Obituary of Edith Julia Bogaert

Edith Julia Bogaert (Mozealous) of Essex, CT passed away December 5, 2021 surrounded by her family. Born April 6, 1931 to George and Edith Mozealous, she graduated from East Haven High School and soon after started her family with her husband of 48 years, John Bogaert. Whether she was baking, sewing, knitting, or taking her children and later her grandchildren for day trips, she was most content caring for family and friends, always with a song in her heart. She had an eye for elegant design that she shared while working at Outdoor Traders and later Ceramica; a gift she passed on to both of her daughters. Edith shared her amazing emotional wisdom with all that were in need, but was never one to interfere. She approached each day “looking up”, appreciating all that was good and gracefully accepted the tougher times. Her sense of humor never faltered. She adored her family and appreciated her friends, and although shy, she was always quick with a warm hug and smile. ‘Grammy’ or ‘Mimi’ as she was affectionately called, cherished her grandchildren; Will Bogaert (Laura), Julia Bogaert, Christopher Ritter, Katherine Keith (Duncan), Sarah Makowicki, and Tyler Makowicki. Edith was predeceased by her parents, her beloved brother and sister-in-law Frank and Bernice Mozealous, and her sisters Phyllis Adams and Margaret Faulkner. She is survived by her children, John Bogaert and his wife Marla of Essex, CT, Georgann Ritter and her husband Marc of Niantic, CT, and Kathleen Simmons and her husband Gary of Matlacha, FL. A private service in honor of Edith will be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries, PO. Box 804, Essex, CT 06426.
