Audrey Marie (Hoffman) Jochim died.
Audrey was born at Cogswell, North Dakota on March 19, 1921. She was the youngest of four children born to Horace and Antoinette (Theiss) Hoffman. Audrey received her formal education at Cogswell, graduating from high school there in 1939. During the next two years she attended the Whapeton State Science School, where she earned her associate degree in office and clerical studies. In the years that followed, Audrey worked for the Veterans Administration in New York City, N.Y., Washington, D.C., and Fargo, N.D. While living in Fargo, she met a Montana farmer, Anton M. Jochim, on a blind date. Audrey and Tony “fell in love” and were married in Fargo on Oct. 30, 1954. Soon after, they moved to the Jochim farm south of Inverness, where Audrey worked diligently as a homemaker and mother of two daughters. The Jochims retired in 1982; they leased out the farmland but continued to live in their farm home. In 1985 they purchased a cabin near the West Glacier Golf Course, where they enjoyed spending their summer months. They remained active in both communities, Inverness and West Glacier, throughout their retirement years.
