Irma was born the only child to the late Frederick and Anna Meyer in May of 1921. She grew up in Brooklyn graduating HS in 1939. She met John Boeschen in the neighborhood and the couple married and started a family of their own. Being a product of the great depression and the greateast generation , Irma knew the value of a dollar and hard work. She devoted her life to her family always doing what she could to provide for a beautiful home and upbringing. When she wasn’t at work or raising the children, she could most likely be found tending to her flower and vegetable garden. She had a green thumb and many were the lucky recipients of her bounty. She loved being with her children and even more so her grandchildren. She was the proud Grandma to five through the years and most recemtly was crowned with the title of Great Grandma to three little ones. We celebrate Irma today and in the days ahead and thank God for her grace and love she has given to us all.
Predeceased by her husband John and her son Richard; she leaves a lifetime of happy memories to her son Kenneth (Christine) and daughter Carol Sheldon (Kevin); her grandchildren Kimberly Ribich (Michael), Robert Boeschen, Michael and Meghan Sheldon and Kathryn Smith (Daniel); her adored great grandchildren Jack, Danny and Charlotte; daughter in law Ruth Boeschen; and many more dear friends, relatives and caretakers.
