Mary Anne was a fine asset to our family. Intelligence and talent characterized Anne along with incredibly long hours of caring for others.
Her faith, and her husband, Deacon Allen, made it possible for her wonderful deeds as a mom and teacher.

For the Morrison family; she published address directories, provided genealogical research and summaries, and “family heritage” recipes along with helping when specific types of aid were needed. Deacon Allen and/or Anne attended to Catholic details as well as attended each family memorial service.

At first, I was forlorn about the huge snowstorm that kept many of us from her services. How characteristic of Anne and her immediate family to alert us that they understood any absence for safety reasons. After many emails, phone calls etc, it struck me that we will discuss her services for years and years at our family gatherings. We, who knew of the love for St. Andrew’s in the Boedeker family, have heard of the many people at her funeral and the presence of many priests on the altar. No greater testimony can be given that Anne based her life in faith and the family of God.

Farewell Anne. We know you’re safely home. You will be missed.

Dear Allen & family,

Our heart felt sympathy & prayers to all of you for your loss. Mary Anne, Anne as our family knew her was not only a blessing to us but also to her parish family. She was so gifted & selflessly shared all of her talents. We grew up together as cousins sharing many memories over the years. My favorite are the lunches & outings we shared with Cindy & our dear Aunt Carmen. We always had such a good time. I was not ready to say good bye so soon. I am heart broken weather kept us from greeting your beautiful husband & family in person & participating
in your final celebration of life & litergies we want everyone to know how much we loved you & you will be missed. You were truly a woman of faith & helped us all to be closer to God by your example.

Your loving cousin,
Cheryl

Sending our love and heartfelt sympathy to you, Allen and your sons; David, Paul and Robert, along with the rest of your family. We love you all, and know what an extraordinary person, Mary was! She touched the lives and hearts of everyone around her, with love, and such a generous spirit! She took the time, no matter how busy she was, to listen, give a hug, or advice, while always challenging us to be better, or do better, for our Lord. Her rules and guidelines, for the dinner table, are well remembered by our kids, even though it was many years ago, that she patiently guided and instructed them on how to properly conduct themselves, while guests in your home and at your table. Our sons are now teaching their children “Mom” Boedeker’s rules. Mary never wasted a teachable moment, or to let you know that she was there for you! Mary looked at everyone as the same. We were all her friends to whom she served big helpings of her heart felt love , or wonderful dishes that you shared at your kitchen or dining room tables! Allen, we know who cooked the most, and did the dishes, lol, but you had the best and most loving partner that God , for sure, planned for you, in every way! Together, nothing was impossible for you, two because of you willingness to be guided by our Heavenly Father in every area of your lives and marriage. We always thanked God for the Boedekers! We were so blessed to have you as our dear friends, here in Madison, IN. We loved Mary, and all of you fellas! We have wonderful, shared, memories of special times on our farm, that we will forever treasure! May God heal your broken hearts and grant you His peace, as you find your way without her, here, but we all know that she has already found a way to serve, in Heaven, and will have everything in perfect order, when she greets us there! Hugs to all! The Goley’s: Paul & Cindy, Kyle and Amanda, Hannah, Savannah and Oscar, Chris & Erin , Abigail, your Godson, Nic, and Jon & Emily and baby Gunner.

Mrs. B, you were always such a kind and thoughtful person to everyone at PSR. You made each and everyone of us feel special and closer to God. Your passion for the students is one of the things that helped push me to become a teacher. I know you are at peace now and watching over St. Andrews.

Anne, you were always such a gracious hostess to me and my family over the years. We won’t ever forget all the special meals we shared.

Remembering just one of those special times...Aunt Carmen’s last birthday lunch (Three Families Restaurant - June 20, 2016).

We will miss you!

❤️ Love and Prayers,
Cindy and Dwayne Lowry
