Isabel Veronica (nee Poncelet) Hoffman was born on May 2, 1919, to John and Anne (nee Becker) Poncelet in the Meacham District, Sask. She was the third youngest in a family of 14 children and grew up immersed in the life of the family farm, helping with chores, cooking, sewing, gardening and canning. She attended Lucasville School and along with other sports, Isabel became known as the most sought after ball pitcher in the area. On October 12, 1943, Isabel married Nicholas Hoffman and the newlyweds spent their first four years in British Columbia, working there and making memories dancing, enjoying the outdoors and visiting, all pastimes that they would enjoy throughout their life together. Moving back to Bruno in 1947, Isabel and Nick took over the Hoffman family farm and later in 1957, they welcomed their son Gary, on Christmas Day. After many years on the farm, in 1979, Humboldt became home and together Isabel and Nick were a lively couple, dressing up to go out square dancing, taking time to go to the cabin in Wakaw Lake and continuing to garden and bake, visit and travel. In 1995, Nicholas passed away and Isabel continued to be close to him through the memories of their mutual loves such as gardening and taking time to share her zest for life, her time and her many talents with her family, especially her three grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Isabel lived on her own until 2013, when she moved to St. Mary’s Villa in Humboldt. She was always happy to visit those who dropped by, including her great-grandchildren who will always remember their memories of her kindness and love.
