Marilyn Jean Hoffman, daughter of Donald Pittack and Lois Ries, was born on October 10, 1944 in Norfolk, Nebraska. Marilyn attended school in Plainview, Nebraska graduating with the class of 1962. Marilyn then attended The Norfolk Junior College and graduated with an associate degree in business administration. She worked at Continental Grain Company in Omaha before moving back to Northeast Nebraska to marry Dennis Hoffman on August 31, 1968 at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Osmond, NE, where they lived on the farm for almost 40 years. Marilyn worked at The Osmond General Hospital in the medical records department until the birth of their daughter. She then had many, many fun-filled years providing daycare for many, many children in the Osmond area until she decided to babysit her own grandchildren in 2006, when she and Denny moved to Gretna, Nebraska to be close to their children and grandchildren.
Marilyn was a loving wife, mom, grandma, daughter, sister and friend, a caregiver to all. When she wasn't cooking, she could be found reading, spending time outside, playing cards, dancing to country music with her family, walking, making trips to Starbucks with her granddaughters, attending her grandchildren's events, and "shopping."
Marilyn is survived by her husband, Dennis, daughter Lisa Jones of Elkhorn, Nebraska, sons Brian Hoffman of Elmwood, Nebraska and Andrew Hoffman of Clermont, Florida. Grandchildren, Darian, Christian, Bentleigh, Natalie, William, Madelyn and Brayden. Sisters Diane Janssen, Jan Peck, Shelly Workman and brother Mike Pittack.
