Margaret J. "Midge" Hohman (nee Logan), of Ambler, passed away on April 23, 2008. She was 90 years old. Midge was born in Turtle Creek, PA in 1917, the third of nine "oh-so-loved" children of Rev. Dr. William A. and Elsie May Logan. She was the wife of the late A. Charles Hohman and was the loving mother of Dr. William Hohman and his wife Elisabeth of Landenberg, Mary Daye Hohman of Ambler and Helen Joan Hohman of Lower Gwynedd. She was the devoted grandmother to Eric Hohman and his wife Melissa of Wilmington, Johan Hohman and his wife Allison of Newark, William Hohman of Landenberg, J.T. Farrell of San Francisco, and Amy Farrell of Baltimore. She is also survived by her beloved sister Mary Davis and her husband James Davis, M.D. of York, PA and many dear nieces and nephews.
Midge attended Union High School in Turtle Creek, graduating in 1935. She was a graduate of Gettysburg College in 1939 and pursued her Master of Library Science degree at Carnegie Mellon. She continued her graduate studies in education at The University of Pittsburgh, Temple University, and Columbia University. Her professional library career encompassed service to school, county and public libraries across Pennsylvania and included the establishment of the Montgomery County Bookmobile Library and the Upper Dublin High School Library. At Upper Dublin High School she sponsored a language study program for American students to attend the University of Innsbruck, Austria.
Midge grew up in a parsonage and, as a result, was easily able to become a part of a number of Lutheran congregations in Pittsburgh and suburban Philadelphia areas. She introduced Curtis Institute soloists to one of the congregation's Sunday services. Throughout her life Midge encouraged her grandchildren's educational endeavors with "book scholarships." She also personally found joy in playing the piano and listening to her favorite vocalists.
Services and interment were private.
