|I have a Hoya that is decades old. Just this winter it started looking sad. Leaves turning gray and then crinkly. Some of the leaves would also grow deformed odd shapes. Hoping it can be saved. Help is appreciated as it was a gift from my late mother in law.

I'm sad to say, it doesn't look like your Hoya is still viable. The leaves and vines look extremely desiccated and the roots are likely dead.
Your description of the leaves turning gray and deformed makes me think there was a possible thrip insect infestation at some point but that's just my thoughts and hopefully others will be along with advice soon.

|Take a cutting of the healthiest area and re root it. That's all I got. Hope it works.|
