Anne Hoffman Obituary

Born on January 31, 1926, in St. Petersburg, Florida, Anne Kelly Hoffman, daughter of Margaret and Ray Kelly, passed away at the age of 98 on February 8, 2024.

Anne graduated from Massillon High School, Massillon, Ohio and graduated from Ohio University in 1947 with a degree in Secretarial Studies.  She worked in Pittsburgh as an executive secretary at Koppers prior to her July 23, 1949 marriage to Paul W. Hoffman, the love of her life.  Their early marriage years began in Massillon, Ohio where four of their five children were born.  In 1956, they moved to Pittsburgh, had their fifth child and lived in Mt. Lebanon for 63 years.  Anne became the Executive Secretary for her husband Paul and spent every weekday morning taking dictation at home before going into the Hoffman Engineering Company office!

Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church was the center of Anne and Paul’s social life and where both were actively involved.   She will be remembered for her seamstress skills, her smile, thoughtfulness of others and willingness to help in times of need.  She was the source of boundless love for her family!

She leaves to cherish her memory, daughters, Amy (Zachary) Camardese of Poland, Ohio; Fay (Bob) Kane of Upper St. Clair; Barb (Phil) Ehrman of Pittsburgh; Ellen Worthy (the late Dwight Worthy) of Mt. Lebanon; and son, Bill (Kari) Hoffman of Houston, Texas.  There are 15 grandchildren:  Meg Aziminia, Stephanie Dougherty, Will Kane, Kelly Hargrave, Tim Kane, Tracy Ehrman Gross, Ben Ehrman, Alex Ehrman, Dylan Hoffman, Amanda Hoffman Byers, Tyler Hoffman, Steve Worthy, Mark Worthy, Jon Worthy, and Michael Worthy.   Anne had 28 great-grandchildren.  Anne is also survived by her sister Jean Bair(Smyrna, TN) and sister-in-law, Margaret Glenn (Massillon, Ohio).

Anne was preceded in death by her husband, Paul in 2008, granddaughter Anne Worthy in 1998, granddaughter Christina Camardese Savage in 2009, and brother Joe Kelly (Hudson, Ohio).

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday morning, May 4th at 11 o'clock in the Main Sanctuary of Mt.
