Patricia Held Boone left her 91 year old body early in the morning of April 4, 2018 to be with her lord Jesus Christ. We anticipate a grand reunion with her husband, Hal
Boone, and her granddaughter, Faith Boone Kirby, who have been at the Lamb’s table for several years now.
Her family is immensely grateful to her two daughters, Susan Boone Goodgame and Cathy Boone Schellenberg, and daughter in law, Carol Boone, who so tenderly and faithfully met her every need as she was bedridden the last few weeks of her life.
Her life was a grand adventure with the husband she loved and the six children, their spouses, 27 grandchildren, many spouses, and 69 great grandchildren, she was blessed to enjoy. Her constant smile brightened every place she entered and her deep joy and peace enriched every relationship she experienced.
She spent 20 years in East Africa, between 1958 and 1976 with her missionary husband and family and another two and a half decades caring for her husband night and day after an accident left him paraplegic. She was a constant blessing to everyone, and in every situation was encouraging, patient and kind. There may have been others who so clearly displayed the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and generosity, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control, but she shown like a bright light on a dark night.
She will be missed, but we all know she is free of all misery, is rejoicing with the Savior she followed so faithfully and that one day, all the children of God will be together again, celebrating His life and joy, freely given to anyone who would accept this amazing gift.
