Gertrude E. Pomart (nee Edge) passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at the age of 98. She was born in Peekskill on December 27, 1921 to J. Edward Edge and Lillian (Kennedy) Edge. She was a graduate of The Guardian(Assumption) School, Peekskill High School and Wilfred Beauty Academy in NYC. Gert married John J. Pomart on March 2, 1947 at the Assumption Church, Peekskill. He predeceased her on November 25, 1994. She worked in beauty shops, retail stores and at Fleishman's(Standard Brands) in all departments until she started her family.
