Board Emeritus & Founders

Jerry & Judy Bohl

Judy Bohl was born and raised in East Detroit (now East Pointe), Michigan. She received 12 years of formal education and 71 years of “life education.” She and Jerry married in 1965 and moved to Southwest Michigan in 1967. She has always shown great care and interest in children, raising hers and others. During visits to developing countries since 1995, she realized the problem of millions of individuals who have no access to, or money for, bacteria and virus-free water, especially young children. After learning about the UV light water purification system, she and Jerry helped develop the water purification unit CWFW uses today, and, as they say, the rest is history. CWFW has truly been a blessing in her life.


Board of Directors

Anne Bohl – Chair

Chuck Dombrowski – Vice Chair

Whitney Ehresman – Secretary

Tony Romano – Treasurer

Tony Romano was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island. He has been married to his partner, Elsie C. Romano, for 49 years. A high-school romance, they married a few years after graduation. They have four children, 3 sons and 1 daughter, living in Chicago, Denver, Indianapolis and Washington, D.C., respectively. All are married and have given Tony and Elsie seven beautiful grandchildren between the four of them.

Tony is a member of St. Thomas More Parish in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He is a retired Head of Information Systems for a manufacturing company, having received a variety of training at Providence College and IBM with numerous technical certifications.

Tony got involved with CWFW through founder, Jerry Bohl, while doing an extension of sister parish activities in El Salvador. An active volunteer, Tony works with AARP Tax Aide, Refugee resettlement and immigration. As the treasurer, his experience helps CWFW immensely. For him, Clean Water is a win-win situation–whether one system is installed or 100, the only question is how many people you can help.
