Obituary of Sheila Bogart
Sheila Diane Bogart, age 71, of Poughkeepsie, passed away on March 7, 2022 after a long battle with
It would be wrong to say that Sheila lost her battle because she never once stopped fighting. No matter
how sick she was, she was always determined. When anyone else would have broken, Sheila stayed
strong. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. There was no quit in
Sheila. Just because she is no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight.
Sheila was born on December 7, 1950 to the late Earl and Lillian Dedrick in Poughkeepsie, NY. In 1969,
Sheila married the love of her life, Carl Eugene Bogart Jr.
Sheila was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She is survived by her husband
Carl, her son Brent Bogart and his wife Heather, her daughter RaeAnne Nocera and her husband Jeff,
and her son Matthew Bogart and his wife Tina. She is also survived by her 7 grandchildren, Tyler Nocera,
Dylan Nocera, Nathaniel Bogart, Amanda Bogart, Hannah Bogart, Cameron Bogart, Nicholas Bogart and
her great granddaughter Mia Nocera.
Sheila’s passion for photography made her a routine fixture in the Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery. Sheila
would frequent the cemetery grounds to photograph the beautiful wildlife, river views and to capture
the transitions between the gorgeous seasons.
Sheila will be honored at a later date with a celebration of her life.
