Florence Frances Hoffman, age 96, passed away peacefully on June 12, 2024, in Ashburn, Virginia. She was the devoted wife for 57 years of the late Ralph Nicholas Hoffman, Jr.; beloved mother of Susan (Todd) Rowley and Barbara (Joe) Benvenuto; and loving grandmother of James and John Rowley, and Rachel, Andrew, Vincent, and David Benvenuto. Her sister, Helen Zak, and brothers Edward, Eugene, Walter, and Victor Pinta predeceased her. Florence received her nursing undergraduate degree from Loyola College (now Loyola University) in Chicago. She retired as an Air Force 1st Lt., whose service included active medical duty at Holloman AFB at Alamogordo, New Mexico, in the 1950s, where she worked alongside the nation’s first jet test pilots. During her distinguished service, Florence was honored with the title of “Flight Nurse.” In addition, she served in Alaska, close to the Russian border, at a time when tensions between the World Powers were at their highest levels, and she was a recipient of the National Defense Service Medal. Florence completed her long term of service to others within the Northern Virginia region’s health community as a member of the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Inova Fairfax Hospital.

Memories Timeline


  1. I was a young bridesmaid at the wedding of Florence & Ralph. It was a beautiful military wedding and the first time I flew in an airplane with my family to join in the ceremony and celebration

    My sympathy to Susan & Barbara & their families

  2. From Patrrcia J Liotta, niece of Florence Hoffman I was told that Aunt Florence was my first baby-sitter as the younger sister of Helen my mother. Perhaps it was the first time she was a care-giver during her lengthy and noble nursing career. I attended her wedding at the air force base in New Mexico and remember the patriotic wedding ceremony with raised sabers to this day. I cherished my visits with Ralph, Florence, Susan and Barbara. Who can forget our car ride to the top of Pike’s Peak. Please accept our most sincerest grief and sympathy on the passing of Florence. Love to all within the Hoffman family. Pat and Joe Liotta
