Mary Catherine Hoffman Motz

Mary passed away Saturday, August 29th, 2015, at the age of 83. Mary was born on April 7, 1932 to the late George and Eva (Gaffney) Hoffman. She is survived by her four children, Tom (Nancy), CeCe (Tony), MaryBeth and Robert. Mary was predeceased by her loving husband of almost 60 years, Daniel, youngest son, David, and son in law, Shawn McClafferty.

Grammy will be missed by her grandchildren, Bryan, Matthew, David, Ryle and Cloe, as well as her great grandson, Colin. Mary leaves behind her loving little sister Jeanne (Vince) as well as many nieces and nephews.

Mary enjoyed swimming with her 'Mermaids", bowling and playing cards. She and Dan raised their family in the Wilmington area before moving to West Chester, PA until 2012, when Mary moved to Shipley Manor (Wilmington) where she was "spoiled" every day by the wonderful, caring staff. She especially enjoyed the days that the piano man came to entertain, getting her hair and nails done, and the free ice creams (which she occasionally left in her purse).

A memorial Mass will be said for Mary on Friday, Sept. 4th at 10:30a.m. at St Joseph's on the Brandywine Church, 10 Old Church Rd., Greenville, DE 19807. In lieu of flowers donations may be sent to the Mary Campbell Center, 4641 Weldin Rd. Wilmington, DE 19803. To send messages of condolence, visit
