Mary Hogan, 87

Master seamstress with sharp wit

Mary Hogan (née Gleason), 87, died peacefully in the presence of loved ones on June 17, 2022. A Minnesota native with nine siblings, she moved to Chicago in 1956 after marrying her husband, the late John E. Hogan. She will be remembered as a master seamstress with sharp wit, for her generosity and astute guidance, as the life of the party no matter the occasion, and as a consummate matriarch of her family (both blood-related and chosen).

Mary was the mother of Kenneth E. (Roberta) Hogan, Karen (Frank S.) Dylewski, Tim (Mary) Hogan, and John F. Hogan; grandmother of Kenneth R. (Colleen) Hogan, Frank G. Dylewski, Diana (Max) Puente, Jessica (Anthony) Girardi, and Emily Hogan; and great-grandmother of Connor Hogan, Liam Hogan, and Niccolo Puente. She filled a quintessential “grandma” role for many throughout her life.
