Tom and Grace Hurley

Grace L. Hurley

Aug. 15, 1934 – May 29, 2019

Grace Lou Hoffman was born Aug. 15, 1934, in Wilber to Lewis and Albina (Vanourny) Hoffman and was granted an earthly life of 84 years, 9 months and 14 days, passing away in the early morning hours of May 29, 2019, in Louisville, Colorado.

On Feb. 21, 1955, she married the love of her life, John T. (Tom) Hurley, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in York. They were happily married for 63 years and 2 months until Tom’s death on April 21, 2018. Together they raised six children, John (Tom) Hurley, Jr. (Theresa Brown), Kathie Summers (Gary), Pat Hurley, Barb Beck (Mike), Jim Hurley and Chris Hurley (Allison). There are 11 grandchildren, Jennifer, Kelly, Timothy, James, Braden, Taylor, John, Chad, Josh, Shelbie and Brian; 12 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. Grace is also survived by her brother, Dennis Hoffman (Diana), as well as many other loving relatives and friends.

On May 29, Grace was reunited with many who had gone before her that she had missed so much: her husband, Tom; granddaughter, Taylor; parents, Lewis and Albie; sisters, Evelyn Plucknett and Annie Inderlied; as well as countless other beloved relatives and friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial for Tom and Grace Hurley will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 7, 2019, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, the church they were married in, with burial to follow at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery in York. Memorial contributions can be made to a charity of the donor’s choice in Grace’s loving memory.
