Spouse: M. Neal Hogan
I began my college education in 1959 at The University of Georgia where I joined Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. I finished with a BA in English and Secondary Education at Lynchburg College, in Lynchburg Virginia. I retired in 1996 after teaching for 30 years in the Fulton County School System.
My husband Neal and I have been married 39 great years. Our son Billy and his wife have one son Patrick who is a musician.
50 years - How time flies!
I belong to Alpha Delta Kappa honorary educational sorority for which I served as President and attended many International conventions.
I have enjoyed playing contract and duplicate bridge. I enjoy reading and now have time to fulfill this pleasure. Music and piano have always been a precious part of my life and I was blessed to have had a duet partner who was a dear friend.
Neal and I have always been active in our church, serving as officers and singing in the choir.
We have enjoyed our travels to various places stateside plus visits to England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Alaska, Hawaii, Bermuda, the Abaco chain in the Bahamas, and numerous cruises that took us to Mexico, Panama Canal, Grand Cayman Island and Costa Rica.
I am looking forward to seeing our wonderful class of '59!
Marifree and Neal (husband)
