HOFFMAN - Rosemary, 84, Johnstown, passed away on January 1, 2021, at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center. Born August 15, 1936, daughter of John and Mary (Malinak) Bardar. Rosemary was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Anna Bardar; brothers, John Bardar and Edward Bardar; and beloved uncle, Jacob Malinak.  “Rose” is survived by her “5 good kids”: John (Joyce) Hoffman, Susan Kowalski (James Deter), Sharon (Thomas) Swartz, Christopher Hoffman, and Deanne (Stephen) Braksator; faithful sister, Agnes Bardar; 10 loving grandchildren: Jamie Smith, Kyle Hoffman, Caleb Hoffman, Coleman Hoffman, Lauren Opalanko, Carolyn Detweiler, Renee Swartz, Amy Brake, Shay Braksator, and Adam Braksator, and 6 feisty great-grandchildren: Alaina and Avery Smith, T.J. Opalanko, and Olivia Rose, Isaiah, and Reese Detweiler.  Rose was a 1954 graduate of Johnstown High School, and was retired from Lee Hospital, where she worked in the Housekeeping Department.  Our mom acted bravely and worked tirelessly to provide her children with love, safety, and the best opportunities for happy, successful lives. A talented artist who was her own toughest art critic, she enjoyed painting and sketching.  She loved crossword puzzles, sudoku, jumbles, Jeopardy, and Pitt basketball. Her obituary picture represents a very happy, carefree time in her life, full of school dances and the joys of youth.  Rosemary was a member of Saint Francis of Assisi Church, Johnstown.   Francis G.
