Vicki Hoffman Obituary

     Vicki Lynn Hoffman, age 72, of New Bethlehem, passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of December 13, 2023, after a lifelong battle with kidney disease.

      Born on January 17, 1951, Vicki was the oldest of three children to Bernard and Norma Kunselman of Fairmount City. After graduating Redbank Valley High School, she began her career with the J.M. Smucker Company in New Bethlehem, and later moved on to take a position with the Glen Gery Brick Company in Brookville.

     Vicki’s most noteworthy place of employment was the Redbank Valley Public Library. For over two decades she not only contributed as a librarian but was also sure to help everyone stay up to date on all of the town gossip. Vicki was a proud member of New Bethlehem’s First United Methodist Church.

     While the love that she had for all of her furry friends will always be remembered, Vicki’s greatest joys in life were her three granddaughters, Belle, Emma, and Cora.

Hoffman, her daughter Ashley Hoffman Nicklaus (Brian), her three granddaughters, Belle (15), Emma (14) and Cora (8), Annie Fenstermaker (A.K.A Crash) - who was like a second daughter, and her two siblings, Steven “Bernie” Kunselman (Betty), and Shelley Shaffer (Randy).

     Vicki is also survived by a number of beloved cousins, nieces, and a nephew.
