    Boopie and I met when we were college roommates at Hanover College. I will miss our chats and laughs the most. She was a true frined that was always there to lend an ear when I needed it. My deepest sympathy to her family, but the one thing I know is she loved all of you and even though I have only met a few of you, I felt like I had known all of you for years cause she would talk about all of you and how she loved you. Love to all of you ,Kathy Kroger Jenkins

    It is difficult to believe that I will not be able to pick up my phone again to hear Boopie's voice calling me "Amy Sue"...She was a good friend,even from far away,and one who was always interested in the lives of her friends & her family.We all heard so much about Boopie's brothers-sisters-parents-child-grandchild that we felt like we knew them as well as our own.And then there's Jim-the love she always looked for & finally found.I'm grateful to have known Boopie for such a long time,& I'm grateful to have some of her "fortunate purchases" at my house to look at & laugh & help remind me of her.

    My deepest sympathy to her husband Jim, Betty's Mom and all her sisters and brothers and extended families. I was Boopies's roomate our sophmore year. We laughed together often especially the time I put voltive candles in her shoes because her feet smelled! I will always remember her love for her family, animals and nature. I will miss talking to her and her beautiful laugh. We all had such a good time in Chicago several years ago and also at my home- they were great reunions of seven special women who have all remained close since we were 18 years old! I will miss Boopie and I am happy I have many fond memories to reflect upon.
