Nyla Bogart Lindgren, 83, of Conneaut OH, passed away October 3, 2020 at UH Conneaut Medical Center. She was born June 11, 1937 and was the daughter of Archie Bogart and Rose (Milliman) Rogers.
Nyla graduated from Conneaut High School in 1955. After marrying and starting her family, Nyla moved to Burbank, California. While in California she started her career in banking and worked her way up the corporate ladder becoming a Loan Officer and then one of the first women Branch Managers for Bank of America. In 1992 Nyla moved back to Conneaut and began her most rewarding career, working for Ashtabula County Residential Services where she was the Dietary Manager for Maples One, the men's home. One would frequently hear her say she sure "loved her guys". In addition to her position, Nyla proudly sat on the Board of Directors for Ashtabula County Residential Services. Nyla had a loving heart and a giving spirit, so giving back was important to her. She was an active volunteer for Special Olympics where she served as Secretary/Treasurer and coached track for many years. Special Olympics was near and dear to her heart. Nyla was a member of the Woman's Club of Ashtabula County. She was also a member of the Red Hats Society where she made many friends and enjoyed social events and traveling with them. Nyla was an active member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church where she could be found folding weekly bulletins and baking Nisu bread.
Survivors include her husband George Lindgren, whom she married in So Lake Tahoe, CA, July 16, 2009; her sons Jeff Wells of Bullhead City, AZ, and Greg (Donna) Wells of Carson City, NV; and her daughter Renae Wells (David) Cunningham of Monrovia, CA.
