Berdina Hogan, 95 years of age, died November 27, 2016 at the Hospice Cottage in Worthington. Berdina Elizabeth Hogan was born to Rudolph and Caroline (Hecht) Baumgard on a farm in Ewington Township on August 21, 1921. Her family moved to a farm near Brewster in 1931 and Berdina graduated from Brewster High School in 1939. Berdina was baptized and confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church in Brewster, MN. Berdina was united in marriage with Harold Hogan in Wildwood, NJ on July 9, 1943 in a double wedding with Jack and Elinor Griffith.

Berdina was an active member of St. Matthews Lutheran Church where she served on the Altar Guild and as a delegate for Lutheran Women’s Missionary League.
