Mass of Christian Burial
Obituary of Evelyn Ann Hogan
The death of Evelyn Ann (nee Esson) Hogan occurred on Monday, April 18th, 2022, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Evelyn was the daughter of the late Peter and Theresa (nee Ivory) Esson. She was born in Barnaby River, New Brunswick on October 19th, 1924.
Evelyn was a devout Roman Catholic and a dedicated educator. Her first teaching assignment was a one room schoolhouse in Renous, New Brunswick. Later, she became the first principal of Grandview Ave. Elementary School and completed her forty-seven-year career teaching grade two at St. Joseph’s School.
Evelyn and Eldon moved to Saint John and raised six children; Gloria (Andy) Maher, Patricia (Barry) Pond, Mary (Paul) Jacquart, Eldon, Wesley (Kellie) and Peter. In addition to her children she took great pride in her ten grandchildren; Dr. Erika Maher (Christopher Brown), Nicola Pond, Mary-Kate Pond (Stephen Cassidy), Adam Jacquart, Melissa Dempsey (Justin), Matthew Jacquart (Anna), Michael Hogan, Monica Hogan, Emily Hogan, Wesley Hogan and her four great grandchildren; Lennox Dempsey, Samuel Brown, Ivy Brown and Cole Cassidy.
Aside from her parents, Evelyn was predeceased by Eldon Hogan Sr., her son Peter, Frank Butler and nine siblings; Harold Esson, Helen Donovan, Hubert Esson, Irene Esson, Leighton Esson, Mary Grennan, Joseph Esson, Catherine Esson and Caramel Gill.
Evelyn’s door was always open to family and friends or anyone in need of a place to stay. In the last eight years of her life, as a resident of Hatfield Point, New Brunswick, she not only enjoyed the view of Belle Isle Bay but also the farm animals that would gather outside her patio door. Evelyn also had fun being chauffeured around by her son Eldon in their golf cart. She taught by example, loved unconditionally, inspired many and will be truly missed.
Evelyn’s family would like to extend a sincere thank you to Dr. Niazi, Dr. Chow, the staff of 5CN and the Palliative Care Unit at the Saint John Regional Hospital as well as the Sussex Extra-Mural Nurses for their dedication and compassion.
