Hannah Paris Hofmann
Hannah Paris Hofmann, a beautiful daughter, was born in Durango, Colorado on November 6th, 2000 and returned to her heavenly home on March 11th, 2021 while working and studying in Greeley Colorado at the age of 20. She had an incredible spirit and lived life with a passion, helped people even when she was struggling and always loved her family and friends with intensity and enthusiasm. In a field of roses, she was a wildflower.
Growing up in Bayfield CO, she worshipped and was baptized at Pine Valley Church and spent much of her life enjoying the Wommer Family Ranch. She attended school in Bayfield, spent a semester as an exchange student in New Zealand and graduated with honors from Southwest Colorado eSchool. She attended University of Northern Colorado in Greeley where she was a straight “A” student majoring in Biology. She worked at two assisted living facilities from the time she was 15 until she passed away. She enjoyed talking to the inspiring and funny patients she cared for, driving the long way home, spending time on social media via her IPhone, bemoaning the stupidity and ugliness of the world, but standing up for the less fortunate and downtrodden. She helped her family and her friends with their homework, she loved nature and especially animals, and saw the beauty and the pain most of us rarely stop to see. She loved ridiculous videos, outcast and mind-bending shows, horror movies and true crime podcasts. She would watch synced shows long distance with her Grandma or boyfriend to make her life a little more like home. She took 14 hours and 58 minutes after induced labor to decide to join this world. She spent most of her life either on the peak or in the valley and life usually took all her energy, but cleverness and caring always shined through. Her intelligent mind radiated with excellence, her beautiful smile, caring grace and passion will be desperately missed. Her family looks forward to seeing her again healed and made whole with Jesus Christ.
Hannah is survived by her father David Hofmann, her mother and stepfather, Jaime and Justin Messier, sister Abigail Messier (her sunflower), brother Kyle (Kayla Frugé) Hofmann, grandmother Terri McMinn-Lewis, step-grandfather Danny Lewis, grandfather Monty McMinn and grandmother Irma Hofmann; Her aunts and uncles, Jeremy (Gina) Perino-McMinn, Maureen (Ken) Holman, (Ralph) Jones, Paul (Maureen) Hofmann, Kathleen (David) Peterson, Chris Hofmann, Carol (Michael) Carroll; Her cousins, Blaine (Cody Solders) Holman, Stephanie (Matt) Holman-Wiggs, Solomon (Elizabeth Hubbs) Herrera, Keith Herrera, Sarah Herrera, James Hofmann, Maggie Hofmann, Daniel Peterson, John Peterson, Mary (Robert Fish) Peterson, Monica Carroll, Molly Carroll, Maria Herrera, Kate Herrera, Brooke Herrera and William Herrera. She also had many extended Wommer family and Messier stepfamily relations, including Dawn, Brooklyn, Nathan, Jen and Jake whom she cherished. She would certainly like to have her close friends Akira Mitchell, Brooke, Julia, Jordan, and childhood friend Sara Johnson along with her animal friends Giraffe, Bagel, Biscuit, and BumbleBee mentioned. Hannah was preceded in death by her grandfather William Hofmann, aunt Ann Jones, cousin Eliana Herrera, great aunt Lorna Farrow, great uncle Monty Wommer, Angle and Handsome Buster.
Her family would like to thank everyone that has given time and support in any manner towards making their transition easier and less painful.

I found this picture of Hannah just before her sky jump with her cousins. What a wonderful memory of her love of adventure. This is just one of many. Missing you and your loving spirit. Uncle Paul

I'll miss our talks about Margaret Atwood books, murder docs & podcasts, animals, and Studio Ghibli. Kyle and I miss you more and more with each passing day. We love you and hope you are at peace. Hugs.

I have so many memories with you. We were always the two little blonde girls in the family. You were so kind and always made me laugh. I will miss you so much.

You were my best friend and somebody I could talk to about anything. You were the best roommate and I’m so lucky to have met you. You were such a ray of sunshine and would always light up the room. I just wish I could call you and be able to see you. I listen to float on all the time and I think of you. Akira misses you so much and he thinks about you all the time too. Jordan and I have printed out all of our pictures that we had together and framed them, we both love you so much. All the animals miss you here and I know you’re watching over me. I miss you and I’m hoping you’ve found peace.

You were the greatest best friend I could have ever asked for. You have gone through so many unbelievable hardships and hard turns, but I know you'd want us to remember the good times.
I will forever be grateful that you reached out and we made up for lost time. I am so, so sorry we didn't get to have this summer together like we planned. I'll always cherish the time we spent together, weeks on end. Your jokes, dances, and stories never failed to make me laugh. I remember when you told me you stuck a panda sticker on your dad's car, even when he said not to. I also remember our very first playdates in elementary school. Our first night together included seeing Planet Earth with your dad, and you wanting the biggest popcorn because everything had to be just right. You loved animals so, very much. I also remember our first time at your mom's house, when we rode bikes and I crashed. You made sure I was feeling better before we walked back. These were just some of our neverending memories and secrets. Who would have known we would be best friends for so long? I'll never find anyone else like you.
My years with you were truly, honestly the best times of my life. I am so blessed that you felt the same. The moment when we agreed we were soulmates will forever be in my memory. No one could ever replace the light you brought into my life.
I know you'll continue to look after me, Brooke, your amazing family, and your boyfriend whom you loved very much. Thank you so much for everything. I cannot wait to see you again. I love you tons.
