“Aunt” Sarah Hofer, of Raymond, Alberta, passed away peacefully at her home. She was just 26 days short of reaching her 99th birthday, but her mind was as still as sharp as could be!
She was born in Yale, South Dakota to John and Barbara Hofer and they moved to southern Alberta when she was one-year-old
Sarah was a faithful member of the Stirling Mennonite Church. She will be lovingly remembered for her hard work and unselfish nature, and she was a friend to everyone she met.
In addition to her loving sister Anne Hofer, Sarah is survived by her two sister-in-laws; Carolyn (Jacob) Hofer of Stirling and Wilma (Paul) Hofer of Raymond, plus numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by six brothers and five sisters.
The family would like to express our warmest thanks to the doctors, nurses and home – care staff of the Raymond Hospital for their excellent care! A heartfelt thank you to Linda Ulrich for her loving care in the last six months. We also extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who gave of their time and talents to meet the daily needs that arose.
