FAITHFULLY—Barbara entered into eternal Life

Barbara Jean Boesiger, 89, went to be with the Lord on March 8, 2021. She was born on November 16, 1931, in Beatrice, Nebraska to John and Nettie (Sullivan) Garrison.

She attended St Joseph Catholic grade school in Beatrice and graduated from Cortland High School. She then attended Peru State Teacher’s College. She taught in a one room schoolhouse in rural Nebraska.

She married Wendell “Bo” Boesiger in 1950 in Lincoln, Nebraska. He preceded her in death in 1998. They lived in Cortland, Belgrade, Sutton, Grand Island, and Omaha, Nebraska before coming to Boulder, Colorado in 1963 and eventually moved to Loveland in 1971. Wendell and Barbara were one of 18 families to start the King of Glory Lutheran Church, and later went on to help start the Lutheran Church of Hope.

Throughout her life she was Cub Scout and Brownie Scout leader, and a room mother for many years for her children. She also enjoyed collecting antiques and had a great collection of cups and saucers and bells; she had a story about each one. She enjoyed growing rose bushes and her favorite color was light pink. She and her siblings enjoyed collecting and preparing the family genealogy.

Barbara dedicated her life to loving and nurturing her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She loved to travel, dance, and belonged to numerous card clubs.

She also enjoyed reading, music and being with her many friends. Her family was most important to her, she loved to cook family meals and play games and cards with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Barbara loved decorating and celebrating the holidays with her family, from the annual Easter egg hunt to putting up three Christmas trees. She always enjoyed the memorable annual trips to Lake McConaughy and ski trips to Breckenridge. Barbara was an avid Bronco fan, watching the games with son John and his friends.

In 1967 Barb began working for Public Service Company of Colorado (now Xcel Energy). She worked for them 27 years, retiring in 1994. While working for Public Service the “Eyes and Ears Program” was begun as way for children to get assistance in an emergency situation. Barbara visited all the elementary schools and explain the program to the students and showed them the logo that would be on all the utility vehicles. She then began her second career by volunteering at the Chilson Senior Center, McKee Hospital, and the Loveland Sculpture Show. She was also a member of the Red Hat Society as well Phi Beta Phi sorority.

She is preceded in death by her parents, husband, grandson and sisters. She is survived by her daughter, Sue (Mike) Thornburgh of Loveland; sons Bruce Boesgier (Arief) of Kirkland, Washington, Tom (Renita) Boesiger of Loveland, John (Teri) Boesiger of Loveland; brother, Jack (June) Garrison of Lincoln, Nebraska; 7 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews and many other relatives, friends and neighbors.
