Celebration of life for Dorothy Boehm planned for later date
Dorothy Arlene Boehm, 92, of Buffalo Center, Iowa, died Saturday, April 25, 2020 at the Timely Mission Nursing Home.
Dorothy was born Oct. 26, 1927 in Buffalo Center to Tjark and Grace (Gerzema) Krull. She attended Buffalo Center School and graduated with the class of 1945.
On Jan. 25, 1946, she married Otto Boehm at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa.
Dorothy was a stay-at-home mother, but always had a full day of work, from being a homemaker, a livestock caretaker, to a tractor driver or wherever needed - she would help. She would always have time to raise a garden and spend hours with her flowers. She made a special freezer strawberry jam that she would share with family and friends. The only problem was the containers were too small!
She has been a lifelong member of the First Reformed Church of Buffalo Center. She was involved in the Ruth Circle, a member of the Golden Club and was chairman of the serving committee.
Dorothy is survived by her husband, Otto of 74 years; sons, Daryl (Arvilla) of Racine and Duane (Annette) of Lakota, Iowa; grandchildren, Megan (Shawn) Erickson, Tyler (Teresa) Boehm, Cory (Bobbie) Boehm and Erin (Jason) Olson; 13 great-grandchildren, Brock, Brody, Braeden and Braxton Erickson; Gavin, McKenzie and Caden Boehm; Corbin, Dawson, Easton and Britton Boehm; and Ashlyn and Brenna Olson; sisters in law, Thelma Boutelle, Viola Krull, Rosie Nerdig, Elaine Boehm and JoAn Boehm; and brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Robert and Gracille Boehm.
Preceding her in death were her parents, Tjark and Grace Krull, her brothers, Everett, John and Donald Krull, and an infant sister.
A special thank you to the Timely Mission Nursing Home and the staff for being Dorothy's caregiver for the last 1 ½ years.
Due to circumstances, a private family service will be held. A celebration of Dorothy's live will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be mailed to Otto Boehm, 209 South Main, Buffalo Center, Iowa 50424. Memorials are preferred to First Reformed Church or to Buffalo Center Fire and Ambulance.
