The Albert Bommer and Goldie E. Bommer Charitable Foundation Fund
The Albert Bommer and Goldie E. Bommer Charitable Foundation Fund was established in 2006 by Goldie E. Bommer in memory of her husband Albert Bommer. The Fund was established to assist senior citizens in the Greater Cincinnati area. More specifically, the Fund makes grants to (1) projects, (2) programs and (3) equipment purchases, which especially benefit senior citizen members and/or residents of (1) churches and other religious organizations, (2) retirement homes, and (3) nursing facilities.
Albert Bommer’s family was originally from Cheviot, Ohio. Later, Albert bought land and a farm in Shandon, Ohio. He farmed most all his life and his love of farming was passed to his sons and grandsons, who are all farmers. In addition to produce, he had many farm animals. Albert encouraged his son, Roy, to work with calves and Roy was a member of the 4-H Clubs of America. Albert was a truck farmer.
Albert and Goldie’s marriage was a second for each of them. They loved to dance. They were also very active in their church and loved and were committed to making improvements to their church and had many friends in the church. All the Bommer family currently lives in Shandon or the southeast portion of Indiana.
