Marcella Mabel Hoff, daughter of John A. and Esther (Haas) Hoff was born May 15, 1929 at Venturia, ND. This is where she attended school through the eighth grade. She helped on the family farm until her marriage to Henry W. Hoffman on September 23, 1951 at Ashley, ND. They lived on the family farm seven miles west of Venturia where they farmed.

In 1978, Marcella moved to Aberdeen where she worked at Aberdeen Living Center until 1997. She then moved to Ashley, ND.
