Ester
February 7,1920 - May 31,2015

MESSAGE FROM THE FAMILY SERVICE INFO

 

In Celebration of the Life of Ester Mae Hogan

 

Ester and Effie Harvey’s daughter.  Devoted wife. Mommie. Sister. Trusted friend. Auntie. Hairstylist. Problem solver. Grannie. Good neighbor. 

These are all words that describe Ester Hogan. Ester left a legacy that will long be remembered by her loving children, close-knit family and faithful friends.

On May 31, 2015, Ester left us and went to her eternal home. The place that she has been dreaming, singing and shouting about. Oh, what a day of rejoicing. In fact, we all imagine the "Hallelujahs" coming from the angels as Ester left here and strolled right into eternity. No more aches and pains. Her head held high. Grinning from ear to ear. 

In 95 years, Ester had seen and done a lot. Born on February 7, 1920, Ester was named after her father. She was proud to have grown up in Kilgore, TX where she lived with her family. Her parents raised their eight children to love God and love each other. After attending elementary and high school in her hometown, she later moved to Houston, TX where she graduated from cosmetology school and worked as a hairstylist.

Ester married Young W. Hogan on June 11, 1944.  Leaving Houston in 1947, the couple moved to Los Angeles, CA. They were married for 48 years. The secret to their long-time partnership: loving God and each other and working together as a team. Her husband took care of food shopping for the family, from making weekly grocery lists to cutting out coupons. From hot water cornbread to collard greens to apple pie, Ester stayed busy in the kitchen, making home-cooked meals for her family and friends. 

The two shared a love for traveling. Their love for adventure and different cultures led them to pack their bags and take a trip to Japan and Thailand.  From Caribbean cruises to New England fall foliage tours to sightseeing in New York and Canada, they enjoyed a good adventure.  

The couple joined Community Lutheran Church in 1960 and served on many boards and participated in church activities. As chairperson of the Altar Guild, Ester was responsible for displaying the altar linens for the communion services and creating commemorative banners for the church’s milestone celebrations.  

After her beloved husband’s passing in 1992, Ester continued to be active in her church and community. Her greatest joy was watching her children and grandchildren raise their own families.

Ester’s greatest attributes: her honesty and candor. Ester always said it like it was. You always knew where you stood with her. And she had a saying that fit every occasion. Some were her wit and wisdom. Others passed down to her over the years. When she thought you needed a word of encouragement: "It's a poor dog that won't wag his own tale." After saying her goodbyes, she would always leave you with this reminder: “Be good to yourself.”

We will all miss Ester, Mommie, Grannie, Auntie. But we take comfort that she is with her Creator and she is at peace. We are grateful for her life and legacy. She lived life to the fullness. As we gather today, although we will miss being with her, we want to celebrate her life – a life that she lived to the fullest. Her zest for life was evident. She always wanted to be present at family functions whether it was graduations, holiday dinners or family gatherings.

Ester’s memory will always be with us, and her legacy will continue through her children and extended family. Ester leaves to cherish her memories her children and their spouses: Paula and Edward Tucker of Bakersfield, CA; Eric and Linda Hogan of Lawrenceville, NJ; Mudiwa and Ayokunle Odeleye of Stone Mountain, GA; and Ronald and Suzette Hogan of Riverside, CA; Barbara and Charles Rhodes of Oakland, CA (Barbara preceded her in death); 15 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren; 1 great great-grandchildren; and a host of relatives, extended family and friends.
