Obituary for Dorothy C. Hoffman

Dorothy C. Hoffman of Bloomfield Hills died peacefully August 26, 2016, at William Beaumont Hospital in Troy. She was 93 years old. Dorothy was born June 23, 1923, in Detroit, to Dorothea (nee Nuhn) and Albert Goetz.

Dorothy attended the University of Michigan and later married Joseph Hoffman, a returning pilot from WWII. Together they raised 8 children and enjoyed watching their family grow over the years.

Dorothy, or Doff as she was often called, enjoyed beautiful things and that beauty spilled over into her surroundings. She enjoyed nature, especially trees, but most of all, she loved children and treated all as if they were part of the family.

A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, Dorothy was deeply loved and will be sorely missed.

Dorothy is survived by her children, Joseph (the late Nancy) Hoffman, Christopher Hoffman, Teri (Bill) Clements, Dorothea Hoffman, Pamela (Mitch) McNeil, Martha (Pat) Kelley, Kathy (Peter) Connolly, and Jeffrey (Lisa) Hoffman. She is also survived by 14 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and her brother, Albert Goetz. Dorothy is preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Hoffman and her sister, Cottie Carroll.

Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 1368 N. Crooks Road (between 14-15 Mile Rds.), Monday, August 29th, 4-8pm. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Holy Name Catholic Church, 630 Harmon, Birmingham, Tuesday, August 30th at 1pm. Friends may visit at church beginning at 12:30pm.
