A longtime member of the First Baptist Church, Letha was born in Roscoe to Mary B. and R.E. Gracey on July 1, 1938. She graduated from Roscoe High School in 1956 and from Texas Tech University in 1960 with her BBA. From Angelo State University, she received her elementary education certificate. She married Jim Boston on Feb. 4, 1961, in Fort Worth. In her 54 years of marriage, she held numerous jobs at Texas A&M University, JJ Pearce High School, Hermleigh High School and served on the Roscoe ISD school board. After 13 years of service to Hermleigh School, she retired in 1999. However, she did not retire from service to organizations, including Meals on Wheels, the Roscoe First Baptist Church, Nolan County Library Board, Nolan County Child Welfare Board and continued to be an active member of the Texas Tech chapter of Pi Beta Phi. Letha never met a stranger. She was a generous and caring lover of people of all ages. She enjoyed her yard, her garden (especially fresh tomatoes), her family, spoiling her three grandkids, exercising with her friends, playing bridge and her club, "The Stitches." Letha was fiercely loyal and would bravely stand up for what she thought was right and true.
Letha is survived by her loving husband and best friend, Jim Boston; along with her daughter, Kelly Richardson and husband Eddie; son, Josh Boston and wife Delma; grandchildren, James and Annie Martin and Jayton Boston; three step grandchildren; and her special dog, Leo. She is also survived by sisters, Sid Weaver of Sugarland, Tiny Hinrichs of Houston and Rebecca Gracey of Albuquerque, N.M.; one brother-in-law; her special friend, Billie Jean Martin; and many special cousins, nieces and nephews.
Letha was preceded in death by her parents, R.E. and Mary B. Gracey; sisters, Jane Horn and Gwen Terry; brothers-in-law, Peyton Weaver, Buster Horn, Jack Hinrichs and Bob Killian.
Pallbearers will be Joe Brad McVey, Mike Ensminger, Johnny Martin, Bill Hunter, Lloyd Harris, Jesse Valdivia, Patrick Ivy and Britt Pieper.
