Hansen-Spear Funeral Home – Quincy, Illinois

Theresa Hoffman

Theresa Ann Hoffman, age 61, of Sunset Home, formerly of 527 Washington, joined her Lord and Savior on July 14, 2012, at 12:38 pm in Blessing Hospital after a long battle with Lupus.

Theresa was born December 1, 1950 in Quincy, Illinois, the daughter of Eric L. and Florence Hamann Hoffman Anderson. A 1970 graduate of Quincy High School, Theresa lived her entire life in Quincy.

Theresa worked as a cook at the Patio and was Head Maid at the Travel Lodge. She lived with her grandmother and her dad, and took care of her grandmother until her death. She then went to work at Sunset home as a head cook for the last 16 years, retiring due to ill health.

Theresa loved to cook and make homemade noodles for her family. She also loved to play Bingo. Her greatest pleasure was spending time with family and friends on cookouts and family get togethers. Her sister Phyllis called her Sweet Pea. She will be sadly missed by everyone who cared and loved her.

Survivors include three sisters, Sandra (Charles) Polley, Phyllis (Robert) Nutt, and Kathy (Jeffrey) Deege all of Quincy; a brother Eric (Shelley) Hoffman of Gallatin, TN; several nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, several cousins and a great great niece and nephew. Her pride and joy was her Yorkie, ‘Tia’, and was a very close neighbor and best friend, Polly Leckbee who loved her dearly.

Theresa joins God’s Heavenly Home and is reunited with her parents, grandparents aunts, uncles, cousins and a great nephew.
