Ann Elizabeth (Simonds) Hogan, passed away peacefully, at the Woburn Nursing Center, among-st her wonderful family, Saturday morning, May 19th, 2018.  The beloved wife of the late Daniel J. Hogan Sr., Ann was eighty-nine years of age.

A life long Woburn resident , Ann was born to the late George E. and Mildred E. (Toomey) Simonds at the Choate Memorial Hospital in Woburn.

Raised in the South End of Woburn, Ann was one of eight Simonds children.  Attending both St. Charles Elementary and St. Charles High School, she graduated there along with the Class of 1946.  Throughout those high school years, Ann could be found working at the “Bell Shop,” a store of fine ladies apparel in Woburn Center.

After high school, Ann began working at the Telephone Company where she had remained for several years.  During which time she had met Dan Hogan, and then became reacquainted at a Barn Dance in Woburn.  Being fabulous dancers, both of them, they danced through that first night and several years later becoming husband and wife, they continued dancing for a little over the next sixty three years together, sixty of which were in the central square section of the city.

Bringing six children into the world certainly kept Ann quite busy!  Actively involved in all the comings and goings; academia, sports and family, were all high priorities in the Hogan household. Summers as the children were growing and right up to present day, Seabrook was the destination for all family summer outings and over the years, some truly,  very happy memories were made. 

Once children were all in school, Ann worked part time at the Woburn Rehab. She was also a volunteer at the Wyman School Library, Boy Scouts, Woburn Fireman’s Wives Association,  and if there was any need from any organization or club, Ann would always find the time.

Dan and Ann had the wonderful good fortune of travelling to Barbados every year for almost two weeks for over thirty years.  When they were there they were treated like family, and had established some wonderful friendships there.  For close to fifteen years they vacationed in South Carolina with some of Ann’s brothers and sisters, always taking time to visit with their sister, Nancy who had been stationed in the South with the Sisters of Notre Dame.

For close to 50 years, the Simonds family and their spouses played cards every Friday night; just recently deciding to stop for a bit.  When Ann was not with her immediate family or siblings, she remained very close to her dear friends that she grew up and went to school with.  They were always there for each other throughout the years.

Over the last several years, after selling their home in Central Square, Ann and her children decided that it would be best for her to live two weeks at a time, with each child and their families.  They all thought this would be best, and for Ann it turned out to be one of the best experiences of her life.  It gave her the opportunity to share some very special time with her children, son or daughter in laws, grandchildren and great grandchildren!  The daily interaction with them all, was ever so special with each and every one especially Ann.

A very loving, honest and faith filled woman, Ann was all about family throughout her lifetime and will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. 

Sadly, Ann is predeceased by her parents, her husband, Daniel J. Hogan and her dear husband’s family, Ann was predeceased by her dear husband’s family, Sr. Barbara Hogan OFM, Grace L. Hogan and Richard Hogan.

She is lovingly survived by her children, Daniel J Hogan Jr. and his wife Michelle of Barnstable, Janice Severance and her husband Clyde of Reading, Barbara Cann and her husband Chuck of N. Reading, Alicia Goode and her husband Brian of N. Hampton, NH, Brian Hogan and his wife Julie of Billerica and Joanne Ferreira of Wilmington, seventeen very special grandchildren and her siblings, George Simonds and his wife Helen, Jean Courtney and her late husband Bill, Anne Simonds and her late husband Bob, Ronald Simonds and his partner Raoul Ajamil, Sr. Nancy Simonds, SND, Jean Simonds and her late husband Tom all of Woburn and Jim Simonds and his wife Judy of ME. Ann is also lovingly survived by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins and loyal friends.
