REVA LENORE (LEENDERTS) HOFF was born to Abel and Rakie (Mulder) Leenderts on September 8, 1927 on a farm near Ellsworth, Minnesota. A short time later she moved with her family to a farm in the Midland area of Lyon County, Iowa. Here she was raised on the farm and attended country school through the eighth grade. In 1946, she moved with her parents to a farm north of Steen, Minnesota. On December 19, 1950 Reva was united in marriage to Cornelius Hoff at the church parsonage in Steen. Following their marriage the couple moved to a farm in the Pleasant View area of Rock County, Minnesota, where they raised their four children. They farmed the land for 40 years before retiring and moving to Luverne, Minnesota in 1989. On May 23, 1995 Cornelius died after having been blessed with 44 wonderful years of marriage. Reva remained in their home until she moved to Tuff Memorial Home in Hills, Minnesota. Reva found a new spark for life while living at Tuff and was very active with her social clubs, along with her sidekick Fran. The two were rarely apart, and involved with as many activities as possible, while also trying to help and serve those around them. When Reva’s health declined, she was transferred to the Sunset Hospice Cottage in Worthington, Minnesota where, on July 3, 2022, she went to be with her Lord and Savior at the age of 94 years, 9 months, and 25 days.

Reva was a member of the American Reformed Church in Luverne. She enjoyed embroidering towels, taking walks, reading, caring for her lawn and flowers, and having coffee with her friends. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren as they were the joy of her life. Her family was very important in her life.

Reva is lovingly remembered by her two children, Roger (Lisa) Hoff of Steen, and Sharon (Tim) Knoll of Brandon, South Dakota; eight grandchildren, Shelly (Mark) Ahlschlager of Hardwick, Minnesota, Chad (Darcy) Hoff of Luverne, Jeremy Hoff and Nicole Johnson of Steen, Ryan (Alyssa) Hoff of Luverne, and Nicole (Karic) Wiertzema of Hills, Lindsey (Seth) Miller of Granite Bay, California, Brittany (Erich) Hartwig of Shakopee, Minnesota, and Payton Knoll of Brandon; great-grandchildren, Dylan, Marshal, Logan, Dawson, Lydia, Conley, Noah, Aspen, William, and Lukas; sister, Henrietta Hughes of Portsmouth, Iowa; brothers, Leonard (Delores) of Hills, and Harold (Torborg) Leenderts of Oslo, Norway; daughter-in-law, Tamie Hoff of Luverne; brother-in-laws Jerry (Mary) Hoff of Luverne, and Pete Hoff of Hills; and several nieces, nephews, and other family. She was preceded in death by her husband, Cornelius; daughter, Joyce Hoff; son, Verlyn Hoff; parents, Abel and Rakie; brothers Jim Leenderts, and Richard Leenderts and his wife Hendreen; two sister-in-laws, Lois Leenderts and Peggy Leenderts; and brother-in-law Alfred Hughes.
