Evelyn Lorraine Boosey

Evelyn L. Boosey, age 105, passed away peacefully Saturday March 30th, 2024, in Barrington.

Evelyn was born February 5th, 1919, in Chicago IL and was raised in Chicago. She was introduced in 1940 and married John Boosey January 31st, 1942, and lived happily together for 63 years. During the war Jack and Evelyn lived in Baltimore as he worked for Glen L. Martin building B-26 bombers. After the war they moved to Milwaukee and then back to Chicago to be near family. They moved to Elmhurst to raise a family in 1957 and then retired to Ft. Lauderdale Florida in 1991. They enjoyed many friends while spending their children’s inheritance at the horse tracks.

Evelyn spread love everywhere she went and had such a pleasant demeanor. Many people called her “their best friend”. There was a certain strength about her that could not be shaken even through 50 days of hospice and her quiet strength, courage and faith just shined. In her mind it was just something else the human condition throws at you but her spirit never budged a millimeter through it all.

She is survived by her sons Robert Boosey and Ronald (late Mary) Boosey, grandchildren Geoffrey (Stacey) Boosey, Jennifer (Greg) Markway, Michael Boosey and great grandchildren, Bea, Max and twins Josephine and Rose. She will be missed dearly by all who knew her.

Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband John, her siblings, Charles, Raymond, Bud and Maryanne.

Visitation will be held April 6th, 2024, at Davenport Funeral Home, 149 West Main Street (Lake Cook Road), Barrington IL. Visitation 1pm to 4pm. Services will begin at 4 pm.
