Pearl Ellen, daughter of John V. and Margaret (Struve) Coleman, was born October 14, 1925, at Manning in Carroll County, Iowa. She attended one-room country school at Washington Township #5 and graduated from Manning High School in 1944.

On May 1, 1946, Ellen was united in marriage with Julius Francis Hoffman. One son Michael was born to this union. Ellen and Jul made their home in Manning where Ellen worked at Priebe and Son and Nelson Manufacturing. In 1969 they moved to Wheaton, Illinois where Jul worked until his retirement in 1988.

Throughout the years, Ellen was an avid reader and writer, particularly of short stories about everyday happenings on the farm and in the Manning community during the thirties and forties. For 30 years, she crafted creative Christmas tree ornaments for neighborhood children. Ellen enjoyed collecting genealogy for her and Jul’s family and was a charter member of the Carroll County Historical Society.

On Friday, April 26, 2019, Ellen passed away at Belmont Village in Carol Stream, Illinois, at the age of 93 years.

Pearl was preceded in death by her father John V. Coleman; mother Margaret and husband Herbert Hinze; husband Julius Hoffman; Aunt Lillian and husband Henry Brandt; a stepbrother Orville Hinze; and a stepsister Pearl Hinze. She is survived by a son: Michael Hoffman of Exira; Sister Shirley Coleman Dewiller of Dryden, WA; Stepsister-in-law Iva Hinze of Carroll; Nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
