INEZ BOGAN was born on January 31, 1931 in New Orleans, LA to Erskin and Mattie Taylor. As an only daughter, she was raised along with her four brothers. Inez accepted Christ at a young age and was baptized in New Orleans, where she also received her formal education. Growing up in a working family, Inez contributed financial support to the family household as a teenager.
In 1949, at the age of eighteen, Inez married the love of her life and life time partner, John L. Bogan of the United States Navy. They lived in several states along the east coast compliments of the U.S. Navy. In 1962, the family relocated to San Diego, CA, where they purchased their lifetime home.
Inez worked several jobs in San Diego before making her life-long career at UCSD University as a Custodial Engineer. Inez retired in 1989, and she certainly enjoyed her retirement.
Inez’s greatest joy was the birth of her two children, Connie and Karl. She all ways wanted the best for her children and was all ways there for them through their good and bad times. She enjoyed cooking. Her favorite dishes were Louisiana Gumbo and Pineapple Pudding Cake. Whenever friends and family gathered, it was a must that she bakes her Pineapple Pudding Cake.
She was preceded in death by her parents; four siblings and her grandson, Jermaine Salmond.
On Saturday, May 23, 2020. Inez Bogan was called from earthly labor to eternal rest. She leaves to cherish her memory two children, Connie and Karl; daughter-in-law, Chevelle Bogan; stepson, John Bogan and his wife Ruthe; three great-grandchildren, Rikiya, Johnathon and Jermaine Salmond Jr.; daughter-in-law, Kiwata Johnson and many other relatives.
