Deborah E. Hoffman of O’Fallon, MO, passed away at the age of 75 on Friday, November 15, 2019. She was preceded in death by her husband, Sherman Hoffman; her parents, Ernest Roth and Virginia Davis; and her brother, Richard Roth.

Deborah is survived by her children, John and Jeff Hoffman; her grandchildren, Mitchell Rawson, Emilee (Kaleb) Redmond, and Mackensie Hoffman; her great-grandchild, Mia Redmond; her siblings, Virginia “Tootsie” Liefer and David (Monica) Roth; and she was a loving aunt, cousin, and friend to many.

Deborah loved to cook and would always cook all the amazing holiday dinners for her family.  She truly was a baker extraordinaire, baking cookies for many people on the holidays.

Deborah was always a strong person with a character that reminded people of Jackie Kennedy – gracious, formal, and a real fighter who beat cancer five times. Her trips with her family were always something she looked forward to and she treasured the memories she made on those vacations. She will be dearly missed as a mother and as someone who treated many in life as if she were their own grandmother.

Contributions in Deborah’s memory may be made to the American Cancer Society.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Debbie was a wonderful person and treated me like family. Remember, no matter how difficult the time is now for you, she is again with Sherman and is truly out of pain and is at peace.

    My sympathy to the Roth and Hoffman families. Sherman and I were classmates at Sparta and I met Deb there many years ago at a class reunion. I found our that Deb and I had the same home town of Chester.
    She was a wonderful lady.
    God bless each of you for your loss.
