Obituary - Maria Boethin
Maria Apollonia Katharine Fink Boethin, daughter of Leonhard Fink and his wife, Babette Glock, was born in the western part of Phillips County, Kansas on October 29, 1892, and departed this life at the Phillips County Hospital, Phillipsburg, Kansas, on May 2, 1986, having attained the age of 92 years.
Marie grew to womanhood southwest of Stuttgart and moved with her family to the Wolf Creek area northeast of Logan at an early age. She taught school and worked in a store for some years and was a farm wife who enjoyed county living for as long as her health permitted. Her illness caused her to become a resident of the Borum Gentle Care Home in Phillipsburg for several years and then she transferred to the Logan Manor at Logan, Kansas, where she made her home until her Lord called her home.
Marie was baptized into the Christian faith at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Stuttgart, Kansas, on November 20, 1892, and was confirmed in the Lutheran faith at the St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Wolf Creek, Logan, Kansas, on March 25, 1906. She was a member of the Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Stuttgart, Kansas, at the time of her death.
She was united in marriage with William Boethin on April 25, 1917, at the St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Logan, and they made their home on farm northeast of Logan in the Wolf Creek vicinity. To this union three sons, Wilbur, Milton and Calvin, were born. In addition to their three sons, she and her husband raised her husband's nephew, Max Schick, following his mother's death.
She leaves to mourn her passing her four son and their families: Wilbur and his wife Ella, Logan; Milton and his wife, Mary Alice, Stockton, Calivin, Stockton, and Max Schick and his wife, Norma, Phillipsburg; 11 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and one step-great-grandchild; one sister, Eva Kaiser, Phillipsburg; and two sisters-in-law: Elizabeth Fink, Logan, and Martha Fink, Agra; plus many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Memorial services were held at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Stuttgart, on Monday, May 5, 1986, with Pastor Duane Levin officiating. Hymns were sung by the congregation with Mrs. Marene Levin as organist.
Casket bearers were William Schick, Merlyn Schick, Steven Schick, Dennis Hale, Michael Luft, Roger Boethin, Marcus Boethin, Robert Charbonneau and Joel Powell.
Burial was in the St. Peter's Lutheran Church Cemetery northeast of Logan, Kansas to await the resurrection.
