Artist, youth advocate Vicki Hoffman dies
October 15, 2013
A celebration of life for beloved Issaquah art and youth advocate Vicki Hoffman is scheduled for 1 p.m. Oct. 19 at Redmond’s Timberlake Church, 4505 236th Ave. N.E.
The family will receive friends at Flintoft’s Funeral Home from 4 -7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, at 540 E. Sunset Way, Issaquah.
Hoffman, a tireless advocate for art in schools, as well as a board member on the Issaquah Community Network and the Issaquah School District PTSA Council, passed away Oct. 12, after suffering a brain aneurysm Oct. 10, according to a slew of emails from Hoffman’s friends and colleagues.
An active parent in the Issaquah School District, Hoffman once served as the Clark Elementary School PTSA president, and is largely responsible for reviving the district’s volunteer art docent program.
Hoffman also taught classes at artEAST and was the first elected chairwoman of the Drug Free Community Coalition, a subcommittee of the Issaquah Community Network with a mission to support healthy youths and strong families. She was also a winner of the Issaquah Park Board Volunteer of the Year in 2008.
Hoffman is survived by her husband Stan, and children Ashley and Kyle.
As organizers continue to plan the celebration of life, they are asking community members to email photos they may have of Hoffman to firstname.lastname@example.org. All photos will be shared with Hoffman’s family.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Hoffman’s name can be made to one of the following charities: Issaquah Friends of Youth, Issaquah Schools Foundation or the Issaquah Food Bank.
