Adaleen A. Hogan, 83, entered eternal life, Monday, May 25, 2020, at Sylvan Assisted Living in Jefferson, Wisconsin.
She was born April 30, 1937, in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, to Emma J. Hendrickson and John Howard Hogan, Sr. She moved to Marquette, Michigan as a youngster and attended schools there. After graduation from Graveraet High School, she relocated to Chicago with her mother. She found employment at Jackson Park Hospital in Chicago as the Administrative Assistant to the Nursing Director and remained there for 20 years. Adaleen recruited the intern nurses from Thailand and helped them to find housing and adjust to living in the United States. She maintained many friendships with them, even after leaving Jackson Park. In 1980, Adaleen moved back to Marquette to care for her ailing mother. In 1983 she returned to Chicago and attended Roosevelt University, where she received her Bachelor's Degree in Social Sciences. Upon graduation, she accepted a position with the State of Illinois Pollution Control Board as Administrative Associate and retired from there in 2002. Adaleen moved back to Marquette and purchased her brother's home there. She became an Auxiliary member of the American Legion Post 44. She was excited to participate in all their activities, especially serving as the Chairman of the annual Memorial Day Poppy Campaign for several years, during which sales were a huge success under her leadership. She was an avid reader, who loved to sew and cook. Dozens of Adaleen's famous Chicago Crunch cookies were enjoyed by family and friends. She was a loving and caring aunt, as well as a dedicated mentor and role model to her many nieces and nephews. Adaleen is survived by her sister, Dorothy (the late Charles) Weigel of Marquette, and brothers, Richard (Judy) Hogan, of Cape Coral, Florida, and Terry (the late Mary Ellen) Hogan of White Lake, Michigan. She was preceded in death by her siblings, Carol (the late Arthur) Huempfner, John Howard Hogan, Jr., and Marylou (the late William) King, all of Marquette; and dear sister-in-law, Delores (nee Anderson) Hogan of Midlothian.
