(Feb. 25, 1922 - Dec. 8, 2017)

Lillian I. Hoffmann, 95, of Cody, died peacefully on Dec. 8, 2017.

Born Feb. 25, 1922, in Aberdeen, Washington, Lillian was the daughter of Rose and Elmer Smith.

She married Howard T. Hoffmann on April 5, 1946, in Olympia, Washington. The couple lived in Spokane, Washington, for a short time and then moved to Billings.

In December 1951 they moved to Cody and started Hoffmann Typewriter Co. 

In her spare time, she enjoyed playing canasta, camping and rock hunting. She was well known for her commitment to family and community, nursing home, hospital, VFW Auxiliary, and Does (Elk’s club). She will be deeply missed by those whose lives she touched.

She was preceded in death by her husband; brother Richard Smith, and sister Elsie Vavrek.

Lillian is survived by brother Albert (Genevieve) Smith; sons Howard (Susan) Hoffmann, George (Marge) Hoffmann, and Gerald (Jil) Hoffmann; grandsons Douglas and Ty Hoffmann and granddaughters Keli and Sabrina Hoffmann; and great-grandsons Grant and Easton Hoffmann.

A memorial service will be held in the springtime; an announcement will be posted at that time.
