Marianne Vogt

Tinton Falls - On January 12, 2018, Marianne Vogt died peacefully in her sleep. She was born in Zurich, Switzerland on August 19, 1920. Her father Deonese Uhland and mother Martha Vogel were German citizens where Marianne was raised for most of her younger years. At some time in her early twenties, she caught the eye of a German scientist--her late husband Gottfreid Vogt who was immediately captivated by her beauty, intelligence and poise. After their marriage, they had two sons, Stefan and sadly--her deceased son--Andrew. Eventually the U.S. Army contacted her husband who had patents in radar and offered him a position at Fort Monmouth where he spent the remainder of his career.

Marianne was a master seemstress and although she did not need to work she became a supervisor at Avalar Dress Manufacturer in Long Branch; producing hand made dresses and gowns. She could make a man's suit in one day. In addition, another expertise was her cooking, going to dinner at her home was an experience money couldn't buy; and she didn't own a cookbook. In Lincroft, where they lived, she grew magnificent flowers and once an artist stopped by to ask permission to paint her garden. Marianne loved to sing, dance and travel.

Born to a non-religious family she was never Baptized. Seven years ago, while hospitalized, a priest stopped by her room. She said, "Come here young man, would you Baptize me." he was a little taken back, she insisted saying, "It's now or never."

I teased her saying, "So, you found Jesus at ninety years old?"

She responded, "No, Jesus found me."

Marianne is survived by her son Stefan and wife also Marianne in Georgetown, Texas and their three children: Aaron, Melissa, and Shawn. In addition four great- grandchildren. Also survived by myself, her daughter-in-law Sally and my two children: Andrew and Sharon who adored her. They shared many happy times with her and were truly dedicated to her.

Our family would like to express our gratitude to Arbor Terrace Assisted Living for the compassionate care she received over the past five years. Also a special thanks to the care provided by Homeside Hospice--all such dedicated professionals.

Marianne was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. She will forever be remembered for her kind heart, sense of humor, and purity.

A Memorial Service and celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
