She lived in Eau Claire from 1969 until 2013 when she moved to Dilworth, to be closer to family. In 2015, she moved to Eventide.
Her greatest pleasure was spending time with her family and friends for holidays, garage parties or any other events. She took great pride in keeping her home, yard and flower gardens immaculate. The wonderful aromas coming from her kitchen were enjoyed by all who came to visit. She was an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Eau Claire for many years serving on various committees.
She is survived by a son, Steven (WallyAnn) Hoff of Wasilla, Alaska, daughter Nancy Hoff of Osakis, son Michael (Cheryl) Hoff of Moorhead, daughter Cindy (Laverne) Barnhardt of Melrose, WI, four grandchildren Chris (Milissa) Hoff, Brian (Lacy Havenar) Hoff, Jacob Barnhardt, and Jacalyn Barnhardt and four great grandchildren Coleman Hoff, Madilyn Hoff, Taryn Havenar, and Liam Barnhardt.
