Mrs. Hoffman passed away at their ranch home north of Lusk on the 25th of January from an illness of long standing.

Edna Julia Ring was born at Story, Nebraska, July 31, 1891, where she spent her girlhood. She received her education at a school near her birthplace and at Harrison, Nebraska, later attending Junior Normal at Alliance, Neb.

She taught many successful terms of school in the districts in Sioux County, Nebraska.

On June 6, 1917, she was united in marriage with John Hoffman at Crawford, Neb. With the exception of a few months during 1917 and 1918, which were spent at her husband's homestead and at her parents' home, they have made their home at their present place of abode near Hat Creek, Wyo.

She leaves to mourn her departure besides her husband, two sons, Lester and Donald, one daughter, Eileen of Hat Creek, Wyo.; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Ring of Crawford, Nebraska; two brothers, Lee of Scottsbluff, Neb.; Lawrence of Chadron, Neb.; four sisters, Mrs. Walter Anderson of Harrison, Neb.; Mrs. Hile Goodrich of Crawford, Neb.; Mrs Alex Gunn and Mrs. Carl Pearson of Hat Creek, Wyo., besides nephews and nieces and other relatives and a host of friends. Two sisters preceded her in death, Hattie Annie, in December 1902, and Mrs. Charles Fluent in January, 1932.

In 1918 she expressed her wish to serve God. Since that time she has sought to "fight the good fight of faith; she has finished her course; henceforth there is laid up for her a crown of righteousness."

Edna was a devoted wife, mother, daughter and sister; through she suffered much, she was never too ill to be interested in those around her and those who knew her will remember her as a true, generous and hospitable friend.
