1919 – 2016
It is with sadness that the family announce the peaceful passing of Grandma Barbara Hofer from the Elk Water Colony, on Friday, November 11, 2016, at the age of 97 years. Barbara was a loving mother, grandma, great-grandma and friend. She will be forever remembered in the hearts of her children, John (Annie), Barbara (Mike) of Loring, MT, Mike (Mary), Martha (Leonard) of Hillridge, Josh (Sarah) of Springcreek, George (Esther) of Springcreek, Reuben (Judy), Martin (Barbara), Katie (Pete) of Wolf Creek, Sam (Susan), Paul (Susie) and Lydia (Jake) of Holt. Grandma Barbara was blessed with 42 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren whom she loved dearly. She was predeceased by her husband, John; eldest son, John; daughter-in-law, Mary; son-in-law, Pete and all of her brothers and sisters. We will remember Grandma sitting in her chair thinking and thinking of ways to be a helping hand to everyone. For years, she loved knitting and her pride and joy was calling her relatives and friends for a friendly visit. To all of us, she was the most inspiring soul, her teachings and spiritual wisdom will always be close to our hearts. Barbara’s dear daughters were committed in giving their mother the best care possible and she looked forward to seeing each and everyone one of them when their time came to care for her. Barbara’s visits from her son’s every morning for a cup of coffee lifted her spirits which gave her great joy. The time she looked forward to the most was Sunday afternoon fellowship at her house, where the Hope of Christ was discussed. Barbara is now safely in the arms of Jesus. The Funeral Service celebrating Barbara’s life will be held at the Elk Water Colony, 2119 Hwy 515, Elk Water, Alberta on Monday, November 14, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. (Condolences may be expressed by visiting our website at www.cooksouthland.com) Honoured to serve the family is
