Minnie Mae Hoffman
The Guest Book is expired.
June 10, 1920 - June 16, 2014
Born the youngest daughter of 13 children, Mae was the last surviving child of Augustus and Ada (Robinson) Morris.
At the age of 18 she met, and soon wed, Ray Hoffman. With the exception of his service in Europe during World War II and his "Honor Flight" visit to Washington, DC, they were virtually inseparable. Regardless of the circumstance, in sickness and in health, Ray was always there for Mae, and Mae for him. Mae proudly served as Ray's "mouthpiece", for as shy and quiet as he was she was equally outgoing and chatty. It was once said Mae made friends in the checkout line at the local grocery store.
Mae was born and raised in Charleston, WV. She and Ray remained there until their children were raised and gone at which time they retired to Tennessee, first to McEwen and then Nashville. For the last seven years Grand Junction has been home.
Mae is survived by Ray, her husband of 75 years; children, Jim Hoffman of Grand Junction and Bette Powell-Wood of The Villages, FL; five grandchildren, Tim Allen, Heather (Vern) Moore, Lanessa (Santana)Griego, Leani Hoffman and Jeffrey Hoffman, and six great-grandchildren, Emily Moore, Geleio, Tiana and Tayven Griego, and Brandon and Kimberly Generazio.
As she desired, cremation and internment have occurred. A public celebration of her life shall be 4:00 p.m., July 24, 2014, at Callahan-Edfast. A reception shall immediately follow at her residence.
In lieu of flowers please contribute in her name to your favorite church or charity.
