When her four sons were in school, Ms. Hoffman was active in local PTA and sports organizations.
After the boys grew older, she was manager of Mon Petit Chou boutique, located at the corner of Santa Cruz Avenue and El Camino Real in Menlo Park, for 10 years. She later became manager at Calla, retiring in 2000. An active parishioner at St. Raymond Church for more than 50 years, she enjoyed singing in the church choir.
She was an avid Giants fan from the time the team relocated to San Francisco in 1958.
Survivors include her four sons, William of Murphys, David of San Francisco, Thomas of San Mateo, and Timothy of Belmont; brother Thomas; sister Anastasia; and nine grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Marvin "Dave" Hoffman.
Memorials in her name may be made to the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health, 400 Hamilton Ave., Suite 340, Palo Alto, CA 94301.
