Jeannette Bogert, RN
Jeannette E. Bogert passed away peacefully on August 17, 2014. She was born in Chicago, IL on November 16, 1919, the second of five daughters born to Albert B. and Ethel O. (Linderoth) Bolinder. She was a 1937 graduate of Teaneck High School in Teaneck, NJ, and a 1941 graduate of the Hackensack Hospital School of Nursing.
On September 16, 1942, she married Carlton B. Bogert in the parsonage of the First Baptist Church in Hackensack, NJ. Their two children, Susan Jeanne Allen (Donald), and William Bolinder Bogert (Natalie) survive her, as well as two grandchildren, Justin Jeanne Allen, PhD., (Mark C. Bushnell, her fiancé’) and Dade Logan Allen.
Also surviving are two sisters, Alice Hannibal of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Phyllis Dunning of Cooperstown, as well as many nieces and nephews. Her sisters, Dorothy Powelson of Duarte, CA, and Gladys Hoch of Saddle River, NJ predeceased her. Her husband passed away on October 9, 1979.
During WWII, Jeanne worked as a nurse at several Army bases around the country as she traveled with her husband who was a member of the Army Air Corps. She also did industrial nursing and later cared for patients in their homes as a private duty nurse.
After moving from Hackensack to Ridgewood, NJ in 1959, she spent several years as a terrific stay-at-home mom before returning to nursing in the employ of Dr. Christopher T. Reilly. She later worked for Dr. John Reilly, Dr. Chris’ brother, only retiring when Dr. John moved his practice to New Hampshire. She remained a resident of Ridgewood nearly all her life.
In her spare time Jeanne enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, gardening, sewing, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, and above all, spoiling her family. Jeanne was a model of old-fashioned thoughtfulness and selflessness. She never had a mean word to say about anyone, and she was a friend to everyone she met. She is deeply loved and missed.
Viewing will be from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014. Her funeral will be held on Friday, Aug. 22, 2014, at 1 p.m. Both services will take place at the CC Van Emburgh Funeral Home at 306 E. Ridgewood Avenue, Ridgewood, NJ 07450.
