LORRAINE BODDY Mueller's Greenlee Funeral Home LORRAINE BODDY, 92, loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend to many, went to be with Our Lord on June 24, 2016. Lorraine was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on December 23, 1923. Soon after her birth, she was adopted by George and Florence Eggers. Lorraine had seven brothers and sisters. As a young adult, she served in the Navy during World War II, stationed in San Diego, CA. Lorraine later met Dude Boddy. They married on August 13, 1949, in Kansas City, Missouri.? The young couple moved to Pasco, WA, in the 1950's?with the rest of the Missouri boys (the Beebes, Holts and Snowdens) to assist in the start up of Pischel's yearbooks. Soon thereafter came her three sons, Michael, Vernon, and Brian. Lorraine was a wonderful wife, mother, and homemaker. She was a superb cook who could make anything from Chinese to Italian. Lorraine's family and friends often begged her to make them her killer pizzas which she made from scratch, and every holiday season the family was treated to her deliciously famous raspberry jello salad. Lorraine also baked her own cakes and cookies from scratch, and she once won 2nd place at the Iowa State Fair for her waffle cookie recipe. Lorraine would use her baking skills to make and sell gingerbread houses for extra money to buy presents for her children and family members. After raising her three boys, Lorraine became a tireless volunteer for the Women's Auxiliary at Our Lady of Lourdes in Pasco where she loyally volunteered 5 days a week for over 50 years. Lorraine was also a longtime member of the Riverview United Methodist Church in Pasco. She loved to read, watch football, and travel with her family. Lorraine was predeceased by her parents, siblings, and beloved husband Dude Boddy. Lorraine leaves behind her three boys, Michael (Kelly), Vernon, and Brian, two grandchildren, Dustin (Elizabeth) and Michelle, two great-grandchildren, Kaylie and Taylor, sister-in-law Ethelyn Boddy, niece Patty Boddy, sister-in-law Cindy Boddy, and nephew Sean Boddy. Lorraine was truly blessed with many friendships in her lifetime. Lorraine leaves behind long-time best friends and neighbors, Jerry and Sissel Selvig, whose daughters, Marti and Krista, were "shared" with Lorraine, as Lorraine thought of the girls as her own. Other longtime neighbors, Nashes, Snooks, Gates, and Conrad, dutifully watched over Lorraine, especially, after Dude's passing. Lorraine also leaves behind her countless friends and co-workers at Our Lady of Lourdes, especially, Sherri Stringer, and her many friends and supporters at church, including Pastor Derek R. McGuckin. Special thanks is reserved for Lorraine's friend, Janie, who, since Dude's passing, routinely picked Lorraine up and took her to church with her on Sundays, visited with her by phone or in person almost daily, and who rarely left Lorraine's side during her final days. Lorraine and her family will be forever grateful for your friendship and devotion. The family would like to thank all of the doctors and support staff that cared for Lorraine during her final days, as well as her many friends from Lourdes, the church, and fellow Parkview residents who visited and comforted her. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, June 30, 2016, at 2:00 p.m., at the Riverview United Methodist Church on Court Street in Pasco, WA. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Lorraine's name to the Women's Auxiliary at Our Lady of Lourdes, or to the Riverview United Methodist Church.
