Ed served in the United States Air Force from 1953-1961. On June 8,1957 he married the love of his life, Beverly Randall, at the Sacred Heart Church in Osage. Out of that love, 6 children were born. Their marriage began in Minneapolis before returning to the Osage area to raise their family. He worked for numerous farmers prior working at Lamberts Lumber Yard as a yard foreman. In 1975, Ed and Bev started Boehmer’s Janitor Service, serving Osage and surrounding communities until their retirement. They worked side-by-side, never being apart. They spent several years enjoying the Texas sun visiting Grandma Ruth part-time until becoming full-time winter Texans in Paradise Park, McAllen, TX. Ed was known for his love of life, family and friends. Always a jokester; dressing up as a bag lady, jumping out to scare you and always willing to dress up for skits at Paradise Park. Ed had a very strong faith and was a true servant of God, a parishioner at Sacred Heart (Osage) and Our Lady of Sorrow (McAllen). No one was a stranger, as he was a true friend to all and we were all blessed to know him. Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 66 years, Beverly; children: daughter Sandy (Rod) Harang of Mapleton MN, children Nicole and Sabrina, daughter-in-law Laurie Boehmer (Bruce) of Osage, children Vanessa, Cassondra, Emma; son Ken (Kathy) Boehmer of Osage, children Natasha and Bronson; daughter Donna (Mike) Kuennen, Fort Atkinson, children Madalyn, Micaela, Mara, Max; daughter Mary (Carl) Bethke of Osage, children Matthew, Erin; son Jim (Angie) Boehmer of Lake Mills, children Lincoln, Grant, Cael; 19 great grandchildren; three brothers, Dick, Duane and Tim along with numerous nieces and nephews.

I am very sorry for your loss. My daddy always had Uncle Eddy call him on his birthday. I believe it was his dad? Please accept my condolences.

Ed was a back door neighbor at Paradise Park. While visiting the Park for the first time, Pam was inside the Rec Hall and I was outside, Ed came over and engaged me in friendly conversation. He was one of the main reasons we chose Paradise Park as our winter home. Thoughts and prayers to you Bev and your family.
