Leota Faye Hogan, 83, was born March 16, 1937 in Phoenix, Arizona to the late Sammy and Nellie Hernandez. Her employment history included time with the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Phoenix, San Carlos Irrigation Project in Coolidge and the Gila River Indian Community.

She was a breast cancer survivor and lived her life to the fullest. During her lifetime, she was an avid player of basketball, softball and bowling. She spent a lot of time enjoying rodeos although she never participated.

Leota’s greatest joys in life were her family, both immediate and extended. She was always the life of the party and liked nothing better than to spend time with her family eating, laughing and enjoying each other’s company.

Since her retirement, she was able to attend the Senior Center in Coolidge where she quickly made friends and was able to socialize as much as she wanted. But her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren, bestie Nellena, pride and joy Jaden and her precious great- granddaughter Alivia.

Leota is survived by her two daughters, Marie ( Ron) Jordan and Lisa White. Her grandchildren, Nellena Jordan and Jaden ( Jasmine) Vidal and great- granddaughter Alivia Aurelia Vidal. Two Sisters, Florence Gates, Esther ( Courtney) Moyah and numerous nieces, nephews and great- nieces and nephews.

Leota will be greatly missed but her legacy will live on through her families memories and stories oh her that will last forever.
