Wanda Hogan Hilton



Wanda Hogan Hilton, 72, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Monday, September 07, 2020 at Memorial Campus in Asheville.


Born in Catawba County on March 25, 1948, she was born to the late Perry William Hogan and Polly Cable Hogan.


Wanda worked for many years as a paralegal. She had a love for quilting, sewing, crafting, and tending to her flower garden. She enjoyed cooking and teaching others. Known as the rock of the family, she will certainly be missed by all who knew her.


She is survived by her two children, Crystal Hilton Padgett (Greg) and Gregory Lawing (Karen); four grandchildren, Carly Padgett, and Daisy, Gaia, and Naomi Lawing; three siblings, Randy Hogan, Angie Hogan, and Robin Hogan; two nieces, Wendy Harwood, Michelle McCraw; two nephews, Dominic Hogan, and Shawn Hogan; and many other special family members.


A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of Beam Funeral Service & Crematory with Mr. Don Cable speaking. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service, from 1:00 to 2:00.


Flowers are accepted; however, those wishing to make a memorial donation should consider a charity of one’s choice.

Mom was definitely crafty. All we had to do is tell her show her what we wanted and she would make it happen. Thank you for your kind words

I met Wanda through her friendship with my mom Carolyn and knew her to be so talented and creative. Always working on a project that turned out just right it seemed. She shared her tips and knowledge generously and will be deeply missed. Prayers for the family.

Wanda was such a dear friend and blessing to us when Donnie died. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her. Such a beautiful woman inside and out.

Prayers for the family. I hadn't seen Wanda for many years. She helped with some legal matters and I talked her into to going to our class reunion. She seem to have had a good time. I'm so sorry for your loss!
