News Death Notice
BOECKMAN, Ida O. 77 of Dayton, passed away unexpectedly at her home at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, March 18, 2013. Born September 8, 1935 in Allen Township, Ohio, she was the daughter of the late Ferdinand (Ferd) and Leona (Knapke) Heuing. She was preceded in death by her husband Jerome, brother Melvin (Bud), sisters Mary Ann (and husband John Leopard), Alice (and husband Robert Leopard), Dorothy (and husband Carl Tobe), Edna (and husband Gene Koester), Norma (and husband Myron Huber), Jean, and brother-in-law Lester Fleck. She is survived and will be missed by her loving children, sons Ron (Patty) Boeckman of Englewood, Jeff (Charlene) Boeckman of Clayton, daughters Pam Boeckman and Shelly Boeckman, both of Dayton, sister Margie Fleck, sister-in-law Kathleen (Toots) Heuing, and brother-in-law Harold (Hans) Borgerding. She was blessed with, and loved, her six grandchildren; David, Christopher, Courtney, Tony, Caroline, and Garrett, and two great-grandchildren; Conner and Emma. Ida also enjoyed the love of many nieces and nephews, extended family and friends too numerous to mention. Ida was a faith-filled person who was active in church life over the years, specifically the pantry services for Assumption/Our Lady of Mercy parishes. She served this ministry for nearly 30 years and through this activity formed a group of very close friends. Along with her faith, Ida had immense inner strength and showed this by defeating a bout of cancer several years ago. Ida was an avid Bingo player and you wanted to stay out of her way when she had Bingo blotters in her hands. Ida enjoyed keeping her mind busy by doing crossword fill-in puzzles, which her husband Jerry referred to as her 'homework'. Ida carried on a Heuing tradition by gathering each November with family members to make Christmas candy, especially her famous buckeyes. Her loved ones find comfort in knowing that Ida is not only in the arms of our Lord, but back in the arms of her husband Jerry who went home a short 51 days ago. Visitation will be held Sunday March 24, 2013, from 3 PM to 7 PM at the BAKER-HAZEL & SNIDER FUNERAL HOME, 5555 Philadelphia Drive, DAYTON, OH 45415 and Monday, March 25, 2013 from 9:30-10 AM at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church.
