Dr.  Andrew Bolmann Obituary
DR. ANDREW BOLMANN, 75, OF POTTSTOWN Dr. Andrew Bolmann, 75, of Pottstown, PA passed away on Sunday, March 30, 2014. Dr. Bolmann was born in the countryside in Plebanka, Poland in 1938. He and his family were forced to flee across Europe as World War II displaced them, and they immigrated to the United States in 1949. He was granted U.S. citizenship in 1957. After graduating from medical school at the University of Montreal with a specialty in psychiatry, Dr. Bolmann was a resident physician at Bellevue Hospital in New York City. He then served two years in the U.S. Army Medical Corps at Valley Forge General Hospital in Phoenixville, PA and was honorably discharged with the rank of major in 1971. After his military service, Dr. Bolmann established a private psychiatry practice in Pottstown in 1971, which he operated for over 42 years. He served as the Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at Pottstown Memorial Medical Center from 1986 to 1996, and was the President of the Medical Staff at Progressions of Lafayette Hill (formerly Eugenia Hospital) from 1986 to 1987. He also practiced psychiatry at other local facilities, including most recently Salisbury Behavioral Health in Pottstown, and Alternatives Consulting Enterprises and Progressions in Reading, PA. Dr. Bolmann was a widower for 10 years after the passing of his wife Mary Ellen (Ference) Bolmann and was predeceased by his son Andrew. He is survived by his daughter Jean Hansen and her husband, his sister Sophia Fritscher and her husband, his nephew Carl Fritscher, and his grandson Jack Hansen. Friends wishing to pay their respects to Dr. Bolmann are invited to visit the Warker-Troutman Funeral Home at 726 East High Street in Pottstown, PA between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Saturday, April 12. A memorial service will be conducted starting at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to the Animal Rescue League of Berks County or an animal shelter of their choice.
