They then spent 15 years in Denton, Texas, where Mr. Hagan taught at University of North Texas; 25 years in Fredonia, N.Y., where he taught at SUNY Fredonia; and finally 24 years in Norman, where Mr. Hagan retired from teaching at University of Oklahoma. In 2010, they moved to Bedford, Texas, to be near their two sons.

She was the heart of the family and is sorely missed.
