Helen Laura Yanik McConnel Hoff was born to Paul (Pawel) and Eva (Ewa) Yanik (Swoboda) in Wisła, Silesia (it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the time; currently it is in Poland).

She came to southern Idaho in 1914 with her mother and brother Carl Boyce, first to Pocatello and then to Boise. Around 1915-16 she was adopted by Sam and Aura McConnel of Boise, whose only child had recently passed away.

She graduated from Boise High School in 1924, and the University of Idaho in 1928. She was a school teacher, and was active in the Methodist church and Gamma Phi Beta sorority.

In June of 1932 she married Irvin A. Hoff in Boise, ID. They had two children before they divorced in 1944. She then taught school in Donnelly, McCall, and Boise.

Memorials may be made to the Helen M. Hoff Memorial Fund, c/o Gamma Phi Beta at the University of Idaho.
