Wayne W. Sauey
Wayne W. Sauey, 61, died peacefully on January 19, 2011, at the University of Michigan Hospital, in Ann Arbor, surrounded by those he loved. Wayne's inner light and beautiful spirit were reflected in the way he lived his life. His family and friends knew his deep generosity of heart, his gentle and caring actions, and his dry wit. Wayne's great loves were his wife of 25 years, Maryjude Hoeffel, and the gardens, land, and woods of the home they shared in Swanville Township.

When not at his job at Precision Tool Technologies in Little Falls, Wayne could be found on the basketball court with his friends, paddling a kayak, biking the Soo Line and Wobegon Bike Trails, working in the garden, or snowshoeing in the woods. The sweetness of the maple syrup he made each spring to share with family and friends perfectly reflected his nature. Wayne touched the lives of people who knew him in an unforgettable way and he will be deeply missed.

He is survived by his wife, Maryjude Hoeffel; parents Edwin Sauey and Myrle Sauey of Baraboo, WI; brother and sister-in-law Dennis and Judy Sauey of Mt. Horeb, WI; sister and brother-in-law Jeanne and Dennis Drescher of Glendale, AZ; father and mother-in-law Thomas and Dorothy Hoeffel of Livonia, MI; sisters-in-law Margaret Hoeffel Koenig of Vashon, WA; Marsha Hoeffel Morche of Westland, MI; Monica Hoeffel Murphy of San Antonio, TX; brother-in-law Thomas J. Hoeffel of Oakland, CA; 13 loving nieces and nephews; 5 great nieces, and 4 great nephews.

A celebration of Wayne's life is planned for the spring. In Wayne's honor, a memorial fund for his favorite charities has been established and contributions can be sent to: Wayne Sauey Memorial Fund St. Francis Campus Credit Union, 808 S.E. 3rd St., Suite 100, Little Falls, MN 56345

My condolences and sympathy to you Maryjude, my prayers are with you during this time of grief. I will always cherish the wonderful memories of Wayne and "Maple Syruping", our families trip to Canada and New England, and our families motor home trip to Glacier Park.
