AUBURN — Edith Bogart, 84, of Auburn, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, Feb. 8, 2019, surrounded by her family.
She was the daughter of the late Clinton and Mildred Thompson Smith, life residents of Levanna, N.Y. As a very young girl, Edith drove trucks for the family-owned milk hauling business. She worked for P&C Markets and retired from Welch Allyn where she was employed 19 years. Edith was a very active member of the United Church of Auburn, volunteered at City Hall and Westminster Manor, and was a past member of the Scipio Chapter Order of the Eastern Star. Edie and her husband were well-known in Auburn as “The Walkers” as they would be seen enjoying a four-mile walk every morning and afternoon throughout the city.
She is survived by sons, Ronald (Doreen) Pullen, and Roger (Pamela) Pullen; two stepdaughters, Debra (Gary) Saville, and Lisa (Timothy) Corfield; nine grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild and another on the way.
In addition to her parents, Edith was predeceased by her husband, Rev. Wesley Bogart; two brothers, Arthur and James Smith, and a stepdaughter, Penny Fay.
Visitation will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019, at the Brew Funeral Home, 48 South St., Auburn, with a service to immediately follow. Burial will be in Fleming Rural Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, Edith has requested contributions may be made to Alzheimer’s Association, 441 W. Kirkpatrick St., Syracuse, NY 13204, American Cancer Society, 6725 Lyons St., East Syracuse, NY 13057, or United Church of Auburn, 77 Metcalf Drive, Auburn, NY 13021.
