Josephine Wermuth Bohac peacefully entered into rest on Sunday, August 11, 2019, at the Pines of Poughkeepsie, she was 92 years old.
Daughter of the late Alyosius & Mae Wermuth, she was the youngest of 5 siblings who all predeceased her.

On November 17, 1946, she married the love of her life, John Bohac, Jr., at Nativity Church in Poughkeepsie, NY. Mr. Bohac predeceased her on February 15, 2001.

For over 20 years Josephine worked at St. Mary's School in Poughkeepsie: Poughkeepsie Middle School and Nassau Road School in the cafeteria as the cook. She prepared meals for hundreds of children every day and then would come home and make a wonderful meal for her family each night.

Josephine was an active member of the Nativity and St. Martin de Porres parishes. She volunteered for Meals on Wheels and was an active member of Club 60.

She loved the holidays, especially Christmas. People came to visit each year for her homemade goodies. There was always food and anyone would tell you she made a meal from leftovers.

This tree is a living tribute to a glorious friend who taught us how to be good neighbors. Jo Bohac taught us that neighbors are friends who willingly share their knowledge, give neighbors that borrowed cup of sugar, share holidays with everyone in the neighborhood, and clap madly when the children next door perform a show in the backyard. Lastly, good neighbors are family. Jo was our “stand-in” mom and grandmother; she shared so much and expected nothing in return.

To the family. Jeannine and I offer our deepest heartfelt condolences. Josephine Bohac who was Ma Bo to me was like a second mom to me. I’ve known her and the family for 50+ years. She was a kind and caring person and we shared many good times and some sad times together. I remember the vacations on Lake Bomoseen in Vermont, the holidays and parties at the house, etc. Most of all I remember Ma Bo always smiling, laughing, baking or cooking and watching out for her boys. I will cherish the memories and never forget my Ma Bo.

With Love, Joey
