Margaret "Maggie" Hogan Manning
Naples, FL - Margaret "Maggie" Hogan Manning departed for heaven surrounded by her family on April 17, 2022, following complications from emergency heart surgery. She was born on September 12, 1942, in Darby, Pa., to Walter M. and Hyacinth B. Hogan. With her sparkling eyes and bright smile, it is no surprise that she was a Parade and McCall's magazine cover model as a child. Spirited, clever and vivacious, Maggie was one of a kind and will be deeply missed. A lifelong devout Catholic, Maggie graduated from Villa Maria Academy High School and Immaculata University, where she earned a BA in Economics. As an eighth grader she caught the eye of classmate John Francis Manning, Jr., becoming his wife 10 years later while he was on weekend leave from Navy flight training. During their nearly 30-year naval aviation adventure, the always-energetic Maggie raised three children, was active in Navy wives' groups, earned an MBA from California Lutheran University, and perfected the art of cross-country moves during over 20 relocations. Maggie taught business at Gwynedd Mercy University after college and later at Hampton University, she then traveled the world working for the National Nuclear Security Administration. In retirement, she enjoyed golf, pickleball, and hosting family and friends at their Arlington, Va., Naples, Fla., and Duck, N.C., homes. Her quick wit and mischievous nature made for many memorable gatherings. Maggie is survived by her husband of 55 years CAPT John F. Manning, Jr., USN (Ret); children Tracy Manning Dillard (Kevin), John F. Manning III (Renee), Mary Manning Harkleroad (Jim); grandchildren Christopher and Thomas Dillard, Holly, Madison, and Lauren Manning, and Emily Harkleroad; her sister Kathleen Hogan Grafstrom, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and close friends.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St Agnes Catholic Church, 7775 Vanderbilt Beach Rd, Naples, FL 34120 on July 2, 2022, at 11:30 a.m. Internment will be at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research or St Agnes Catholic Church, Naples, Fla.
