Charlotte Trahin Bogard, one of Greers Ferry's earthbound angels, followed in her father's footsteps to the Lord Friday, December 21, 2012, after a truculent battle with cancer. As an active member of the volunteer EMS and Fire services, Mrs. Bogard touched many lives and was a true blessing to the community. Her infallible drive to help others will not be forgotten, and she will be remembered best as a loving servant to humankind.
She was preceded in death only by her father, Major General Jean Henry Trahin.
She is survived by her mother Leah Trahin; her husband Gary Bogard; and daughters Rebecca Robnett Sandoval and her husband Jeff, Leah Harper and her husband Courtland, and Helen Dunkerson and her husband Robert; as well as her grandchildren Enzo Sandoval, Ocie Sandoval, Brooke Harper, Ian Harper, Katelynn Dunkerson, Heidi Dunkerson, and Halle Dunkerson. Charlotte is also survived by other relatives and her many friends.
