Mel was an exceptional teacher, woman, and friend. I worked with Mel at the elementary school in Howard Grove. She cared so much for her students and their book and life learning. Will never forger the "million pennies" drive she held with her third grade class one year. Rest in Peace dear woman. Sue Yocum

Mel and I worked together years ago as nursing assistants. She was the most caring and funniest person I have ever known. God bless you Mel. Pat Schreiter Murphy

Lee, Tony, Family, Friends,

My Thoughts are with all of you as we say goodbye to Mel. There are those few people, who have the gift of lighting up a room with laughter and good times every time we see them. Mel was one of those people. I feel blessed, not only to have known her but to have known her as family.

Hope you're doing ok.

Ms. Hofkens had the most beautiful smile! She made sure that everyone she had contact with felt important. She was what I consider an "angel" on Earth. Though I never had her as a teacher myself, I did have the privilege of Student Teaching at Howards Grove and was always inspired by her. I have been a teacher for 18 years and now I am principal, and I only hope to be able to touch lives in the manner that Ms. Hofkens did. She will be in my heart forever.

I am so grateful to have known 'Aunt Boo' - a kind, generous, and funny lady. I am especially glad that Lauren got to know her so well and that Shea got to snuggle with her. We will keep her in our thoughts and memories and prayers forever. We love you Aunt Mel. Thank you for your laughter and joy.

So many fond memories of this wonderful, fun-loving friend. Years spent together on 3rd floor Taylor Hall, UWO are some of life's most cherished memories - thanks to Mel. Can-man and I will never forget you, dear friend. You died on St. Paddy's Day………..'until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.'
Rest in Peace, Mel. cindy and tony

So many fond memories of this special lady. Life and times on 3rd floor at Taylor Hall, UWO were some of my favorite memories and many because of this fun-loving friend.
Can-Man and I will never forget you, Mel. Rest in your well-earned heavenly home. The world lost a beautiful woman on St. Paddy's Day………. 'and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.'

Although I only met Mel a few years ago and saw her little, she was such a kind hearted, thoughtful woman. She always made it a point to give my three boys something extra special on certain holidays (usually a card with a couple of dollars in). The last time we were together, she insisted on treating the boys to Pizza Ranch! Her loving, inviting ways, as well as her wonderful sense of humor will be greatly missed. Thanks Mel for the memories!

My sympathies to her close friends, family, and little sister, Theresa.

Lee and Tony, I'm so sorry to hear about Melanie. She is such a kind and wonderful person. I'm sure your Mom and Dad were waiting to welcome her with open arms. Love, Nancy Milhaupt Saindon
