Diana L. (Fothergill) Hoffman

October 6, 1955 — January 30, 2021

Diana L. Hoffman (nee Fothergill), age 65, passed away on Saturday, January 30, 2021.

Diana is survived by her loving husband, Raymond Hoffman; children, Michael (Jennifer) Hoffman, Heather (Bill) Murphy and Jeremy (Cheryl) Hoffman; mother, Beatrice (the late Leroy) Fothergill; grandchildren, Chloe and Riley Hoffman, Amanda Murphy, Brianna, Alyssa and Emma Hoffman; niece and nephew, Paul Jr. Lemonta and Stephanie (Jeff) Banach; great-nieces, Addison and Kamryn Banach; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

Diana retired from the AT&T Phone Company after 31 years of service. She was a member of the St. Joseph Seniors, past member of the Slovenian Union of America, the Local IBEW Union #21, and Vietnam Veterans Wives and Surviving Spouses of Agent Orange. Some of her greatest joys were spending time at the Lake LaDonna Camp Ground, where she and her husband camped and spent their summers outdoors, always having open arms to the family, especially their grandchildren.

Her grandchildren were the light of her life and she enjoyed spending every moment possible with them. Diana loved watching them grow and always being at their events and performances. She will be truly missed.
