Allegra Joy Hoecker (née Stone), a longtime resident of Benicia, California lost her battle with liver disease at Sutter Solano Hospital in Vallejo, California at the age of 51 on January 9, 2020.
Allegra is survived by her two beloved children, Marlo and Kevin McCoy; her father and stepmother, Robert and Linda Stone; and her two siblings Renae and Jeremy Stone. She is predeceased by her husband Kenneth Hoecker; her mother, Brendia Stone; and all of her grandparents, William Wright, Earl and Wilene Barnard, and Ira and Ina Stone.
Allegra was born in Salem, Oregon on June 2, 1968 and graduated high school from North Salinas High School in Salinas, California in 1986. She then took time off to raise her two beautiful children, Marlo and Kevin McCoy, while juggling work as a server at many restaurants in the East Bay, including Pappa’s in Benicia. During this time, she met and married Kenneth Hoecker, who turned out to be the love of her life until his passing in 2012. After the kids were old enough, Allegra went back to school and earned her B.A. in Psychology from Cal State East Bay in Hayward, CA in 2011. She then went on to earn her M.S. in Forensic Psychology from the Chicago School of Psychology in 2017. Allegra was determined to complete her doctorate in psychology; however, her illness got the best of her. Allegra is best known for her willingness to help anyone and everyone, no questions asked. She was a beautiful person both inside and out, and she simply wanted peace, love, happiness and understanding for all people. She will be terribly missed by all whose lives were touched by her generosity and unconditional love.
A “Celebration of Life” Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday by invitation only.
