Emma Advertine Louise Hoff-Gbarbea
The Hoff, Gbarbea, and Knuckles family are saddened to announce the death of Emma Advertine Louise Hoff-Gbarbea. On Wednesday, May 17, 2017, one of God´s mightiest warriors was called home from the battlefield. She is the daughter or the late Reverend Dr. Advertus A. Hoff Sr. and Mrs. Emma L. Knuckles-Hoff. In her lifetime, she touched the lives of many people far and wide. She had a smile that would light up any room, and a personality that walked into the room long before she did.
