Obituary of Joyce Doris Hoffman

Joyce Doris Hoffman age 89 entered fully into the presence of her Lord and Savior on Monday, December 30, 2019. Joyce was born on November 21, 1930 to Harry Turner and Viola May (Gibble) Gresh. She was an only child and loving daughter. Growing up Joyce learned the value of hard work helping her parents with the greenhouse business. Before starting a family Joyce worked as a hairdresser for several years. On September 28, 1956, Joyce married the love of her life, Harold K. Hoffman at Niantic Lutheran Church. Joyce and Harold lived 62 wonderful years in the home built by her father. Many happy memories were made at their home where they raised their two children, Claudine and Amber. Joyce was a faithful servant of the Lord who loved her church, Colebrookdale Chapel and loved to read her Bible. She was a wonderful homemaker who loved to cook, bake and sew. She was deeply devoted to her family and loved each unconditionally. She had a giving spirit and always put the needs of others above herself. She enjoyed many trips to Disney World with her family. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend who will be dearly missed. Before passing, Joyce said she loved her life and if she had to live over she would not have changed one thing. She is survived by her husband, Harold; her children, Claudine (Hoffman) Smith, wife of Randy, Battle Creek, MI, and Amber (Hoffman) Strunk, wife of Daniel, Gilbertsville, PA; her loving grandchildren, Daniel Strunk, Amanda Strunk, Heather McGrath (Arthur), Andrew Smith, and Arden Smith (Kristi); and her great-grandchildren, Braelyn, Everly, and Harlow Smith, and Huxton McGrath. She is preceded in death by her father, Harry Gresh; and her mother, Viola (Gibble) Gresh.
