Catherine Elizabeth (Shaw) Bogart, 84


 Catherine Elizabeth (Shaw) Bogart, wife of Harry J. Bogart, passed away on Friday, March 28, 2008 at her Granville residence following a long illness.
Catherine was born on April 3, 1923 in Whitehall, the daughter of the late Egbert (Ed) and Bertha (Parker) Shaw. Bertha passed away when Catherine was very young and she was raised by her stepmother, Stella (Ballentine) Shaw. Catherine would have celebrated her 85th birthday this year.
Catherine worked for over 20 years in production for David Sheridan and his growing catheter business. When Kay first started, she worked at the red barn, then moved to Sheridan Catheter and finally at Mallinckrodt.
Kay and her late husband, Harry Bogart, were faithful members of the Granville Baptist Church. 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. Kay was fond of the long walks she took with her good friend and neighbor Phyllis Davies. Kay was a wonderful Mom. She enjoyed baking, with her specialties being angel food cake, rolls and molasses cookies.
Catherine is predeceased by her parents, her husband Harry Bogart and a brother Franklyn Shaw. Survivors are her sons: Allen J. 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. Also a special mention of Kay’s special family members; a sister-in-law, Irene Bogart, a nephew, Earl Shaw , his wife, Liz, of Salem and a niece, Loretta Vanelli and her husband, Don, George and Barbara Bogart, Teresa Bogart, Edith and Amos Sorel, and Dorothy Dixon. 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.
A funeral to celebrate Catherine’s life was held on March 31 at the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St. Granville with the Rev. James Peterson officiating. Friends called at the funeral home on Monday before the funeral service. Burial will be at a later date in Mettowee Cemetery in Granville.
