She married Thomas Herman Hoffman on November 5, 1966, in Marion. Thomas is the son of Ralph and Caroline (Wenzlick) Hoffman. Dorothy was a wonderful stay at home mother who also assisted with the care of the family farm and maintaining rental properties. She was devoted to her family and friends. She was kind-hearted, took great care of her family and friends, loved animals and worked hard all her life. She will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved her. Spending time with her family was one of the most important things to Dorothy. Because of that, she has requested that rather than sending flowers, please take your family out for an evening or spend time with a loved one in her honor.
