w/o 1st, George J Busboom (1892-1930), organizer and 2nd president of the Carthage Marble Corporation, 2nd widower Luke J Boggess with two sons.
Birth: 2nd of three known children in DuBois, Pawnee County, Nebraska
Grew up in DuBois with her older brother Leo, playing the piano for the silent movies at the KP Hall and helping father hang wall paper (later in the 1930s she wallpapered some rooms at 1218 Maple in Carthage). Moved with her best girlfriend to Califorina. Her friend, Helen, stayed in California making a career at Unversity of California at Los Angles (UCLA), whom I contacted upon Muriel's death, she revealing Muriel had altered her birth date in the family Bible, so she provided correct birth year as 1897.
Married and lost 1st husband George to a horrific plane crash at Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1930. Re-married in 1932 and drove her three 'charges' in the 1930s & '40s, to Sagamont Springs, and Redings Mill south of Joplin for swimming, also to Carthage's Central Park, Carter's Park and to Lakeside Park west of Carthage spending several summers in Burley's camp on White Iron Lake, Ely, Minnesota, and at Coolbrook east of Carthage. Her nephew, Leo's son, Stan would come and visit also spending part of his honeymoon in our Maple street home. Muriel moved her mother and sister, Vera, from Dubois, Nebraska in the early 1960s into one of her rental houses near her 615 Euclid home in Carthage.
Muriel was widowed the second time in 1974 then greatly enjoyed her cousin Isabelle Graham of Sabetha, Nemaha county, Kansas spending Christmas holidays in Carthage with her family, with granddaughter who would go get Isabelle, and with her three great grandchildren which included Eddie who died young.
Death: at her home, 615 Euclid in Carthage, Jasper County, Missouri late night before daughter's 59th birthday.
