Judy Lee Bogan Auman, of Bolivia, died Wednesday, April 22, 2015, at SECU Hospice House of Brunswick. She was 67.

A wonderful mother of three, a devoted daughter and a friend of many, but she was our best friend.

She was preceded in death by her father, the Rev. Robert C. Bogan and her sister, Quinette Bogan.

She expressed a selfless loving care for children. She was a teacher, mostly kindergarten and first grade, at Southport Elementary, Lincoln Primary and Bolivia Elementary. She was also a leader of the Parents as Teachers Program. While battling cancer, she furthered her education by earning her Master’s of Education in 2009 from UNCW.

Always thinking of others and putting family before self, she retired shortly after getting her degree because family duty called her to keep her twin grandchildren, Eli and Ava Hunt. She loved her church greatly and had many friends with the Lord. Her smile lit up a room, as she possessed a strong, quiet spirit. She was a lover of nature. She will be missed immensely, but how blessed are we who knew her as Mom, sister, daughter or friend. She is now with her father and baby sister. The scripture tells us that one day, we will all be together again. We love you, Mom.

Judy is survived by her mother, Gladys Bogan, of the home; children, Cassandra Auman Hunt, Larry Gene Auman and Andrew Calvin Auman and wife, Jenny Cocker Auman; brother, Robert C. Bogan Jr. and wife, Cathy Smith Bogan; and her pride and joy, twin grandchildren, Ava Carol and Elijah Bogan Hunt.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 24, 2015, at Peacock-Newnam & White Funeral Home in Southport. Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 25, 2015, at Sharon Memorial Park in Charlotte with Pastor Jeff Roberts officiating.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and SECU Hospice of Brunswick.

The family would like to say a special thank-you to Dr. Kenneth Kotz and his staff at Cape Fear Cancer Specialist.

Please leave online condolences for the family at Peacock-Newnam & White Funeral Home.
