Fund set up for accident victim’s children

A fund has been established for the children of Dana Hoffman, an Ennis resident who lost her life in a tragic automobile accident on Nov. 6.
While on her way to work at the CVS Distribution Center, Hoffman, 37, was struck by a piece of metal that bounced off another vehicle and smashed through her windshield. Emergency personnel pronounced her dead at the scene on the north side of Hwy. 287 at Sterilite Road.
Police were unable to distinguish the piece of metal but speculated it is half of a collar from a drilling rig truck. No other information has been made available regarding the origin of the metal object.
Hoffman was the human resources manager for the CVS Distribution Center and was a member of the Ennis Noon Lions Club.
“Whether they worked with Dana closely on a committee, or knew her as a member of your organization, or maybe just met her at a social function, no one will ever forget her energy, her humor and her zest for life,” said Chuck Martin, Senior Human Resources manager for CVS/Pharmacy. “She was truly a unique individual who will be sorely missed by everyone whose life she touched.”
According to Martin, Hoffman is survived by 16-year-old Samantha and 12-year-old Danny.
“As everyone can imagine, Dana would want only the best for Sam and Danny,” said Martin.
In order to help give her children the best, Dana’s parents, Dave and Linda Lucas, have set up a fund for the benefit of the children in order to provide for their educational and personal needs as they move forward toward young adulthood.
Those wishing to contribute can send a donation by check to: First Commonwealth Bank, 1626 Pitt Street, P.O. Box 265, Jennerstown, PA 15547, Attn: Hoffman Children’s Fund. The check should be made out to: D. Lucas for the benefit of Samantha and Daniel Hoffman. Include account number 7120096594 on the remittance line.
“We hope everyone will please accept the appreciation of Dana’s family for all of your friendship, your prayers and your good wishes,” Martin said.
