Katie Hoff, 107, of Greeley passed away on Monday, June 17, 2019. She was born July 6, 1911 in Denhof, Russia to Henry and Catherine Elizabeth (Schwartzkopf) Held. The family immigrated through Baltimore in 1913 and located in Windsor where she attended schools and would later receive an honorary diploma at the age of 100.

She married Joseph Hoff on February 18, 1932 in Windsor. They later moved to the Brush area, retiring in Greeley in 1976. Katie worked as a cook in the Brush schools, was a hard-working farm wife in the beet fields as well as a homemaker and mother.

She loved to sew, knit, crochet, quilt, bake and play the piano and organ. She played the piano at church in various capacities from an early age into her nineties. From age 85 to 100, Katie made over 1000 lap quilts, many of which were distributed around the world by missionaries. In her younger years she played softball and enjoyed watching baseball, especially the St. Louis Cardinals and later the Colorado Rockies.

Katie was a member of the Windsor German Congregational Church, Brush Congregational Church and Ladies Aide, St. Paul’s Congregational Church in Greeley and their Women’s Fellowship. She participated in 4-H and won many blue ribbons at the State Fair with her canned goods entries.

Thankful to have shared her life include her sons; Charles (Jackie) of Chandler AZ; Milton (Gloria) of The Villages FL; and Joseph (Lainy) of Greeley, 17 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and 27 great, great-grandchildren as well as numerous nieces, nephews and their families.

Katie was preceded in death by her husband Joe on February 14, 2000; a baby brother who died in infancy, brothers Henry and Jake Held and sisters, Catherine Knaus and Frieda Stromberger.

A Life Celebration Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at the Adamson Life Celebration Home, 2000 47th Ave., Greeley, CO 80634. A reception will follow the service with interment to conclude at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

I always enjoyed seeing and talking with my Aunt Katie, she was such a wonderful soul. We always talked about my dad who she confused him with me later in days, but then she would remember who I was and we would talk about the Rockies which she loved to watch, and tell stories to me and my children about her coming over from Russia when she was just a little girl and her and grandma and grandpa settled in Windsor where my dad was born and later moved east to Brush / Snyder Colorado area. Aunt Katie was so fun to listen to about her childhood and how she worked the beet fields and how she had to help grandma bake pies and bread. She really lived a long life and I always bragged about her to friends and other family how old she was and still so competent at her age. She will be missed and loved forever. She finally got GOD to call her up, she was here for a reason for so long and she has done her duty and is now with her lord and savior Jesus Christ. Say Hi to grandma, grandpa, my dad of course, and Aunt Catherine, and Uncle John, go play in the fields of heaven and be the happy little girl you were!

I have fond memories of Aunt Katie. It seemed she was there when I needed her advise and encouragement. We have had good times together. The time we shared at Country Club Villas will always be memorable to me. We had some good laughs and at times, shed a few tears together. She would often say, "I don't know why I'm still here". I would answer her with "God still has some work for you to do here". But, God called her name and she went home!!
I love you Aunt Katie. I will miss you, and think of you always.
My prayers for comfort are with your family.

I love you Aunt Katie! I will never forget our visits while I lived in Greeley and our trips to the salon so you could get a perm. I loved doing that for you. I loved watching and learning about the past when you and Grandma Knaus would get together. I love you and I will miss you!!

Prayers, hugs, and thoughts for the family.
