It's is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Sandra Lou (Hepper) Hoffman on 11/18/2022. Her Journey through life ended surrounded by loved ones, family and friends alike. Sandra (Sandy to many) was born in Minot, ND on May 02, 1944 to Thelma & Elmer Hepper where she resided, attended school and graduated college. The same cold of "Nord'a Kota” is where she met her husband James Hoffman ("Jim / Jimbo" to many) of 54 years whom, with great sorrow and remembrance, proceeded her in death in 2018.
Their lives led them to Tri-Cities, WA where they started their endeavors in education and a family, along with forming many lasting friendships. Sandy and Jim moved on to Spokane, WA continuing their shared passion in the educational field. Sandy's fun loving enthusiasm for her family, career and community made for may even more lasting friendships along the way. Upon retirement they moved full time to the family home, in Nine Mile Falls, WA. Sandy enjoyed hosting many gatherings for family and friends (always up for cards/ board games, "rings", boat rides and a few pulls on the slot machines at a casino). With her joy and exuberance for life she embraced her family, old and new friends with her laughter, love and light. She will continue to shine in all the hearts she touched.
This amazing woman, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, educator and friend to all is survived by her two sons Jeff and Marc Hoffman, three grandchildren Madison Shaul, Scarlett and Hadley Hoffman. Her Brothers, Dean (Punky), James (Huncey) and Michael (Walleye Whisper) Hepper's All. Her Eldest brother Gene (Eugene Hepper - aka the River Boat Gambler) sadly preceded her in death in 1992. Sandy is survived by countless nieces/nephews, extended family and friends whom loved her vibrant fun loving demeanor. She touched many lives though family, friends and education and we are all better for her being with us; she will be greatly missed and remembered.
The Family will have a celebration of life in the Springtime as the grass turns green, flowers bloom, life is as vibrant as she was and surround our memories of this phenomenal soul.
