Jane S. Hoffman, 86, of Windsor, beloved wife for 57 years of the late Clifford Walshe Hoffman, passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 22, 2017, at her home. Born in New York, NY on March 18, 1931, daughter of the late Frederic J. and Edna (Dieckmann) Schmidt, she was raised in Scarsdale, NY and had lived in Windsor since 1955. After high school, Jane attended the University of New Hampshire where she received a degree in nursing. She interned at Massachusetts General Hospital where she met and married Clifford and started a family. Jane was a dedicated member of Poquonock Community Church where she served as a Sunday School teacher and provided flower arrangements for the altar that originated from her many gardens. She worked at H&R Block preparing tax returns and enjoyed helping first generation families who did not speak English navigate the intricacies of income taxes. After her children where in school, Jane returned to college at the University of Hartford and received a degree in psychology. Later she took a position at The Aetna Insurance Company where she worked for over 20 years until her retirement in 1995. In her spare time, she enjoyed making crafts, sewing, cooking, gardening, and spending time with her family. Most of all, Jane will be remembered as a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother who supported her children in their artistic and creative endeavors and inspired them to develop an aesthetic sense. She leaves four sons, Christian Hoffman and his wife Petra of Inzlingen, Germany, Bruce Hoffman of Windsor, Anton Hoffman and his wife Monica of Enfield, and Kelly Hoffman of Bolton; two daughters, Lisa Jane Butterfield and her husband Jeffrey of Marlborough and Heidi Ann Soja and her husband Edward of Putnam; nine grandchildren, Kelly Ann Hoffman, Rebecca Hoffman, Dakota Hoffman, Colby Hoffman, Kathleen Hoffman, Caeli Hoffman, Dalton Butterfield, Lacey Butterfield, and Lexie Soja. Besides her husband, she was predeceased by a sister, Winifred Bugli. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017, 11 a.m., at the Poquonock Community Church, 1817 Poquonock Ave., Windsor. Burial will be private in the Ferncliff Mausoleum, Ferncliff Cemetery, Scarsdale, NY.
