Nancy Carol Boone
May 6, 1943 – May 8, 2018
Nancy Carol Boone, 75, of Phoenix, entered into rest on May 8, 2018. She was born to parents, Edward and Colleen Leverenz on May 6, 1943. She is survived by her husband Dale F. Boone, son Dale R. Boone, daughter Karen Schmaltz, Sister Joyce Caverley, Brothers Robert and Michael Leverenz, 3 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. As her heart was so giving, she volunteered at St. Gregory Catholic Church as the Gift Shop Manager over the past 10 years. During her time there, she built relationships with many parishioners and became a cherished member of the church community. She loved and enjoyed all the dogs she had over her lifetime: Heidi, Sheba, Mandy, Raven, Bear and Gonzo. Gardening, cooking, and spending time with her grandchildren were her passions. She was a loving mother and wife who brought great joy to her family. With her lively personality and sense of humor, she brought great mirth to so many lives. We will miss her dearly, knowing that she is in heaven with her granddaughter, Sarah and other family members brings great comfort. She will be greatly missed as we await and look forward to our joyous reunion. Visitation will be on Monday, May 14th, 5:00-7:00 P.M. with praying the Rosary at 6:00 P.M. at St. Gregory's Catholic Church, 3424 N. 18th Ave. Funeral Mass will be on Tuesday, May 15th at 10:00 A.M. at the Church. Committal at the graveside will follow at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery. Memorial contributions can be made to the Arizona Humane Society. http://www.azhumane.org/.

I’m not sure where to start. So I'll start with, Aunt Nancy you are going to be so missed...your smile, your laughter, the way you tell things, and your funny stories. The beautiful person I knew and loved my whole life.
The question I keep asking myself over and over is, what is this life going to be like without you in it? I will have to continue looking for the answer. In the mean time, I will think of you often, I will think of you and smile because that’s what I believe you would want.
I will do better at staying in touch with Rick and Karen. I know they were your greatest joys. I will keep track of your brothers, and watch over your sister. Their loss is heavy, they have known you their whole life. I will love Uncle Dale and pray for him. Life without you will be the hardest on him.
I will remember to send out cards and handwritten letters. I will remember how much like my favorite Aunt I am. You will always be in my heart, therefore, you are always going to be with me. Your “favorite niece” ( Me! I can picture your eye twitching.. but it’s ok because it’s our secret, right? ) is so grateful for the time we got to keep you. I know you are watching over us, you are our Guardian Angel. So until we meet again, I love you and I will miss you. RIP Aunt Nancy, with butterfly kisses and all my love.

I am blessed to have had Nancy in my life. I enjoyed every Sunday with her and seeing her with her beautiful family. There were a lot of days I would go just because of her. She has shown me and my family love and friendship through out the years. She will be missed so much. I hope I can try to show others as much kindness as she did. I will be thinking of her every time I step foot in Saint Gregory's gift shop. My prayers and love go out to her and her beautiful family. God Bless you all

I always enjoyed our family parties laughing and catching up. Nancy had a way of entertaining all of us. I’ve known her since she was in her teens and she’s been in the family a long time. I want everyone to know how much I love them and wish I could be there with you.
