Dorothy E. Hoffmann

Friday, January 11, 2008

Dorothy Elizabeth (Davis) Hoffmann passed on Friday Jan. 4, 2008, at Spencer Municipal Hospital at Spencer.

A celebration of life for Dorothy E. Hoffman, 90, will take place on what would have been her 91st birthday, Feb. 15, 2008, at the Marathon Public Library. Friends are encouraged to attend.

Dorothy was born Feb. 15, 1917, in Philadelphia, Penn., the only child of Ira Kline and Eva Marion (Mathieu) Davis. Her mother died while she was an infant. Dorothy was taken in by her maternal grandparents and later adopted by her aunt and uncle, Jan (Davis) and J. William Claxton.

Dorothy married Mathew Hoffmann in 1941 and they had two children: Elizabeth Marie Hoffmann and Patricia Eleonore (Hoffmann) Munoz. Patricia bore Dorothy's only grandchild, Paul.

She was preceded in death by her parents; adoptive parents; and her beloved daughter, Beth.
