Kathryn Elizabeth Hoffman

February 10, 1945 — July 10, 2023

We mourn the loss of Kathryn Elizabeth Hoffman, born on February 10, 1945, and passed away on July 10, 2023. Kathryn was a woman of great strength, wisdom, and wit. Her sharp intellect and charming sense of humor lit up any room she entered. We bid her a sorrowful farewell, but her spirit and memory will live on in the hearts of those she touched.

Kathryn is survived by her children, daughter Barbra Chronister and son William Asher II. Her legacy continues through her grandson, Ryan Overbo, granddaughter, Rachelle Buckhammer, and granddaughter, Kathryn Rhodes. She was predeceased by her son, Robert Rhodes, her mother, Carol McCraw, and her beloved husband, Ray Rhodes.

Kathryn's educational journey began at Woodland High School, North West Street, Woodland, CA, where she graduated in 1963. Years later, she received her Associate of Arts in Psychology from Sacramento State University Arboretum, State University Drive, Sacramento, CA, in 1983. Her academic achievements were a testament to her determination and hard work. Kathryn attended Universities in both Missoula and Bozeman, MT, as she pursued her Masters in Psychology. Kathryn retired from a tenure at Sac MTD.

She united in matrimony with Ray Rhodes in 1965. Together, they welcomed two children into the world between 1966 and 1967. Kathryn was a loving and caring mother, always nurturing and supportive of her children. Kathryn married William Asher May 20, 1973, and they welcomed their son, William Asher II, into the world in 1974.

Kathryn made the move in 1984 from West Sacramento, CA, to Missoula, MT, and finally settling down in Bozeman MT, in 1985. Kathryn (or Beth, that’s what everyone called her) drove a school bus in Bozeman for years, as well as driving Regional Transit bus in both Sacramento and West Sacramento.

Characterized as funny, smart, and a fighter, Kathryn was a woman of many facets. One of her most notable achievements was her service as both a Girl Scout and a Mariner Scout during her high school years. This not only exhibited her leadership skills but also her dedication to community service from a very young age.

The void Kathryn has left is immeasurable, but so too is the love and joy she brought into our lives. Though she is no longer with us physically, her impact is everlasting. She was an extraordinary woman and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
