Mary B Boehlke

Mary Loyola Berger Boehlke died peacefully July 9, 2023, age 97, at Hillcrest Hospital where she had been a volunteer for 35 years. Mary was born on March 20, 1926 in Cleveland, Ohio at St. Ann’s Hospital to John and Irene (nee Bradley) Berger. She attended Shaw High School.

She married Edmond M. Boehlke on Sept 10, 1948 in Cleveland, had two daughters Beth and Susan, and resided in Lyndhurst, Ohio. She loved traveling and gardening. Roses, Gardenias and African Violets were some of her favorite flowers. As a young mother she was a Girl Scout leader and served as president of the Sunview school PTA.
Mary and Ed spent many of their winters in Deerfield Beach, Florida where she enjoyed the beach, reading, knitting and sharing vacations with her grandchildren. To embrace the changing technology she joined a computer club, learning to email and create her own greeting cards.

After Ed passed, Mary moved to the Weils in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. She was a member of St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church.
Mary was preceded in death by her parents, a brother Donald J. (Vivian ) Berger and a sister Jane (Larry) Pillot.
She is survived by beloved daughters Beth Sedlak (David) Bowe and Susan Bondra, grandchildren Sarah Sedlak (Austin) Brougher, Laura Sedlak (Charley) McKee, Christopher (Alexa Farmerie) Bondra, Carolyn Bondra, and Kaitlin (Sam) Newman, step-grandchildren Christopher and Emily Bowe, great grandchildren Wesley McKee, Boyd, Grace and Luca Bondra, and Charles Newman.

Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Joan of Arc, 496 E. Washington St. in Chagrin Falls on Friday July 21, 2023 at 10:30 am. Friends and family may gather to pay respects from 9:00 to 10:15 am. at the church.

Mary wished to be cremated and ashes spread in the ocean with Ed’s.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
