Harry and Catherine were married for 62 years.  Kay was active in the women’s fellowship group at the Church as well as many other church activities she enjoyed with Harry and her sons.

Bogart and his companion, Dixie, Raymond Bogart and his companion, Julie, and Michael Bogart, all of Granville; two sisters, Carrie Marcelle Diget of Batavia, N.Y., and Beatrice Roberts of Granville, in addition to six grandchildren, two great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

Other special friends of Kay’s that the family would like to acknowledge are Bill and Evelyn Jones, Elizabeth Close Thompson, Rev. and Mrs. Lester Vier. And last, but far from least, Kay’s best friend Fran and her husband, Ray Hayes. They shared a special bond their entire married life, starting with sharing their honeymoon trip.
