"From the earth we came, to the earth we return.in between, we garden"

Ann Boymer - a simple and modest woman. To everyone around her she was seen as an amazing grace. She shined in this world and willingly shared joy with anyone whose life she touched. She was devoted to her faith and found her strength in the same. She found hope in any struggle, peace in every joy, and wonder and love in the heart of her family.

Her parents were Jacob and Julia Magyar, and was born on May 11th, 1921. Ann was raised on Orchard Park in Cleveland, Ohio. Even as a child, Ann had the ability to lift the spirits of all those around her. She was raised to be warm, caring, and friendly. She was strong willed and determined from sun up to sun down. Ann had six siblings; Elizabeth, Steve, Katherine, Rose, Mary, and Joe.

Ann never actually encountered a stranger in her dealings with people. She was drawn to individuals and crowds using her adaptable and outgoing personality. Ann utilized her interest in others as a great way to connect with them. Ann loved sharing life and having her home filled with people she knew -the doors were open and anyone was welcome.

On July 19th, 1947, Ann exchanged wedding vows with Robert Boymer in Cleveland, Ohio. Ann and Robert were blessed with four children - Bob, Barb, Ric, and Debi. In addition she was later blessed with three grandchildren; Katie, Jeff, and Charlotte. Ann had the ability to focus her attention on the present moment, If she was spending time with the kids, that where all her attention was focused. Ann had a compassionate side and she could turn just about any situation into a peaceful learning experience.

At work, as in life, Ann was a real "people-person". She had a very successful way of dealing effectively with others and her enthusiasm and energy was often contagious. Ann was adaptable using her common sense and trusting her experiences and impulses to uncover the correct answer. She wore many hats, though her primary occupation was a school monitor, where she was known and loved as "the milk lady". She worked at the Elzona Restaurant, was "the uncommon waitress" at Radus and later retired from Kensington School.

Ann seldom had simple leisure time as she just hated sitting around. She loved to cook and bake and her passion and joy was gardening. Naturally outgoing and generous, Ann was regularly doing for others. For her, the gift of giving to others was second nature. Though she never set out to gain individual recognition, Ann was given accolades for her many and varied accomplishments through her life. Her most prestigious award was 'Employee of the Year' at Kensington School.

Ann loved her home and was at her best in the comfort of her own yard. She was a lover of animals and cherished her pets. One of her favorites was Bailey - he was her "caregiver" for years, as she would say. There were also others - Snowy, Taffy, Onesy, Twosy, Heidi, Pele, and Buddy.

Ann never gave herself enough credit for all she did, she did well. "What is essential is invisible to the eye." No one can duplicate her oven fried chicken. That "Hunky" chicken soup that could nourish ones soul and her postcard perfect candied sweet potatoes.

Ann passed away peacefully at her home in Rocky River in her sun room on March 30th, 2015 in the loving care of Barb. How often she would say "What do you expect, I'm old." She is survived by her children Bob, Barb, Ric, Debi, and her grandchildren Katie, Jeff and Charlotte. She is deeply missed as well by neighbors and friends, especially Margie. Services were held a t St Christopher Church in Rocky River, Ohio. Ann's cremated remains rest in her home and her Mary's garden she loved best.

Ann brought joy to all of those around her. She loved to have a good time and was always looking on the bright side of things. Ann lived life simply and kindly and made everyone around her happier just for knowing her. She will be remembered with a smile. Let us always remember her with joy and laughter. Let's celebrate her life each and every day.

"In one of those stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And it will be as if all the stars were laughing when you look at the sky at night. You - only you - will have the stars that can laugh. And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me. (The Little Prince)

Shine down through those openings in heaven to let us know that you are with us.

We love you Mom, always and forever.
