Joyce Hogan is up dancing in Heaven, organizing and probably helping somebody get dressed for a play! She is one of the finest women that Andy and I have ever known.
We loved Joyce and we love her family!

Miss Hogan was a legendary figure in most of our lives at St Pius. I don't know how she did what she did. I know she preferred sports, but here she was leading all the little St Pius pep squad and teaching us routines for the Bowl Game. T-I-G-E-R-S !!! She arranged tryouts, she got uniforms... the logistics are actually amazing. This one lady could do it all and do it well. She had a good wicked sense of humor, which she passed on to her children. Whenever I would see Joyce Hogan I would think, "here comes fun!" Miss Hogan was the creator of good memories... God Bless and peace to her family members.

A truly great lady with a huge heart for the BL community. Fond memories of her working the bookstore, making costumes for those of us in Blackfriars...seems like she was always there at the school back in the 80's - only a small slice of her actual involvement I'm sure. May she hear these blessed words of the Father: "Well done, good and faithful servant".

Requiescat in pace

Mrs. Hogan was always willing to help. She had a strict demeanor at times, but always interjected a dry wit. I remember her smile and especially her laugh. Joyce was the epitome of BL.
