Norfolk - Victoria Jo Hoffman, formerly of Norfolk, Virginia, died May 30, 2014, in her home in Roswell Georgia, surrounded by family and friends. A native of Norfolk, she was the daughter of the late Alan Lewis and Renee Beverly Ornoff Hoffman. She is survived by her sister, Melissa H. Bernstein, of California, and Allison H. Wilcox and her husband Jason, of Atlanta, Georgia; nieces and nephews, Josh Ahlzadeh, Brittany Bell, Aaron Ahlzadeh, Alexis Ahlzadeh and Jordan Wilcox; and her beloved dogs, Apache and Cochise.
After graduating from Emory University School of Law in 1981, Victoria made her home in Atlanta, Georgia. She practiced in the areas of construction and contract litigation and later became a certified financial planner. Victoria's passion, however, was Standard Poodles, having owned many over the course of her life. She was a member of the Poodle Club of America and the Four Paws Dog Agility Club, volunteering her time at many state agility trials. Victoria could be found most Wednesdays with her beloved dogs, Apache and Cochise, visiting with patients at the Emory Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta, as "her boys" were certified therapy dogs and brought much comfort, peace and joy to the folks undergoing treatment. Victoria was truly loved and admired in the dog agility community.
