Susie (Abrahams) Boese was born July 6, 1882 in McPherson County, Kansas to Jacob and Anna (Flaming) Abrahams. Here she received her elementary education and grew to womanhood.
When mother was 16 years old the responsibility of caring for seven younger brothers and sisters fell on her shoulders, when her mother passed away.
She was baptized May 20, 1902 by Elder Peter Balzer and remained a member of the Hoffnungsau Church near Inman, Kan. until her death.
On May 7, 1910 she was married to Jacob H. Boese near Inman. In 197 they moved to Beaver County, Oklahoma, three miles east of Turpin. Here they enjoyed farm life until 1949 when they moved to a residence in Liberal, Kan. In 1959 they moved to Turpin. Here our parents were privileged to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in 1960.
