Priscilla E. Hogan

LATHAM — Priscilla E. Hogan, a registered nurse, was a skilled seamstress who owned her own bridal shop, but most of all liked to be with her children and great-grandchildren.

She died on Thursday, May 5, 2016 at Albany Medical Center after a traffic accident in Guilderland. She was 84.

Born in Ossining, New York on Oct. 29, 1931, she was the daughter of the late John and Regina (née Bombard) Morgan. She graduated from Hudson Falls High School in 1949 and St. Peter's School of Nursing in 1952. She married Edward "Joe" J. Hogan on Aug. 25, 1956; their marriage of 59 years ended only with her death.

At one time, Mrs. Hogan was a registered nurse employed with St. Peter's Hospital, Glens Falls Hospital, and Albany County Nursing Home. As a skilled seamstress, she then owned her own bridal dress shop in Latham for a number of years.

The Hogans, for the past 26 years, spent many winters in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. They also enjoyed visiting the many National Parks across the country.

Mrs. Hogan had a special group of friends with whom she played bridge, and she enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, knitting, and painting. But most of all she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.


In addition to her beloved husband, Joe, she is survived by her loving children: John Hogan and Michele Hurd of California, Mary O'Brien and her husband, Marty, of Latham, Jim Hogan and his wife, Kathleen, of Vermont, and Matt Hogan and his wife, Katie, of Georgia, as well as her eight cherished grandchildren: Amber Hogan, Brendan and Patrick O'Brien, Katie and Chris, Molly, Brian and Jackie Hogan; and her two adored great-grandchildren: Jayden and Giselle Hogan; and several nieces and nephews.

Visitation and a Mass of Christian Burial will be at a time to be announced. Arrangements are by Dufresne & Cavanaugh Funeral Home of Latham.

Interment will take place in Saratoga National Cemetery in Schuylerville.
