OBITUARY - HARRIOT H. HOFFMAN

Harriot H. HOFFMAN, daughter of the late Ivan Martin and Susan Elizabeth (DENNEY) HOFFMAN and sister of the late Hollis Martin HOFFMAN, passed away on Friday, March 3, 2000 at St. Anthony's Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. She was 84 years, seven months of age.

Harriot was born on July 16, 1915 at the farm home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. David F. HOFFMAN, east of Redding, Iowa.

At the age of six weeks Harriot moved to St. Louis, Missouri where her father had accepted a position to teach the business subjects. He taught there until he retired in January, 1956.

At the age of three, the family moved to a home in Webster Groves, Missouri where Harriot lived until 1979 when she moved to an apartment in Friendship Village of South County, St. Louis.

Harriot went through the Webster Groves schools and then attended Washington University in St. Louis where she earned her bachelor of arts degree. In 1942 she was awarded a master's degree at the State University of Iowa, Iowa City.

She taught business subjects from 1937 - 1977 at Hermann High School in Hermann, Missouri; University City High School in University City, Missouri; and at Cleveland High School in St. Louis, Missouri (30 years). She was chairman of the business department for a number of years.

The family spent part of almost every summer in the Redding, Iowa area so her ties to relatives and friends in Ringgold county were strong.

She was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Webster Groves for over 70 years; a member of Alpha Xi Delta for over 50 years; a member of the Webster Groves chapter of the DAR; and she was treasurer for 27 years of the Alpha Nu chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, a teachers' honorary.

Harriot is survived by her HOFFMAN and DENNEY cousins and by her many friends.

Graveside services were conducted by Rev. Michael DRUHL on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 at the Redding Cemetery in Redding, Iowa.

Memorials may be made to Emmaus House, Marthasville, Missouri 63357.

Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home of Mount Ayr was in charge of the arrangements.
