Ann Marquardt Boehm
August 21, 1931 – January 10, 2019
Ann Marquardt Boehm died peacefully in Williamsburg on January 10, 2019 at the age of 87. Ann is survived by her sister Susan Tiberghien of Geneva, Switzerland, and by her four children Arthur Bruce Boehm III, of Cleveland, OH, Susan Boehm Reynolds of Cambridge, MA, William Hollister Boehm of Cambridge, MA, and Jeffrey Stuart Boehm of Lexington, MA. All four children are married and Ann’s family has grown to include 9 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Arthur Bruce Boehm, Jr. and her partner of 3 years, William Salmon.
Ann was born on August 21, 1931 in Dobbs Ferry, New York to Eunice and Hollister Marquardt. She attended Cornell University where she was known as Biff, and married her college sweetheart, Bruce, soon after graduating in 1953. Her life with Bruce included happy homes in Midland, Michigan; Morristown, New Jersey; Frankfurt, Germany; and Brussels, Belgium. Throughout a life filled with love for her family and many friends, Ann has always exhibited a remarkable ability to create happy memories with anyone she met. She was very active with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (formerly known as Christopher Wren Association), William & Mary University and the Muscarelle Museum of Art. She was an avid bridge player, skier, golfer, and world traveler well into her 80’s. Her children will always remember her as a mom that was never too busy to put their needs first.
A celebration of her life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 19 at the Williamsburg United Methodist Church, with a reception to follow at the church. Rev. Meghan Roth Clayton and Chaplin Caitlin Hoy will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Ann’s life.
