MARY HOGAN


Photo By:

June 23, 1917 – April 15, 2013

Mary Hogan, a Los Altos resident since 1945, passed away peacefully on April 15, 2013 at the age of 95.

Mary Ann Marlowe was born on June 23, 1917, a fourth generation San Franciscan. She was raised in Honolulu until her high school years. Her family returned to San Francisco in 1931, and there she graduated from St. Peters High School and San Francisco City College. Mary worked for the Bank of America until the outbreak of the war in the Pacific in 1941. She was selected for service by the Women’s Air Raid Defense of the Hawaiian Islands at Pearl Harbor. There she met Navy Lieutenant John Hogan, a Palo Alto native and a Stanford engineering graduate, whom she married on Feb. 17, 1945 at Old St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco. They settled in Los Altos where they raised four children.

Mary was committed to volunteerism, serving as a scout leader and a member of the Stanford Hospital Auxiliary for twenty-five years, where she managed volunteers for the North ICU heart transplant unit. Widely recognized for her irrepressible Irish humor, she was an avid reader and an accomplished skier and tennis player who loved the outdoors, spending many happy hours in Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Carmel and Hawaii. She was passionate about her garden and her pets.

Mary was preceded in death by her husband John, who died June 21, 1986, and their daughter Elizabeth, who died in infancy in 1955; older brother Robert Marlowe, and twin sister Helen Stockberger. She is survived by her son John Hogan (Cindia) of Los Alamos, NM; daughters Christine Hogan of Los Altos, Molly Hogan-Graham of Carson City, NV, and Ann Wilson (Jim) of Palo Alto; and grandchildren Molly Hogan of Los Alamos, NM; and John and Geoffrey Wilson of Palo Alto.

A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at Saint Nicholas Catholic Church, 473 Lincoln Avenue, Los Altos, on Saturday April 27 at 1:00 PM. Reception will follow.
