Boone, Marian Delores (Pepin) - Woodland  
WOODLAND, Calif. - Marian D. Boone, RN (Ret), 88, passed away peacefully of natural causes on Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015, at Carmichael. Marian Delores Boone was born in Oelwein, Iowa in April 1926, the youngest of 7 children of Lawrence and Myrtle Pepin. After graduating high school in 1944, she was accepted for the Cadet Nursing Program at the Broadlawns Polk County Hospital in Des Moines, in 1945, where she was known to classmates as "Pep." Her first nursing job was at the Tacoma Indian Hospital in Tacoma, Wash., where she met 1st Lt. Archie Austin, and they married in 1949. After the birth of their first 2 children, the family moved to Monterey (CA) where their 3rd child arrived, then to Germany, Georgia, New Jersey, and a second trip to Germany in 1961, where Marian worked as the school nurse at the base school (K-12) in Bremerhaven. They travelled extensively throughout Western Europe. She settled with the family in Sacramento in 1964 and immersed herself in her nursing career at Sutter Memorial and then Methodist Hospitals for over 20 years. Divorced by 1967, she married Elmo E. Boone in 1969, a marriage that lasted over 44 years until Elmo's passing in early 2014. After retirement, she volunteered for the Sacramento County Sheriff Dept. from 1996-1999. A prolific quilter, she helped found a small quilting group called the "Sew and Sews," and later the "Teddy Bear Ladies," creating quilts for Parkway fundraising events, Child Protective Services and the Linus Project (children's cancer center). One stunning log cabin pattern quilt was displayed at the Woodland County Fair. She and Elmo moved to Woodland in 1999, where Marian enjoyed volunteering as a STAR for the Yolo County Sheriff's Dept. for 15 years. Marian Boone had a truly unique personality and rarely withheld her opinion on a range of subjects. She will be missed very much by her family and the many friends she made over the years. Survivors include her sister, Barbara Glaw, children Douglas C. Austin (Evie), Tara L. Carson (Bobby), Craig S. Austin (Judy), 3 grandchildren, Jeff Carson (Raha), Paul Carson (Tiffany) and Brian Austin (Lisa) and 1 great-grandchild, Madison. Area relatives include nieces and nephews, Terry (Bev) Pepin, Dennis (Marcia) Pepin, James Hoffman, all of Oelwein, Diane Steffen of Hudson, Linda Meier of Waterloo, Norman Glaw of Sumner and David Hoffman of Tennessee. A celebration of life will be held at the Woodland Community & Senior Center, 2001 East Street, Saturday, Jan. 31, from noon to 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, remembrances can be made to her favorite charities, the Wounded Warrior Project or St. Jude's.
