Barbara Joan Gogan passed away October 14, 2020, just five days shy of her 98th birthday after a difficult battle with dementia. Born and raised in Boston’s Mission Hill neighborhood, she married Tom Gogan and (after WWII ended), they resided in Cohasset MA and New Canaan CT before moving to St. Louis MO.

They retired to Chatham, MA in 1986. They enjoyed traveling, playing golf and bridge, spending time with their cherished friends, and hosting many wonderful family gatherings in Chatham. Barbara and Tom were married for more than 50 years (Tom passed away in October 2002).

Survivors include Thomas F. Jr. (Gloria Brandman) of Brooklyn NY, Richard H. of Fraser CO, Janis L. (Ashok Rao) of Cambridge MA, Edward B. of St. Louis MO, Martha Lane (Drew) of Quincy MA, and Lisa A. Brockway of Plymouth MA. Barbara was “Gigi” to seven grandchildren – Madeline and Sarah Brockway, Jenna Gogan, Andrew and Molly Lane, Christopher and Heidi Manschreck (David Berger) – and two great-grands, Noah and Sasha Berger.

Barbara will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne MA. Due to the complications of COVID-19, the burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages well-wishers to make donations in her memory to the Alzheimer's Association or the American Cancer Society.
