Renate (Bohmker) Woodard

June 17, 78,

This loving Angel we call Mom, has gone to a world without pain after a long and courageous battle with cancer, surrounded at home by her loving family.


Mrs. Renate was born in Germany on June 15, 1942 to the late Walter D. and Matilda Bruckner Bohmker.


She was an active member of the Family YMCA and will be fondly remembered for her marathon running and swimming. She was loved by all who knew her.


She was survived by her four children, Belinda Dail and husband, Roland of Goldsboro, Christine Forster and husband, Chris of Pierre South Dakota, Cathy Ellis of Pierre South Dakota and Lance Woodard and wife, Cindy of Goldsboro. A special daughter Vicki; twelve grandchildren, and fourteen great-grandchildren. A sister Anne, of Germany and a special dog friend Dune.


In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Arthur M. Woodard; one brother, Uve Bohmker and one great-grandson Kadyn Vanderloo.


She will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. The family will hold a private celebration of life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the Wounded Warriors Foundation, or the Goldsboro family YMCA.


The family is in the care of Howell Funeral Home & Crematory in Goldsboro.
