Obituary for Elaine M. Brogan

Elaine M Brogan, 69, of Branchburg, NJ died on Saturday November 17, 2018. Elaine was born in Brockton, Massachusetts on August 26, 1949. She grew up in Hebron, Connecticut and attended both Quinnipiac College and the University of New Haven. Elaine briefly resided in New Haven, Connecticut, and then New Brunswick, New Jersey before moving to Branchburg, New Jersey in 1977.

Elaine worked as a school bus driver for the Branchburg Board of Education and a transportation supervisor for the Bridgewater Board of Education before retiring in 2015. In 2006, Thomas Bus Company awarded her as Children’s Choice School Bus Driver of the Year. Her love for her work was fueled by her love for all of the children that she drove each day and over the years.

Elaine was a woman of many skills and hobbies which included sewing, gardening, woodcarving, knitting, painting, miniature books, and tending to her champion Irish setter dogs.

Her husband Jim and her children; Keith Brogan and his wife Nathalie of Branchburg, Katy Bakunas and her husband Kevin of Branchburg, survive Elaine. Additionally, she is survived by her brothers Thomas Hovey and his wife Claudia of Chicago, IL, Paul Hovey and his wife Christine of Hebron, CT, Steven Hovey and his wife Sue of West Hartford, CT, and David Hovey of Hebron, CT, and her sister Teresa Hovey-Hussey and her husband Brett of Manchester, CT. Her grandchildren Alexander James, Charlotte James, Elizabeth James, and Ryan Joseph were the love of her life and brought her the greatest of joy each day.
