Dorothy Virginia Hogston

July 19, 1945 — November 6, 2022



Dorothy “Nan” Virginia Hogston, 77, of Abingdon, VA went to be with the Lord on November 6th, 2022 at Johnson City Medical Center with her family by her side.

Dorothy was born July 19th, 1945 in Chilhowie, VA to Leon and Martha (Childress) Dean. On December 6th, 1963, she married the love of her life, Roger. Together, they devoted their lives to their family and took great joy in raising their daughters and granddaughters. To know Dorothy was to love her. She was a friend to all, and to all, a friend. She loved camping at Riverside Campground, playing cards, games, and most of all, cooking. Her self-proclaimed “biggest” joy was spoiling her first great granddaughter, Sophia.
