Hogan – Patricia
With great sadness we wish to announce the passing of our mother and grandmother Patricia Hogan (nee: Dafoe) on May 18, 2006. Patty was born in Vancouver on March 17, 1927 and spent her formative years in Coronation and earned the Lt. Governor’s award for scholarship in Grade 12 and went on to take nursing at the University of Alberta, graduating in 1948. She and her life long friend Alma Keenan moved to Niagara Falls for work but returned home to Alberta. She worked in the Provincial Hospital in Ponoka then as site nurse at the Petro Chemical Plant. In 1955 she married Jim Hogan and settled in the west end of Edmonton where they raised their five children. Later Pat worked at the Charle’s Campsell Hospital and the Mewburn Veterans Home. She and Jim retired in the mid 80s to Comox, BC to enjoy the milder climate. In 2002 Jim passed away and Pat moved back to Edmonton to live with her daughter. Patricia will be greatly missed by her five children and three grandchildren: Tim (Carol, Shannon and Patrick) in Calgary, Dan (Sherry and Thomas) in Charlottetown, Kevin and Kathy in Edmonton and Michael in Vancouver and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Jim in 2002, mother Olive Dafoe (nee: Baxter) in 1996, father Ora Dafoe in 1955 and sister Mary Gilchrist in 1980. The Hogan family would like to thank niece Elaine and her husband Hart Chapelle for their support as well as the nurses of the CCU and the Medicine Ward (7E) of the Misericordia Hospital. There will be no service by Pat’s request and a private internment will occur later. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, NWT & Nunavut, 100-119 14th Street NW Calgary, Alberta T2N 1Z6.
