Eva passed away on Friday, October 24, 2014 at her home at Riverview Place in Fargo, under the care of Hospice of the Red River Valley.


Eva was born on December 21, 1922 in McHenry, ND, to Joseph and Pauline Hogan. The family moved to Carrington when she was a young child. She attended grade school and graduated from Carrington High School in 1940. Eva entered Nurses’ Training at St. John’s Hospital School of Nursing in Fargo in 1941. She graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1944 and began working at St. John’s Hospital in Fargo, and the Carrington Hospital for a few years. Eva worked at the Twin Cities Hospitals for many years.


Eva was an active member of the Catholic Daughters of America and the Legion of Mary in Minneapolis, the Twin Cities Nurses’ Association, and the Audubon Society. She also enjoyed concerts, hiking, bird watching, biking, traveling, reading and volunteering.


Those who lived with and appreciated Eva will cherish her gentle and kind manner. Every person was important to her. She aimed to bring peace and joy, faithfully remembering relatives and friends on their special days with gifts, greeting cards, or phone calls. As a caregiver in her retirement years, Eva continued her warm care and concern in her service to others.


Eva is survived by eight nephews and nieces – James (Rose) Hogan of Aurora, CO; Shirley (William) Kuebler of Apple Valley, MN; Thomas Stern of Fargo; Roger (Marcia) Bresnahan of Hot Springs, AR; Robert (Beverly) Bresnahan of Dover, DE; Colleen (Irvin) Rios of Sacramento, CA; Patricia Akins of Rancho Palos Verdes, CA; and Mary (George) Saunders of Great Falls, MT; and many great nieces and nephews.


Eva was preceded in death by her parents; her siblings – William Hogan, John Hogan, Fr. James Hogan, Loretta Stern, Florence Hogan, Susanne Bresnahan, Sr. Mary Kathleen Hogan, and Margaret Hogan.


The family would like to extend a special thank you to Riverview Place, Crosshaven, Hospice of the Red River Valley, and Elder Care Staff, and to Tom Stern for their loving care to Eva.


Memorials are preferred to Hospice of the Red River Valley.

Memories Timeline


  1. Boise IdahoIt is interesting that Eva passed away at the exact same time of year as both of her sisters…They always stuck together.
    I recently talked with Eva on the phone. I told her that Sr. Mary Kathleen will have a big party planned-complete with games and music- to welcome her into heaven. Eva chuckled at that. She also wanted to hear all about our son’s wedding. She and her sisters were dear friends to our family for many years. I will miss my conversations with Eva, but find immense joy in thinking of her reunited with her beloved family whom she missed so much.

    Eva, we will pray for your swift entrance into heaven. Give Margaret and Sr. MaryKathleen a hug from us!

  2. Moorhead MN
    Eva was a neighbor of mine in the NE corner at Briarpointe. I loved stopping by to visit her. Near the main entrance, nothing escaped her watchful eye. My favorite memory was when my son and I were getting ready to take our camper on a trip through the Rocky Mountains, Eva came running out the door, waiving for us to stop. I rolled down my window and Eva gave us a ten dollar bill and said, “Stop somewhere special and have a treat on me!”

    Eva made ordinary days special to all she faithfully gave her attention.

  3. How interesting that Eva passed away at the same time of year as both of her sisters did…..Those three always stuck together. I would talk with Eva about the party Sr. Mary Kathleen would have prepared for her when she joined them in heaven- complete with games and music! Eva would chuckle at that. I last spoke to Eva two weeks ago on the phone. She was very interested in hearing about our son’s wedding. Her friendship has been a blessing to our family for many years. Although I will dearly miss my phone calls with Eva, it fills me with joy to imagine her reunited with her beloved sisters and family- and the festive celebrating they will have!
    Give Sister and Margaret a hug for me, Eva!
    We love you and will pray for your swift entrance into heaven~ Linda and Family
