Mary was born on Feb. 9, 1921 in Lennep, Meagher County, Montana. She was the oldest of five children born to Olaf and Margaret (Gaustad) Engen. Mary grew up and received her early education in Lennep and graduated from the Ringling High School in 1939. While attending school in Ringling, she met her future husband. Her additional education was received at business schools in Great Falls and Butte. On January 9, 1943, Mary was united in marriage to Thomas Y. Hogg in Missoula. During WWII, while her husband was with the U. S. Army Air Forces, Mary was employed by Boeing in Seattle and Pacific Metals in Los Angeles. After the war, she returned to Montana and worked as a First National Park Bank bookkeeper in Livingston for decades. In 1974, Mrs. Hogg had become a widow and remained so the rest of her life. Mary retired from the bank in 1982, and then went to work for her sons at Tom’s Jewelers, a business she and her husband had founded in 1966. She was employed there until age 87, when her eyesight prevented her from working any longer.
