In loving memory of

Louise Bombay
May 13, 1933 - April 2, 2021

OLD BRIDGE - LOUISE (MORALES) BOMBAY passed away on Friday, April 2, 2021, at the Center for Hope Hospice in Elizabeth. She was 87 years old.

Born in Manhattan, NY, she resided in Old Bridge, NJ since 1964.

Prior to retiring in 1979, Louise was a statistical typist for Bankers Trust on Wall Street, NY, for five years and then became a nurse's aide for Emery Manor Nursing Home in Matawan, NJ for 8 years.

Louise was a member of Sayre Woods Bible Church, Old Bridge, for 38 years.

She was predeceased by her husband, Arnold, on July 5, 1998, and her youngest sister, Mary Kosmoski.

Surviving are her two children, Deborah Louise Wiedman and her husband, Eric, of Old Bridge, NJ, and Stephen Arnold Bombay and his wife, Hope, of Southampton, NJ; two sisters, Lily Thier and Esther Bombay; three grandchildren, Blake Wiedman and his wife, Angela, Ross Wiedman and his wife, Chrisie, and Devin Bombay and his wife, Lex, and five great-grandchildren, Christian, Victoria, Selena, Ayden and Dylan.

Seventeen years previous to her death, she fell head-over-heels in love with Stanley L. Hupert. They became fast friends as they were both helping a mutual friend in their 90's. Since Louise and Stanley were both "Givers of Love", it was only natural that they would treat each other likewise! Their platonic love was supremely expressed through their mutual interests in road trips, live musical concerts, dining, watching TV, bringing gifts to the grandkids and great-grandkids, and thrift shopping for high end clothing items! This was a MUST since Louise was a devoted artist and could not let a day go by without expressing it on her favorite canvas, her own body. Her second-favorite canvas was Stanley, OF COURSE! If he was going to be her cohort of adventure, they must become Mr. & Mrs. Fashionista! ("feminine" because she was going to take the lead in this area!) Love-struck Stanley would laugh heartily and enjoy himself immensely in following His Sweetheart's expertise. He would daily praise her beauty and affirm his fullness of joy in sharing his latter years of life with her. Sadly, her Beloved Stanley, predeceased her on May 4, 2020 at 92 years old. What A Love Story! Many people they met throughout their adventures, will remember them as the most In-Love, Fashion-Forward, Adorable-Couple they had ever met!

Family and friends may visit on Saturday, April 10, 2021, at The BRUNSWICK MEMORIAL HOME, 454 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick, NJ, where a wake will be held from 8:30 am - 9:30 am and a service from 9:30 am - 11:00 am.

"I sat next to Louise every Sunday at Sayrewoods Bible Church. Years later I became crazy friends with my bestest friend Deb. Not knowing The 2 were related until years later. Debbie is spectacular as is Eric. Louise did a great job raising Godly people. I cabt say I knew b er I knew of her through Debbie. Rip sweet Louise and Stanley. "

"I met Louse 23 years ago when I started to attend SWBC . I knew her as Debbie?s mom. She was so meticulously dressed and soft-spoken even before her medical issues made her voice even softer. She just left an impression as a kind Gentalwoman she made me think of my long departed mom in the days when everyone ?dressed? to go places. Whenever we spoke she was kind. I remember Debbie escorting her mom to SWBC event and one day a man just as meticulously dressed as Louise walked in escorting Louise to her seat at church and sitting with her. To see the two of them together you just knew that their is love real love in the December years. And that was the first time I met her beau Stanly. They were so perfectly matched for each other about the same height and size dressed in their Sunday best all the time. Stanley always was attentive to Louise always escorting her to church to dinners totally a Gentleman. Though I don?t know for sure where Stanly stood in his faith I have a great hope for him. And I know some day I will see Louise again at the great homecoming. Thank you Louise for always reminding me of what it would?ve been like had my momma got to be a beautiful senior gentle woman. Enjoy your time in heaven well and I?ll get to see you there someday. "

"She was a very kind and sweet, Christian woman. This photo of her is "the class act woman" she was. She loved her Jesus and loved talking about Him to everyone. I missed her when she left the senior apartments, but one day I WILL see her again!!"

"Who was Louise Bombay to me? My aunt, the elder sister of my mom, who also was married to my father's brother. As a child, my parents were missionaries in other foreign countries, and because of this we were away from our family for up to 4 years at a time. Aunt Louise, always wanted to make us feel at home when we came back to the states. Many times she took time after working a full shift at a nursing home to take my sister and I out with our cousins Debbie and Steve to the beach, and after that to Friendly's ice cream for a sundae or banana split. As we grew, she wanted to share the things she loved by taking us to the libraries for free jazz concerts, and to local plays. The first movie I saw "The End" a comedy was with her. As I went off to college in Missouri, and when I came home for the holidays driving, it didn't matter the time of the night, the door was open waiting for me, and a sandwich on the table. Years later I moved to Florida, and became an over the road truck driver, I made sure that I always had the NJ run, this way I could see my parents, my uncle and aunts. One day aunt Louise said "I want to go with you to Florida in your truck" and she did, it was an adventure for her, and the fun we had together. As time passed my dad passed away two years after my uncle Arnold passed away. Aunt Louise each and every time she went to the cemetery where her parents and husband are buried, she made sure that flowers were also placed at my father's head stone. She always said to me "Timmy" I know you can't be here, but I did it for you. I tried to come to New Jersey every two years to see her and my family, and in the later years, every time I saw her I knew our time was short. You always was a fighter, right to the end, a proud and beautiful woman, you always wanted to know "why". You were loving and kind especially to me. I won't be able to be there to say good bye, I want to remember you as you are, and the memories you gave through out my life. Your nephew "Timmy" as you always called me Timothy Bombay"
