Amy Hogan
September 29, 1940 – September 29, 2022
Amy Jo Ellen Hogan of San Francisco, California, was born on September 29, 1940 and passed away on September 29, 2022 at home surrounded by her five loving children. She never wanted to miss a party, so she joined her late husband Clayton Matthew Hogan in heaven to celebrate her 82nd birthday.
Funny, loyal, smart and beautiful inside and out, she is loved by many. Famous for her quirky one-liners and for not being outdone on the dance floor with her signature dance move, she will be sorely missed.
Amy was born in Vallejo, California, where her late father, Donald B. Brown, worked as an executive at the Hearst Corporation. Her late mother, Anne Brown, was an artist and homemaker to her and two siblings, sister Barbara Turcios (Robert) and late brother Donald B. Brown, Jr. (Pamela). After her father's sudden death when Amy was six, they moved to San Francisco. Amy attended St. Monica Elementary School and Star of the Sea High School in San Francisco. Amy met the love of her life, Clayton Matthew Hogan, in high school. They married early and had five loving children; Amy Weaver, Carrie Birkel, twin sons Clay Hogan (Barbara) and Sean Hogan (Karen) and Jennifer Hogan-Perlstein (Michael). Affectionately known as Gramy, she lit up any room with her bright and infectious smile. She is survived by nine grandchildren; Morgan (Andy), Samantha (Richard) and Cameron Weaver, Samantha (Zack) and Jacqueline Birkel, Stella and Angelica Hogan, Nicholas and Matteo Hogan and four great-grandchildren.
She dedicated her life to raising her five children and played an active role in supporting her family business, the San Francisco Plumbing Company. Amy loved being surrounded by her children and grandchildren. Her favorite activities included family dinners in Tahoe and spending time on her boat.
As they became empty nesters, Amy and Clay enjoyed traveling the world with their friends and family. Some of the best memories include card games and family dinners in Italy.
In her free time, she enjoyed listening to speakers at the Commonwealth Club, going to lunch and the theater in San Francisco with her dearest friends, and spending time with her companion Ronald Sligar.
She was a wonderful matriarch, mother, grandparent and family was her entire world. She will be greatly missed because to know her is to love her. The family will host a private celebration of life for Amy at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Amy's memory to Collabria Care in Napa.
