Dorothy Ann Boschert, 92, of Columbia, MO passed away Thursday, December 13, 2018 at Boone Hospital Center in Columbia, MO.
Dorothy was born November 8, 1926 in Cottleville, MO to John and Cecilia (nee Witte) Dreisewerd. She married Glennon H. “Whitey” Boschert on February 8, 1949 in Cottleville, MO and they were married 58 years before his passing in 2007.
She was a devoted Catholic and was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church. She was a stay at home mother and a farmer’s wife and later retired from Shelter Insurance. She and her husband were partners in the farming operation, and she drove a tractor in the fields and helped with all aspects. Her tractor skills were impressive. She was a lifelong fan of Cardinal Baseball and enjoyed jigsaw puzzles and country music, especially Alan Jackson. She had nine brothers and sisters and enjoyed spending times with their families, especially at family reunions. Nothing brightened her eyes more than grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Dorothy is survived by her brother, Norbert Dreisewerd of Flint Hill, son Roger and wife Donna of Kingsville, MD; daughters, Mary Lou Mills and husband Tom of Columbia; Cindy Roe and husband Jim of Columbia; granddaughters, Alisa Hooper and husband Gary of Warrenton, Kara Krause and husband Shawn of Warrenton, Carrie Clark and husband Tom of Columbia, grandson Chris Mills of Columbia. Great-grandsons, Brandon Hooper, Luke Quesenberry, James Clark and Oliver Clark, and great-granddaughter, Riley Quesenberry.
She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, three sisters and five brothers.
The family would like to acknowledge the care and friendship provided by Morgan Davis and Brenda Righter, as well as the care provided by Dr. Lyndell Scoles and staff, Dr. Tony Spaedy, and Dr. Brad Noble. Special thanks to the staff at Boone Hospital for their outstanding care and compassion.
