HANNAH HOFFART July 31, 1953 ~ October 4, 2023 It is with deep sadness that the family of Hannah Hoffart, beloved wife of William ‘Bill’ Hoffart, announces her passing at St. Joseph’s Home – Carmel Hospice in Medicine Hat on Wednesday, October 4, 2023, at the age of 70 years after bravely battling a sudden and aggressive cancer. Along with Bill, left to cherish Hannah’s memory is her son, Curtis and daughter, Amanda who she considered her world, as well as her siblings, David Stickel, Pauline Ekman, Martin Stickel and Adolph Stickel; sisters-in-law, Cathy (Gerald) Schneider and Pamela Hoffart. She was predeceased by her parents, John and Emilie Stickel; sister in infancy, Martha; brothers-in-law, Clifford Ekman and Anthony Hoffart as well as her mother and father-in-law, Katherine and Anton Hoffart. Hannah was born in Medicine Hat but grew up on a farm at Seven Persons. She had a love for numbers and math, leading her to work as a bookkeeper for Alpha Dairy. On October 23, 1976, she married Bill and started a family becoming a stay-at-home Mom who cared deeply for her children. Hannah enjoyed gardening and flowers; spending hours every day looking after the yard during spring, summer, and fall months, as well as always doing all the housework, cooking, and cleaning. To her a garden was never a garden if there wasn’t dill growing in amongst the vegetables and flowers. During the winter months she would shovel the snow, and loved reading, sewing, cross stitching, crafting, baking and stamp collecting. She was quiet but full of love, kindness and understanding, always looking after her family. Hannah loved spending time with her children and hearing how their day went, giving her opinion and advice, and then always letting them know how her day went. She was the best wife and mother in the world who would look after everything for her husband. A Celebration of Hannah’s Life will be held at Cook Southland Funeral Chapel, 901 – 13 Street S.W., Medicine Hat on Friday, October 13, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. with Reverend David Pollard officiating.
