Boie, Mae Irene (28 April 1923 - 16 February 2013)

Mae Irene Boie, 89, of Stanley, passed away with family at her side, on Saturday, February 16, 2013, at the Country Terrace Assisted Living Center in Stanley, under the care of St. Joseph’s Hospice. She was born on April 28, 1923, in Thorp, to the late Frank and Dorothea (Kuntz) Graham. Mae grew up in the area and graduated from Thorp High in 1945. On June 16, 1945, she married Norval Boie at Epiphany Lutheran Church in Stanley. The couple farmed in the Town of Worden for many years.

Mae lived an active life with Christ. She volunteered at Victory Memorial Hospital for many years as a “Grey Lady,” and was a long-time member of the Worden Social Circle. She also was an active member at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church and later at TCF. Mae was a fervent reader of scripture and found much joy in Bible Study groups throughout her life.
