So sorry Bill and Chris, I worked many years ago with Louise and we (the retired ladies of Fostoria Industries) tried to have lunch every year. Louise was there when able. I can't attend, but know I am thinking of the whole family.

I didn't know Mrs. Boes personally, but I was good friends of her late son, Tom. In reading her obituary, it was clear where Tom got his good nature, his community spirit, and his caring for those he loved. I send my deepest sympathy to all of her children and family. May she Rest In Peace.

Dear Boes family, my sincere condolences to all of you. I have happy memories living nearby Louise and her family -- the chickens, the minnows. I had the opportunity several years ago to knock on her door and have a wonderful visit reminiscing about my mom and dad -Dolores and Merlin- and hearing about all of your families. my prayers are with you.

Louise was a special lady and personal friend of mine. She spent many selfless hours, willingly, as a volunteer to help with whatever was asked of her by St. Wendelin Parish Office. I could always count on her to organize and carry out any project with which I needed assistance. One day she said she was "getting too old to volunteer", so she helped a bit longer by phoning others to help.
I am honored to have been a part of her life. I will not be available to attend formal recognition and services for her, but know I will be with you in spirit. God grant her rest and Peace.
