Grace A. Boegel, 88
Grace A. Boegel, 88, of St. Kilian (town of Ashford), passed away peacefully at her home with her family gathered around her.
Grace was born in Milwaukee on Jan. 20, 1929, the daughter of Philip and Theresa (Kohler) Volm. At a young age, her family moved to the St. Kilian area where she lived the rest of her life. Grace was a graduate of Kewaskum High School. On May 13, 1950, she married Raymond J. Boegel at St. Kilian Catholic Church and together they farmed the Boegel family homestead. Before marriage, Grace worked as a waitress and a file clerk at West Bend Co., and later worked in the deli at Piggly Wiggly, Campbellsport. But the job most important to her was raising her family. She often said, “My family is my life!” Grace had a gentle spirit and a loving heart.
She was a member of St. Matthew Catholic Church (St. Kilian Chapel), and a member of the St. Mary’s Sodality and Catholic Financial Life. Grace enjoyed her garden, flowers, cooking, baking and her farmhouse. Many of us eagerly waited for her first rhubarb torte in spring! She loved playing games with her children and grandchildren, especially king’s corner, crazy eight, slap jack, along with other card and board games.
Those who will miss her dearly are daughters, Mary (Robert) Twohig, Dorothy (Richard) Leider, Margie (Ronie) Stommel, Cathy (Tim) Flood, Pauline (Gary) Runge and Geralyn Boegel; daughter-in-law, Nancy Boegel; her sister, Betty Schrauth; grandchildren, Jerry (Vicky) Boegel, David Boegel, Michelle (Jeff) O’Connor, Beth (Christopher) Meece, Sarah (Dave) Olds, Mark (Tania) Wolf, Katy (Ron) Mihalko, Lisa (Jeff) Dickmann, Lori (Ashish) Gandhi, Andy Stommel, Gary Stommel (fiancée Barb), Connie Stommel (fiancé Ben), Kristy Stommel, Carrie (Zach) Sand, Jacob Flood, Angela (Josh) Fischer, Zachary Runge (Lynne), Lucas, Abigail, Elena Runge (David) and Anna Maurer, Casey (Cindy) Twohig, Kyle (Marci Danza) Twohig and Chelsea (Derek Gottlieb) Twohig; great-grandchildren, Josh, Brendon, Miranda, Logan, Olivia, Collin, Seth, Kendall, Hunter, Clayton, Quinn, William, Oliver, Taylor, Logan (Amanda), Isaac, Hannah, Adalynn, Graeson, Gillian, Tiegen, Drew, Tyler, Ethan, Luka, Priya, Morgan, Dalton, Kali, Morgan, Nolan, Quinn, Liam, Ellie, Blakely, Lilli, Josie, Molly, Madilyn and Gabriella; great-great-grandchild, Scarlett; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends, and also the many granddogs in her family.
