Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our sister Louise Hoffman, surviving spouse of Rev. Elbert Hoffman, died on Tuesday, October 17, 2017. Elbert and Louise served originally in the Southern California-Arizona Annual Conference before transferring to California-Nevada in 1966. While in this conference, Elbert served several programmatic organizations, and he and Louise continued their ministry at Central UMC in Stockton before retiring in 1986.
She is survived by her daughter, Eileen Dabbs, her son in law Chris, and her grandchild Morgan, of Santa Rosa, CA. Rev. Elbert Hoffman died in 2010. Condolences may be sent to Eileen Dabbs at 4860 Ramondo Drive, Santa Rosa, CA 95401.
The memorial service will be private.
Memorial gifts may be made in Louise’s name to the Redwood Empire Food Bank, 3990 Brickway Blvd., Santa Rosa, CA 95403.
Let us continue to give God thanks for Louise’s life and witness and hold the Hoffman family close in prayer. In our living and in our dying, we belong to God! (Romans 14:8)
