Mrs. Mary Ellen Boggan, 85, of Georgiana, passed away on Monday in Hoover surrounded by her family. She was laid to rest on April 8.

Due to the current limitations on gatherings, a Memorial Service will be scheduled at a later date. The family asks that mourners leave memories and/or stories about Mary Ellen in our website at to be compiled into a Memory Book for her Memorial Service.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, John Daniel Boggan; sons Kenneth Eugene Boggan and Michael Jerry Boggan; and parents, Hiram Eugene Johnson and Mamie Lucille Hooks Johnson.

She taught school for 30+ years before retiring. She taught briefly at McKenzie School and primarily at R.L. Austin Elementary School in Georgiana.
