Constance “Connie” Ann Hogan of St. Petersburg, Florida passed away peacefully in her home on Friday, July 30th, 2021 at the age of 84.
Born and raised in Washington DC, she attended National Cathedral School for Girls and graduated from Sidwell Friends School in 1954. After high school, she moved to Florida where she spent her entire adult life. She was a graduate of the University of South Florida.
Connie embraced the Florida lifestyle wholeheartedly. An avid boater as a youngster, she cruised the Chesapeake Bay in her own boat in the 1940’s. She shared her knowledge and love of boating and water activities with her kids. She taught them how to have a healthy respect for the Gulf, swim safely in the pool, water ski, and water disc (her dog Sam enjoyed being pulled behind the boat on the disc as well!) She always lived on the water and made sure she had a swimming pool for herself and others to enjoy.
Connie was a life-long learner, enjoyed gardening and loved animals. Her menagerie included birds, cats, and dogs. Connie embraced technology as she enjoyed many things on her devices, including Minesweeper and “Words with Friends” where she won 2,370 games! Hands down, she was smart as a whip. She preferred the simple activities of life, and was up for adventures. She was generous with her time, spirit, and her home. Connie was authentic and never turned away a stray animal. She enjoyed her work as a technician at the Community Blood Bank, and later as a real estate, business, and stock investor. She loved everything about baseball, played basketball in college, and would always win the “Longest Women's Drive” competition in golf tournaments she entered. Above all else, she loved being Mom.
Connie is preceded in death by her parents, Consuelo Young Truscott, Christian Heurich, Jr., her two sisters and one brother. She is survived by her brother, Gary Heurich of Essex, NY; her four children: Kirk Bogue (Margot); Kim Bogue, K. Mark Bogue (Sarah Michaud) and Holly Gall (David); her five grandchildren: Lauren Bogue Mackey, Kelsey Bogue, Jay H. Trull, Christian Gall and Moon Gall; and several dozen nieces and nephews. Her pet family, which includes three cats, one canary, one parrot and a dozen finches, are all finding new, loving families. Connie will be missed by many loved ones and will greet all of her furry friends at the Rainbow Bridge.
