Mrs. Boone was a woman of intellect; ambitious and exceedingly versatile. Previous to her marriage she taught school in the Town of Weston and after the death of her husband she attended a business college at Stevens Point, and was employed for a time as a stenographer at Oshkosh and Stevens Point. Some 25 years ago she ran a photograph studio at Amherst. Mrs. Boone educated her daughters in the public schools of Neillsville, Wis. She was a kind and thoughtful neighbor and well liked by all who knew her. In recent years she made her home in Waupaca. About a year ago she suffered a stroke and on Feb. 4 of this year a second stroke ended in her death.
