Mary Ann Hogan, 84, departed this life on January 16, 2019 at Pomperaug Woods, Southbury, CT. She was the beloved wife of William Hogan. Mary Ann was born in Chicago, IL on October 27, 1934 to the late James and Marion (Seraponas) Wallace.
Chicago was her home town. She grew up there and attended all her schooling including the secretarial school at Depaul University. Upon graduation she was hired by a firm of hotel representatives handling business reservations for many hotels in the United States, Bermuda, and the Bahamas. After working in Chicago for a year, she was transferred to Cleveland. She found her interest was more in sales so she moved to New York City where she lived at the Barbizon Hotel with her friend Jean Hoffman. Shortly after she arrived in New York, she went on a blind date and met her husband-to-be, an orthodontist practicing in New Canaan, CT. They married in 1956 and moved to Ridgefield, CT.
