Betty Ann Boomer

Died: Tuesday, March 11, 2008
Age: 77
Betty Ann Boomer, 77, a lifelong resident of Almont, died Tuesday, March 11, 2008 at Genesys Hospice Center in Goodrich.

Betty was born October 26, 1930 in Almont, the daughter of William and Maude (Raduchel) Gottschling. She lived and worked on her father’s farm in the village of Almont and attended Almont High School.

While working as a waitress at the Almont Cafe, she met Howard Boomer. They married on April 8, 1947.

Betty was a homemaker and the mother of four children. She baked countless numbers of apple pies for friends and neighbors. She was a gardener and kept everyone on Hansburger Street well supplied with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers.

Betty enjoyed bird watching and tended her yard and feeders to welcome chickadees, bluebirds, nuthatches and woodpeckers. One spring she successfully raised five orphaned chickadees through round-the-clock feedings and motherly devotion. “Jammie’’ delighted her nine grandchildren every holiday by decorating her home inside and out with Christmas angels, Easter bunnies and Halloween goblins.

Betty will be missed by her husband, Howard; her children, Ken (Nancy) Boomer, Gary (Micaela) Boomer, Susan (Ron) Petraitis and Cynthia (Paul) Coscarelli; nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren; one sister, Shirley (Harold) Oswald; and brother, William Gottschling. She was preceded in death by her parents; her sisters, Wilma (Edward) Schroeder, Marion (Chester) Dombrowski, and Doris Gottschling; and lately, her sister-in-law, Helen Stern.

Funeral services were held on Friday, March 14 at Muir Brothers Funeral Home in Almont with Pastor Mark Melillo of the First Congregational Church in Almont officiating. Burial followed in Ferguson Cemetery. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Genesys Hospice Center, 7280 S. State Rd., Goodrich, MI 48438.
