Betty Hoffer, beloved and determined mother and wife, triumphed over the pain of multiple sclerosis at the age of 65. Betty, who served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, had an indomitable spirit of adventure. She was an expert in Tae Kwon Do, knew how to fly a glider plane, worked as an artist in copper enamel, loved the outdoors, and made what was undisputedly the best apple pie ever eaten by anyone, anywhere. She was exact, and exacting, and if anything was out of place in heaven before she arrived, it has now been fixed. Her decades-long example of strength and courage in pain was an inspiration to everyone who witnessed it. Betty was born on July 10, 1950 in Amherst, Ohio and passed on June 14, 2016. She will be missed and always remembered by her mother Magdalen Potts; her husband Charles Hoffer; her daughter Stephanie Hoffer; her little sister Mary Lee, and her little brothers Bob, Ira, Roy, and David Shaffer. Her father Roy Shaffer and her brother, Paul Shaffer, preceded her in death. The family will hold a private service. In lieu of flowers, friends who wish to honor Betty's life may make a contribution to the Ohio Buckeye Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Dear Charlie, I will miss Betty. She was one of the kindest people I knew. We both started taking Julius Kosan's copper enameling course at BGSU-Firelands at the same time many years ago. She sat by my side a quiet inspiration. Susan and I will toast her memory with a glass of wine tonight and remember our wonderful visits at your table.
You are in our thoughts, Joel Rudinger
