Judith (Judi) Irene Hoff
April 3, 1945 – May 4, 2016
Judi was born in Seattle, WA on April 3, 1945 to her parents Harry & Lois Dunning. She had two sisters, Eileen and Carol Dunning.
Judi graduated from Ballard High School in 1963. She married Robert Hoff shortly thereafter and together they had their daughters, Valerie and Vicki, and adopted their sons, Robert and Keith. When her sister, Carol, suddenly died, leaving behind two children, Angie and Amy – Judi did not hesitate and knew that she needed to step in to finish raising them. She was glad to do it, even though it meant she would not have the retirement she had planned. She knew that God had a plan and she followed it completely. Judi was a very proud grandmother of 10: Larry and Troy Lindsey; Jasmine Hoff; Amandalyn, Kaelyn and Justin Boersema; Alyssa and Eric Breznen; Levi and Connor Maragno.
Judi worked at Ballard Hospital, which was later acquired by Swedish Hospital, from 1979 until she retired early in December 2004 to take care of Angie and Amy. Upon retirement, Judi was a Certified Medical Staff Coordinator and was the Director of Medical Staff Services for Swedish Hospital. Judi also served as President of the Washington Association of Medical Staff Services and was a contributing member of the National Association of Medical Staff Services. She had articles published and was a presenter at several conferences over her tenure. She also was part of the National Association of Female Executives.
While she was a highly qualified and admired professional, she was an even more amazing mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and Christian. God and her family were her top priorities. She always put everyone else first, even if it meant she will “go without”. She always knew in her heart that God would take care of her when she needed it, and He has. She cherished her time with her grandchildren so much, always wanting the best for them and did as much as she could. She would help her grandchildren with homework; she would read to them, play games with them and spoil them as much as possible.
She enjoyed doing family dinners on Sunday, with the extended family all coming over to enjoy each other’s company. We would eat, talk, play pinochle, eat dessert, and then sometimes watch a movie or a sports game on TV. It was a family time that we all cherished and will remember forever.
Judi will be buried next to her sister, Carol Dunning, at Evergreen Washelli. We will have a Memorial Service at 1pm on Wednesday, May 11, 2016, at United Evangelical Free Church located at 1420 NW 80th St. in Seattle with a reception afterwards.
Judi was preceded in death by her parents, Harry & Lois Dunning, and sister, Carol Dunning. Judi is survived by her children Valerie Hoff, Vicki (and Rob) Breznen, Robert Hoff Jr., Keith Hoff, Angie (and Dave) Maragno, and Amy Dunning as well as her sister, Eileen Dunning, and her grandchildren Larry & Troy Lindsey; Jasmine Hoff; Amandalyn, Kaelyn and Justin Boersema; Alyssa and Eric Breznen; Levi and Connor Maragno.
