a full basketball scholarship.

It was at Iowa State where Tiffany met her husband, Joe, and the two were united in marriage on November 14, 1998 and welcomed two beautiful children Andrew Joseph (AJ) (age 14) and Ashley Kristine (age 9) who were Tiffany's entire world.

Tiffany is survived by her husband; two children; her father; her mother; and two brothers, Travis Cox and Wade Cox.

While Tiffany's fight against cancer was courageous and noteworthy it is not how Tiffany would want to be remembered. Tiffany was first an amazing wife. She single-handedly took a shy farm boy from NE Iowa and taught him how to love and live life to the fullest. Secondly, Tiff was an outstanding mother and cornerstone of our family. Tiffany has instilled many traits that live on in our children. AJ is fiercely competitive but also companionate, both traits Tiffany exhibited on a daily basis. Ashley's flair for the dramatic and big heart which welcomes anyone she comes in contact with are traits we also loved about Tiffany. Finally, Tiffany was an incredible friend. Whether it was celebrating a Cyclone victory at an ISU tailgate, showing off her killer dance moves while singing karaoke, or simply sitting down over dinner and drinks, Tiffany went out of her way to make everyone feel welcomed and ensured every event was memorable. We should feel blessed we had the opportunity to spend time with such a wonderful woman and her memory lives on in all of us.
