Mary Jane Bogoger of Broomfield, Colorado, formerly of Cuba, was born Friday, September 26, 1941 at Cuba, Missouri to the union of Alexander Manson and Hazel (Nee: Brand) Munro and left from this life on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at her home in Broomfield, Colorado at the age of 76 years. Growing up on her family's farm, she spent most of her childhood in Cuba. As a sophomore in high school, she went to live with her sister in Springfield, MO. She graduated from Parkview High School in 1959 and attended Southwest Missouri State (now known as Missouri State) in Springfield, graduating in 3 years with a degree in Mathematics. After college, she went on to work for McDonnell (McDonnell Douglas) in St. Louis, where she worked on the Mercury and Gemini space programs. In 1969, she moved to the California Bay area to work at Lockheed Martin. While working there she met her husband, Richard Neil Bogoger, and they welcomed a son, Mark, in May of 1974. After several years of running her own Technical Writing business from home, she ended her career with LSI Logic, where she was the head of Technical Writing. She retired in 2002, at the age of 60, after recovering from breast cancer treatment. In the years following her retirement, Mary Jane enjoyed playing tennis, going to the theater, traveling with her sister, whale watching in Maui, singing in her church choir, and cheering on the Golden State Warriors. But her greatest joy was spending time with her son and two grand-daughters, who live in Colorado. In February 2018, she moved to Broomfield, Colorado to be closer to them and spent her final months enjoying movie nights, dinners and quality time with her family. She is preceded in death by her parents Alexander and Hazel Munro, husband Richard Bogoger and other family and friends. Those who are left to treasure her memory and to continue her legacy are her son Mark and wife Ana Bogoger, two granddaughters; Kate and Sabrina all of Colorado, one brother, Rudy and wife Rhonda Munro of Cuba, one sister Wanda Henry of Springfield, Missouri, nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of other relatives and friends.
