Edith Mae Pranskunas was born on August 1, 1930 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to George and Magdelene Pranskunas. She graduated from Prairieburg High School and attended Upper Iowa University, where she received her teaching certificate. She married Jerome Hogarty on July 12, 1952 in Prairieburg, Iowa. They moved to Iowa City in 1958, where they raised their four children.

Edith taught fourth grade, then left teaching to start their family. During the years that followed, she worked at various part-time jobs as well as earning her realtor’s license. She was a natural organizer and displayed a talent for decorating using simple elegance. Family could always go to her to find a creative solution in every corner of life. By working at the Lark Restaurant, Seaton’s Grocery, Lakeview Apartments, Partner Realty, and Hy-Vee bakery, Edith would say you learn something from every job you have. She loved spending time on her porch visiting with family and friends. She was known for being welcoming to everyone. Her family was her world.

Edith is survived by her children, Annette (Bill) Dane of Urbandale, Joe (Jo) Hogarty of North Liberty, Janis (Brian) Andrade of Lee's Summit, Missouri, Emily (Ron) Hobbs of Overland Park, Kansas; nine grandchildren, Dennis (Shannon) Dane, Ellen (Chris) Young, Cathy (Joe) Mochal, Kristy (Will) Nebergall, Sean, Brooke and Courtney Martin, Kyle and Quinten Hobbs; eight great grandchildren, Ryan, Natalie and Audrey Dane, Miles, Rocco and Autumn Young, Lexi and George Mochal and Taylor Andrade.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry in 2004; parents and both sisters Emma and Dorothy Pranskunas, as well as grandson Anthony Andrade.
