Elizabeth J. Bauder
July 21, 2018
Elizabeth (Betty) Jane (Bogensperger) Bauder, 83, of Syracuse passed away Saturday at the Jewish Home at Menorah Park. She was born on December 5, 1934 in Syracuse to Anna (Banuski) and Nicholas Bogensperger, graduated from North High School, and was employed at Carrier Corporation as a secretary. On September 25, 1959 she wed Carl J. Bauder and started their life's journey together on Roxbury Rd. in Eastwood. They had three children, Sue Ann (Ronald) Archibee, of Sandy Creek, Lisa Marie (Rob) Ganley, of Syracuse, Carl Stephen (Maria) Bauder, of Cazenovia. Betty was predeceased by her daughter Lisa in 2008. They have seven grandchildren, Christopher (Ralph Elwell), Benjamin (Katrina), Casey, Daniel, Carl Richard, Joshua and Julia. They have one great granddaughter Zoe Elwell and another great granddaughter due in October.
Betty was active in Beta Sigma Phi Sorority in her early years and returned to work as a secretary at Blessed Sacrament School for a short time. She loved to travel, but also enjoyed spending time at camp in Truxton or McCavanaugh Pond, especially if she could host a gathering. Her love of cooking created many memorable events from which no one left hungry. She was a loyal and trusted friend to those around her, devoted wife, mother, grandmother and aunt. Until her last days, Betty had a warm hug and welcoming smile to share with those around her.
A celebration of Betty's life will be held on Wednesday July 25 from 4-7 PM at Gang Memorial Chapel. Mass will be at Blessed Sacrament Church on Thursday at 10 AM. Betty's family requests that you please make a donation in her name to your favorite charity in lieu of sending flowers.
