Billie D.Hogan – 12/26/2019

December 29th, 2019

Billie June (Dick) Hogan, 84, was born to the late Elizabeth Pauline (Howard) and William Willard Dick in her beloved Buhl (Boise) Idaho in June, 1935. Billie grew up with two sisters, Betty Jean and Patty Ann in a western region that remained a big part of her. She met Harold (Hal) Hogan Jr., married in February 1953 in Cheyenne, Wyoming and moved back to the Philadelphia area, where they settled in their new home in Boothwyn, PA (1959) and raised their family. Billie later relocated to Delaware where she worked and lived until 1993, when she moved to rural Elkton, MD. She loved her Maryland home and was very happy with her gardening and much-loved kitties.

Billie was a striking woman who loved her family. She is preceded in death by her parents, her in-laws Harold O. Hogan Sr. and Jean (Hamilton) Hogan, sibling Betty Dionne, her husband(s) Hal Hogan, and Jim Wilkinson. She is survived by daughters Debbie Smith (Jim), Janice Hartman (Terry), Andrea Finn (Patrick); six grandchildren-Jenifer Comegys, Thomas J. Smith, Timothy P. Smith, Alexandra Hartman, Kai Finn, Zoey Finn; 3 great grandchildren-Aidan Comegys, Kyler Rae and Sloane Smith; many nieces and nephews.

Visitation and burial will be private. The family wishes to thank Calvert Manor Nursing Home for their loving care over the last few years of Billie’s life. They also wish to thank Season’s Hospice for the personal, and very special attention they gave to her. In Lieu of flowers, donations in her name can be made to Lolas Landing Animal Rescue in Rising Sun MD (

    I met Billie at Calvert. I noted this beautiful women sitting at the dinner table and she had such a grace to her I walked right up to her and introduced myself. We were instantly friends. Billie was a ladies lady with a smart wit that was so charming. We laughed about men and all life’s scenarios. We talked about books and music lots of music. The places she had been. We talked about Buhl and the seasons there esp Spring. I appreciated her taking the time to be my friend. Rest in peace Billie. You are loved.

    I met Miss Billie while visiting my Grandmom at Calvert Manor. Over the last two years I’ve shared some wonderful conversations with her. She was always so sweet and kind to my Gram. She struck me as such an elegant woman. I will surely miss seeing her warm smile and her pleasant and witty conversations. My condolences to her daughters who she talked about frequently.

    I have fond memories of Linda Puskarich, Robyn Scott & I playing with Debbie in the rec room of the Hogans’ Boothwyn acres home as Mrs. Hogan ironed her uniform for work, not the least bit unnerved by our hilarity. She was one of the prettiest Moms I had ever seen, and had a sweet nature to go with her beauty. Her passing marks the end of the era of Baby Boomer Moms from our old neighborhood. My condolences to Debbie, Janice & Andrea and their families.
