Ruth D. Bohmaker, 82,

                  

Whitehall: Ruth D. “Grammie” Bohmaker, 82, formerly of Whitehall, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Wednesday, September 5th at Glens Falls Hospital.

Born on March 6, 1925 in Whitehall, she was the daughter of the late Reeves D. And Theresa M. (Jones) Hupman.

Ruth was a 1942 graduate of Whitehall High School.  She enlisted in the Cadet Nurse Corps in January 1944 and later graduated from Brooklyn State Hospital in 1947.

She worked as a registered nurse at Glens Falls Hospital and then for Dr. Thomas Hulsebosch until her retirement in 1990.  She shared a wonderful life with her husband, Robert F. Bohmaker from 1947 until he passed away in 1985.

Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren and she always made sure that their happiness came first.  She also enjoyed the friendships she made during her brief stays at Stichman Towers and the Stanton Residence Facility.  She was a communicant of Our Lady of Hope Church and was active in church affairs and the local Senior Citizen’s organization.

She is predeceased by her parents, her husband, Robert and her sister, Charlotte Rehm.

She is survived by her daughter, Theresa Gauci and her husband, Steven of Whitehall and her son, Robert Bohmaker and his wife, Gretchen of Queensbury, her loving grandchildren, Alicia, Tressa and Emily Gauci, Erin and AJ Bohmaker; brother, Reeves D. “Pal” Hupman, Jr. and his wife, Shirley of Troy and several nieces and nephews.  She leaves behind many dear and cherished friends in Whitehall and wherever she called home.

A Mass of Christian Burial was conducted on Saturday, September 8, 2007 at 9:30 AM at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church in Whitehall with Rev. Michael Flannery, Pastor, officiating.  Internment will follow at Greenmount Cemetery in Whitehall.

In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested that expressions of sympathy may be made in Ruth’s name to Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, 9 Wheeler Avenue, Whitehall, NY 12887 or an organization of one’s choice.
