HOGAN 1922 – 2009 Mrs. Margaret Frances Hogan passed away peacefully at the Red Deer Regional Hospital, on Saturday, March 14, 2009. Margaret was born on July 11, 1922 at Cupar, Saskatchewan. After completing high school, she went on to Teacher's College. While teaching in Calgary, she met and married Al Hogan. During Al's career in the Air Force Margaret had the opportunity to teach at schools spanning across Western Canada. She balanced her career while lovingly raising a family. The final stage of her teaching days was spent at River Glen School in Red Deer. After retirement, Margaret enjoyed travelling, knitting, crocheting, cross-stitching and spending time with her grandchildren. Recently, Margaret became a resident of Victoria Park Retirement Home where she thoroughly enjoyed participating in daily events and making new friends.

She is survived by a brother, Doug (Sheila) Root of Cupar, Saskatchewan, her loving children, Mike (Lee) Hogan of Calgary, Wendy Hovland of Oklahoma City, and Barbara (Richard) Holmes of Red Deer; her three grandchildren Brett Cormier, Elise Cormier and Jennifer Hovland; and her two-great grandchildren Ryder and Skylar Hovland.
