In 1913, Boice Funeral Home began serving families from a building located near Fourth Street and Pollasky Avenue. At that time, the funeral home was called Beal Brothers Funeral Home. In 1929, Mr. and Mrs. Boice borrowed $5,000 and built a new funeral home and residence at Boice’s current address at the southwest corner of Third Street and Pollasky Avenue. The funeral home was renamed Arthur Boice Undertaking.
With Mrs. Boice’s assistance in all phases of the family business, the funeral home became known for its unique feature of having a "Lady Attendant" who helped Arthur Boice serve families. The family tradition continued through the years, including the Boices’ daughter Maxine and son-in-law Clyde Barnett serving the Clovis, rural Fresno and foothill communities.
When Mr. Boice passed away in 1964, Mrs. Boice, known as "Mrs. B.," continued to operate the funeral home. In 1977, Mrs. Boice sold Boice Funeral Home to their long-time family friends at Lisle Funeral Home of Fresno.
