Lillian Kogan

Real estate executive

Lillian Kogan, a retired real estate executive and connoisseur of the arts, died Friday of complications from a stroke at the North Oaks Retirement Community in Pikesville. She was 91.

Mrs. Kogan, who was known as "Lilly," was a voracious reader who also enjoyed going to the ballet and symphony, relatives said.

A regular theatergoer, she often took her sons to the old Ford's Theater on Fayette Street in Baltimore.

She also liked to travel, and she visited many museums in Israel and Europe.

Born and educated in Brooklyn, N.Y., the former Lillian Helprin moved to Baltimore in 1923 to work for her brother, Joseph, who owned the J. A. Helprin Advertising Co.

She worked there as a secretary until 1928 when she and Louis Kogan were married. Mr. Kogan died in 1940.

In 1942, Mrs. Kogan established Kogan Realty, a company she ran until her retirement in the late 1970s. She was a longtime resident of Windsor Hills.

Mrs. Kogan was a member of Hadassah and had been active with Associated Jewish Charities for many years.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. today at the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation Cemetery, 2100 Belair Road.

Survivors include two sons, Dr. Stanley Kogan of Baltimore and Dr. Leonard Kogan of Potomac; and nine grandchildren.
