February 7, 1933 - September 25, 2020
Maurice Scott Hoggard, 87 passed away on September 25, 2020. She was born on February 7, 1933 in Hertford County, NC to the late Cecil and Lucy Scott. She married George Robert Hoggard on June 7th 1952, and shortly thereafter moved to New York. Fondly known as “Recia”, she will be remembered as an avid gardener, decorator and cook. She spent countless hours in her flower garden and loved to decorate her home and yard for the holidays. Family and friends looked forward to her home cooked meals and especially her homemade chocolate cake which was well loved by her children and grandsons. Recia was employed by TIAA-CREF as a payroll specialist and retired in 1987 to travel and spend more time with loved ones. She took special care of her “beloved” husband Robert before his passing in 2004, and was a devoted wife and mother. While living at her home in Greensboro, her caregivers showed her as much love as if she was their mother. She moved to Huntersville in June 2020 and was blessed to be cared for by the staff at Special Touch Residential Living until her death. Survivors include her daughter, Wanda Davis and husband Tommy of Cornelius; son, Darren Hoggard of Jamaica, NY; sister, Shirley Shepherd of Newport News, Virginia; grandsons DJ, Ryan and Marcus of Charlotte, NC and sister-in-law Mildred Harrell of Ahoskie, NC and Joyce Scott of Flushing, NY. She is also survived by a host of nieces and nephews. A funeral service will be held at noon on Thursday, October 1 at James Funeral Home. Visitation will be 11:00 AM prior.
