EMMA ADELE BOGART, 93, passed away on Monday, March 23, 2009 at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, surrounded by her loving family.  

The Lord called Emma home and she has passed to her reward.  She lived her life filled with happiness, kindness, and love for all who knew her.  Her family will miss her comforting and loving ways at their time of need, but are sure that God has greeted her into his Heaven with open arms, to spend the rest of time in her new home. She was born on May 15, 1915 to Arthur and Willimeana Lomax in Brooklyn, NY.  She was brought to New Jersey at an early age when her family moved to Monmouth County.  She spent the following years in Red Bank area, but made short visits with her husband, Joseph, to their farm in Pennsylvania.  She and Joseph were married for 68 years.  They lived at their home in Florida from New Year’s Day until May 30th from 1976 to 1992.  She had many friends in Florida and spent her time there enjoying the warm weather and her favorite activities of swimming, water-skiing, boating, and shopping in local cities.  Emma was a member of the River Plaza Fire Co. Ladies Auxiliary in the 50’s and 60’s.  She loved to bowl.  She was a member of the WIBC Ladies Championship Team in 1975 and 1976, and received the WIBC Award for her big 4 strike and she was so thrilled. 

Emma was a devoted wife to her husband.  She was a wonderful mother to her two sons and had them down to her home in Florida as often as time permitted.   She is survived by her husband, Joseph V. Bogart; her sons, Joseph C. Bogart and Barbara J. Bogart, and Robert L. Bogart and his wife Margaret A. Bogart; her grandsons, Joseph and Jeffery Bogart; and two great granddaughters, Clara and Molly Bogart.

Visitation will be held at the Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St., Red Bank on Thursday, March 26, from 11:00 AM-12:00 PM, with a service at 12:00 PM.  Interment will follow at Fair View Cemetery in Middletown.
