Janet D. Hoffpauir passed away peacefully on June 26th, embraced by family and friends. Janet was born on September 20, 1943, in Toledo, Ohio, the first of three children of Paul and Betty Dutcher. She received her Bachelor's degree from Northwestern State University and her Master's degree from University of New Orleans. On June 15, 1962, she married the love of her life, Rev. C. Richard "Dickie" Hoffpauir. Following the path of the Methodist ministry in Louisiana, they made homes in Tioga, Franklin, Natchitoches, Alexandria, Metairie, Sulphur and their retirement home in Baton Rouge. Janet's involvement in the LA Methodist ministry included service as Conference President and Conference Treasurer. Her final and most proud career was as a Legislative Auditor for the State of Louisiana. Janet was a complex person with many interests and extraordinary talents. She was widely known as a formidable opponent at any board or online word game. She loved travel and mountains were always her favorite destination. With her Father, Janet was an avid Birder, knowing all the birds of the state. From her accounting and auditing background, she was a detailed oriented person and wanted to read every contract and fully understand everything that passed by her eyes. Janet was an incredibly generous and thoughtful person, always doing way more for others than expected. She relished online shopping and Amazon will miss her. Janet was preceded in death by her husband Rev. C. Richard Hoffpauir and her parents Paul and Betty Dutcher. She is survived by her sister Paula Walker and brother David Dutcher, their spouses, 2 nephews and wives and 2 great-nieces. A Celebration of Life service, followed by a Reception with the Family will be held at Blake at the Grove, 9511 Creekview Dr, Baton Rouge on Saturday, July 21, at 1:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, Janet would appreciate donations to Hospice of Baton Rouge whose staff extended her quality of life and were such compassionate caregivers. hospicebr.org/giving.
