Hoggarth-BrownMary Jean Hoggarth-Brown

Jean was the first of five children born to Benjamin and Lyda Hoggarth of Maltby, Washington. She attended grade school in Maltby and graduated from Snohomish High School in 1942.
During WWII Jean worked at the Boeing plants in Renton and Everett where she was a riveter on both B-17 and B-29 bombers. Jean ended her wartime career as a lead mechanic. Jean was very proud of her accomplishments there and would frequently point out the areas of the two planes she and her crew built.
After the war Jean was employed at Sportcasters clothing where she became an excellent seamstress making-up patterns for newly designed sportswear styles. Using her mechanical abilities and sewing creativity years later she worked part time selling and repairing sewing machines. In her spare time Jean enjoyed sewing clothes for family members, oil painting and cooking.
In 1950 Jean accepted her toughest job, that of a Navy “WIFE,” making homes in Norfolk VA, Great Lakes IL, Newport RI, Caracas Venezuela, Long Beach CA, and finally in the Pacific Northwest.
Jean is survived by her husband, Ralph Olin Brown, three children, Marc, Beverly Phillips, and Mitchell, and two grandchildren, Erin and Samantha.
Private family services and internment were provided by Miller-Woodlawn Cemetery, Bremerton WA. Donations to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America in lieu of flowers would be greatly appreciated.
