Mary Jo was born January 12, 1943 in Albany to Joseph and Marie (Thelen) Glatzmaier. She began working with her mother at the Albany Hotel Restaurant when she was 11 years old. When she was young, her nickname was “Booper” to her friends and family. She had a sense of humor and loved to hear jokes and she would respond with huge roars of laughter. She purchased the restaurant in 1979 when her mother retired. She was dedicated to her work and always wanted to be the best cook possible. She devised new recipes to fit the needs of her customers. She married Vernon “Sonny” Hoeschen on September 4, 1989 in Seven Dolors Catholic Church in Albany. Sonny died on March 14, 1999. Mary Jo loved animals and was especially fond of the family dogs; Gretel and currently Samantha. She would feed the dogs chicken, hamburgers and steaks as if they were her regular customers. These dogs will miss her greatly. Mary Jo was a member of the Seven Dolors Catholic Church.
