Mass – 11 AM, Wed., May 17, 2023 Visitation – 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM Luncheon following the service Church of St. Michael 22120 Denmark Ave. in Farmington Burial – Resurrection Cemetery Shorewood, MN
Kimberly “Kim” Ann Hoffman (Hockert),
age 56, of Farmington, loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend, went home to Jesus, surrounded by family on May 9, 2023 after a hard-fought battle with kidney cancer.
Kim left behind husband, Steve; children, Joseph (Terra) and Jake (Cassidy); grandson, Wyatt; mom, Dianne; siblings, Brenda (Cavitt) and Jeff (Jolie) and seven nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her dad, grandparents, several uncles, and Annie, her feline companion of 20+ years. She was a beloved “Oma” to two-year old Wyatt and will be watching over two more grandchildren that are due shortly.
Kim maintained a positive attitude throughout her illness. Even on her darkest days she managed a smile and remained armed with witty ‘zingers’ to throw at everyone around her.
Kim was born to John and Dianne (Koep) Hockert on June 23, 1966. She was the first of three children, and truly the proverbial “hard act to follow.”
Kim met Steve, the love of her life, while earning her bachelor’s degree at The University of St. Thomas. In their case the second time was the charm. After a first encounter miss, they met again, eventually wed, and were happily married for 33 years. As their favorite song (Patience) by Guns & Roses goes – Steve is … “shedding tears because he is missing her, thinks about her every day now, but is still alright to smile and will keep her close in his heart…”
She worked hard all her life including a 30+ year career at Feltl and Company. Kim was active in her church and was an endlessly devoted mother who never missed a ball game and spent countless nights camping out under the stars with the Scouts. She was kind to all. Her vivacious and giving spirit will be missed by many. Kim doted on her family and was happiest when she was with them, playing cards and dominos, tossing bean bags at reunions, or just hanging out. She loved to catch us forgetting to say, “last domino.”
She had many passions. Kim was an avid Vikings and Twins fan, loved growing flowers, creating crafts, and spending time with her many friends at holiday costume parties and dinners at Wiederholt’s Supper Club.
Even though Kim was taken too soon, she lived an extraordinary and faith-filled life surrounded by people who loved and adored her. Please join us as we celebrate Kim’s life at 11:00AM, Wednesday, May 17th, 2023 at the Church of St. Michael, 22120 Denmark Ave. in Farmington. Mass will be held at 11:00 AM with visitation starting at 10:00 AM. There will be a luncheon immediately following Mass.
Kim will be laid to rest at Resurrection cemetery in Shorewood during a ceremony that will be held after the luncheon.
