Hoffner, Betty Lou (Williams)  
Betty Lou Williams Hoffner, 82, passed a way peacefully on March 12, 2015 in Arlington, Texas. Services will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, March 21, at First Baptist Church of Sulphur, officiated by Dr. Andy Buckley. Visitation will be held 5 p.m.–8 p.m., Friday, March 20, at Hixson-Sulphur Memorial Funeral Home and Saturday, 9 a.m.–11 a.m., in the church. Born in the early 1930s, the lessons learned from the recovery of the Great Depression and deep commitment to the virtues of the church allowed Betty to embrace the virtue of public servitude. Her experiences in Edgerly and Sulphur solidified her foundation to guide, teach, nurture, and empower our family as we grew. After meeting her husband, Donald C. Hoffner, near Chennault Airfield in the early 1950s, she continued to support and encourage a new family in southern California in marriage. She witnessed an exponential technological explosion in aviation and aeronautics as Don spent his time employed with JPL and Aerojet General, later with Lockheed Aircraft, and finally with Bell Helicopter in Hurst Texas. Our family returned to Sulphur in 1966 where Don completed his career with Cities Service Oil Company. In each location, Betty enjoyed learning new crafts. These crafts included sewing, leather work, cake decorating, and cooking. These acquired skills allowed her to share with the family and the local community. Important to her was involvement with her church from normal Sunday services, Vacation Bible School to touring with the Senior Choir from the Church "Agin' Cajuns." Her joy came from serving her family and community. Her support came from investing in the lives of her extended family - the Porties, Williams, Guillorys, and the Griffins. Survivors include three sons, Steven and his wife Amy of Arlington, Texas, Paul and his wife Amy of Rockville, Maryland, and Mark of Yreka California; grandchildren Allison and her husband Seth Goodling of Haltom City, Texas, Jonathan, Kristen, and Megan of Arlington, Texas, Alisha Sternenberger of Boston, Mass., Andrea Sternenberger of Fort Collins, Colo., and Matthew Sternenberger of Washington D.C.; two great grandchildren, Adelaide and Levi Goodling of Haltom City, Texas. Memorials may be made to:  First Baptist Church of Sulphur, 401 S. Huntington Street, Sulphur, LA 70663 or the Dementia Research Foundation.
