Marjorie (Marge) Hoffman
Marjorie (Marge) Hoffman (nee Schultz) passed away on May 4, 2016 at the age of 70 years. Born on March 11, 1946 in Provost, Alberta to John and Katherine Schultz, Marge was raised in Chauvin where her family owned and operated a pool hall. In the mid-60s the Schultz family moved to Ponoka where her future husband, Ken, and Marge first met while working together at the Alberta Hospital. Married on July 23, 1966, Ken and Marge moved out to the Hoffman family farm northwest of Ponoka in the Usona district. Marge will always be remembered for her witty sense of humor, love of her family and her desire to help anyone in need. She was a Women’s Institute (WI) member since 1967, and loved to take part in the meetings and the various activities the WI took part in. She also rolled and counted money for Unicef for many years, and once walked 15 miles from Crestomere to Ponoka in order to raise money for a history book. On the home front, Marge always loved to bake and decorate cakes which always impressed family and friends. She also always kept in touch with those close to her heart with regular phone calls; she always loved to hear how everyone was doing and catch up the little things. Marge will be deeply missed by her loving husband of 50 years, Ken; her son Greg, his wife Annitta and their two children Kassandra and Kayden; as well as Marge’s daughter Laurie and her two children Matthew and Rylee. Additionally, she is survived by her sister Barb (Darrell) Jenkins, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sister Joanne Schultz and her step-siblings Lawrence Schultz, Leo Schultz, and Francis Villemaire. A Funeral Service will be held at the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ponoka at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, 2016 with the Interment Service following at Forest Home Cemetery. Memorial donations are gratefully accepted to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta. To express condolences to Marge’s family, please visit www.womboldfuneralhomes.com.
