Deborah E. Hoffman of O'Fallon, Missouri, passed away at the age of 75 on Friday, Nov. 15, 2019.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Sherman Hoffman; her parents, Ernest Roth and Virginia Davis; and her brother, Richard Roth.

Deborah was born in Chester.

Deborah is survived by her children, John and Jeff Hoffman; her grandchildren, Mitchell Rawson, Emilee (Kaleb) Redmond and Mackensie Hoffman; her great-grandchild, Mia Redmond; her siblings, Virginia "Tootsie" Liefer and David (Monica) Roth; and she was a loving aunt, cousin, and friend to many.

Deborah loved to cook and would cook all the amazing holiday dinners for her family. She truly was a baker extraordinaire, baking cookies for everyone on the holidays.

Deborah was always a strong person with a character that reminded people of Jackie Kennedy -- gracious, formal, and a real fighter who beat cancer five times.

Her trips with her family were always something she looked forward to and she treasured the memories she made on those vacations. She will be dearly missed as a mother and as someone who treated many in life as if she were their own grandmother.

Visitation for Deborah Hoffman will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21 at Baue Funeral Home, 311 Wood St., O'Fallon, Missouri, 63366.

The funeral service will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, at Baue Funeral Home in O'Fallon.

Contributions in Deborah's memory may be made to the American Cancer Society.
