November 7, 1963 - July 22, 2021
Joni Hofacre, 57, of Worthington, passed away peacefully at her residence on July 22, 2021, after a 5 ½ year battle with lung cancer. She was born on November 7, 1963, in Millersburg OH, to the late William and Mabel (Korns) Kiser. She married Kent Hofacre on June 6, 1987, in Holmesville, OH. In 1986, she graduated from the University of Akron and earned a bachelor's degree in accounting. She worked at Qwest Corporation for 7 years within their payroll department until the birth of her triplets. Joni was a compassionate, caring, and loving wife and mother. Her selflessness was highlighted by her dedication to her family-attending sporting events and band concerts, planning family trips, and volunteering her time on numerous occasions for her kids' school activities and as a member of the Worthington Presbyterian Church. Joni loved to spend time conversing with family and close friends. An empathetic and kind soul, she always made every person she met feel welcomed and appreciated. She was an avid sports fan of the Buckeyes and all Cleveland teams, and she thoroughly enjoyed hosting large get-togethers for such events. Joni is survived by and will be greatly missed by her loving husband, Kent Hofacre; children, Matthew (Ashley) Hofacre, Kyle Hofacre, and Emily Hofacre; siblings, Janice (Larry) Goldberg, Randy (Cathy) Kiser, and Kirby (Sandi) Kiser; and several nieces, nephews, and close family friends.
