Elvia Bogues Obituary

   Mrs. Elvia Jean Bogues of Campbellsville passed from this life on Monday, June 25, 2018 at the Green Hill Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Greensburg. Born in Columbia to the late Hobert and Hyacinth (Rigney) Pyles on February 11, 1934, she was 84 years, 4 months, and 14 days of age. After the untimely death of her mother, Mrs. Bogues was loved and raised by her grandparents, James B. and Retta Mae Pyles. She was a veteran of the United States Navy, having served her country honorably during the Korean Conflict. She was a loyal, generous, and loving woman, and rightfully proud of her service to her country, her family, and her God.

   One brother: Hobert “Sonny” Pyles of Danville,

   One sister: Doris Pyles Casey of Indiana,

   Special cousins and friends: Debbie Benningfield, Gerry Cunitz, Margaret Pyles, Carol Sue Bohannon, and Shelia Bryant,

   And a host of other close cousins, nieces, nephews, and other family and friends.

   She was also preceded in death by her husband, Marshall James Bogues in 1977; two sisters, Margie Pyles Johnson and Mary Pyles Smith; five aunts, Claris Pyles, Bonnie Pyles, Altha Pyles, Clara Pyles, and Lyla Pyles; and nine uncles, Finis Pyles, Vitis Pyles, Rollin Pyles, Kenneth Pyles, Robert Pyles, Aaron Pyles, Walter Pyles, James Pyles, and Howard Pyles.
