Norma Jean Hofmann passed away peacefully on September 11, 2020 at Astoria Assisted Living. She was born December 30, 1948, in San Jose, CA. to the late Carl and Dorothy Hofmann. She leaves behind her brothers Steve (Navarre, FL.) and Bob (Oakdale), a sister Julie (Waterford) along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and their families.
Norma lived most of her life in Oakdale. In high school she was involved in cheerleading.
After graduation in 1969, she went to Modesto Junior College and also attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, she graduated in 1971, with a degree in interior design. Norma moved to San Francisco, she worked for Rucker Fuller and later for the Bechtel Corp. In 1978 she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, unfortunately she was unable to continue her career.
In 1982 Norma moved back to Oakdale to be closer to family and friends. She became involved in the local MS Society Chapter. Until earlier this year, she had been able to live independently in her own house, but eventually Norma had to move to Astoria Assisted Living.
What Norma lacked in body size, she made up in personality, determination and stubbornness. She will be missed by all, but we find comfort in knowing she has been restored to full health and now resides in the presence of our loving Heavenly Father.
“Never, never, never give up.”
A viewing will be held October 30 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Oakdale Memorial Chapel.
