She was born March 4, 1928 in Findlay, Ohio the daughter of the late Arnold C. Baker, Sr. and Anna (Benadum) Baker Shaffer.

On August 20, 1946 she married the R. Lee Boley by the late Rev. Ralph Tucker. Lee preceded her in death on December 28, 1996 after celebrating 50 years of marriage in August of 1996.

She had attended Wesley United Methodist Church in Van Wert. Alice had worked part time as a receptionist for Adkin's Tax Office in Van Wert for over 30 years. She had also been the manager of Lord's Dress Shop and Cato's Dress Shop.

She was a life member and past president of the Robert G. Longwell V.F.W. Post #5803 Ladies Auxiliary.

Alice is survived by a very special son and daughter in law, Steve (Chris) Boley of Van Wert; brothers, Gary (Wanda) Baker of Van Wert and John Baker of Maryland; sisters, Lena (Ron) Partin of Kentucky and Naomi (Herb) Klein of Pennsylvania; she also leaves behind her two beautiful and loving granddaughters, Nicole (Adam) Kaehr of Decatur, Indiana and their children, Landon, Drew, and Alaina, and Reonna (Nathan) Karcher of Van Wert and their children, Jaelynn and Adelynn; and her beloved Shih Tzu, Abby.

In addition to her parents and husband, Alice was preceded in death by a son, Brent Alan Boley; a daughter, Susan Elaine Boley; brothers, Arnie Baker and Neal Willey; sister, Mary Zissimos; and her step mother, Naomi (Shaefer) Baker.

She dearly loved her granddaughters and enjoyed time spent with them and her great grandchildren. Alice loved her family, cooking, camping, and especially blue gill fishing in Minnesota. She always felt Minnesota and Michigan were God's country and when you see a cardinal, think of her because she's watching you.
