Carol A. Hoffman, 72, of Westminster, passed away on Monday, December 30, 2019 at her home. Born on July 11, 1947 in Vallejo, California, she was the daughter of the late Howard W. Calver and Reba A. Yandeau Calver. She is survived by her loving husband of 49 years, John M. Hoffman III.
She spent her childhood in coastal Connecticut, later moving outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania as a teenager. Carol earned her undergraduate degree from Shippensburg State College and taught in several school districts. She enjoyed crafting and went on to manage her own successful sewing business. Carol enjoyed spending time at the beach, supporting the Baltimore Ravens, birdwatching with her husband, and baking.
