Teresa Hoffman went to be with her Lord on June 19, 2014 at
Kavanagh House in Des Moines, after a 2-year fight with pancreatic
cancer. Born in Fort Madison, Teresa was raised in Waukee, where she
lived until her marriage to Tim Hoffman in 1996, when they
established their home in Indianola. Teresa enjoyed volunteering for
Hospice and served as care coordinator for their church, making many
hospital and home visits to those in need.
They moved to Clive in 2002, where she volunteered with Hospice of
Central Iowa at Kavanagh House.
In 2003, they moved to Sigourney, where they have farmed since.
Teresa has been an active member of Lancaster Christian Church,
teaching Sunday School, taking pictures of a host of church events,
and serving on the church board until her illness forced her to
leave the board. Teresa loved her Lord with all her heart, and she
had a great burden for those who do not know Him.
Teresa had a great capacity for love and caring, and was much
beloved by her family and friends. She had a great smile and an
infectious laugh. She enjoyed travelling, baking, scrapbooking,
stamping, photography and just about any other activity she could do
with friends. Embracing her role as a farmerís wife, Teresa looked
forward to harvest when she worked in the field with Tim. She loved
caring for and playing with her yellow lab, Jake.
Teresa is survived by her husband, Tim, her son, Ryan DeWitt of
West Des Moines, stepson, Jed Hoffman of West Des Moines, parents,
James and Betty DeWitt of Waukee, sister Janice (John) Jordan of Sun
City West AZ, and brother Jim DeWitt of West Des Moines.
