Marie F. Rogan
(September 5, 1948 – January 10, 2018)
Sad news to report from Linda (Schuster) Mazur, BHS '66, who just heard from Rick Rogan, BHS '73, that his sister passed away last week. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers...
Maria Rogan passed away peacefully, with her son Wil and his wife Tiffany by her side, due to complications from Alzheimer’s disease.
Maria was born in Burbank, California, the third of six children of Richard and Mary Rogan. Maria graduated from Burbank High, cruised on the Chapman “College Afloat”, earned her degree at U.C., Irvine, was a teacher in the Fullerton School District, and lived in Laguna Beach for years. She was a world traveler and had friends from around the globe: from New Zealand, to Ireland, to Connecticut, and throughout California, including her famous Laguna Beach girls’ softball team, and the “Too Much Fun Club.”
Maria is survived by her son Wil, and her five brothers: Patrick, Michael, Brian, Dennis, and Ricky, along with many nephews, nieces, and cousins who all loved Maria.
There will be a funeral at St. Catherine’s Catholic Church,1042 Temple Terrace, Laguna Beach, at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 27, 2018. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to make a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association, by going to: https://www.alz.org/

I am so sad to learn of Maria's illness and death. We were neighbors as kids and our parents were friends too. The 6 Rogans and 6 Nobiles all went to St Roberts for grammar school. I have such fond memories of their family. I pray she is resting in the arms of the angels. RIP old friend😢
