Burial Date November 2, 2020
Funeral Home Rose-Neath Bossier City
(Hester) Ann Boley, 85, of Bossier City, departed her earthly life on Tuesday, October 28, 2020 with her family at her bedside at Willis Knighton Pierremont after a brief illness.
Ann was born on July 11, 1935 in Jonesboro, AR to Mr. & Mrs. E. E. Pharis, the youngest of six children.
She met her future husband, Lloyd Boley, when he was home on leave in Jonesboro, from Travis AFB in California. They met while on dates with others and were instantly smitten. After Lloyd returned to California, he sent Ann a plane ticket to come for a visit. The rest, as they say, is history. They were married on September 9, 1956.
Ann was a dedicated Air Force wife as she and Lloyd were stationed in California, Puerto Rico, North Dakota, Arkansas, and finally Louisiana. When Lloyd retired in 1975, they chose to make their permanent home in Bossier City.
Ann worked in retail sales for many years with Palais Royal, Wellans and Dillard’s. She made many friends through the years with both coworkers and customers. She was a gifted gardener and always had a yard suitable for feature in Southern Living magazine.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers (Dean, Will Ed and Milton) and sisters (Betty and Sue).
She is survived by her husband, Lloyd, and children Lorie Boley Harper (Gary) of Haynesville and Fred Boley (Carolyn) of Shreveport. She was a loving Mimi to her four granddaughters Katie Harper Miles (Brandon), Lauren Boley, Shelby Harper and Caroline Boley Calhoun ((Logan). She thoroughly enjoyed her great-grandchildren Addison, Lillie Ann, Veronica, John Ivan and Braden and always eagerly awaited their visits.
She will be remembered by those who knew her well as outspoken, quick-witted and fiercely loyal.
