Ruth Jane Boland (nee Fellows), age 91, formerly of Peoria, passed away peacefully Sunday, May 27, 2012, with family at her side.
She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., to Wesley G. and Florence Waters Fellows.
She was the beloved wife for 60 years of the late Francis P. Boland Jr.; devoted mother of Dr. Francis P. III (deceased), Peter W. (Pat) and Christopher M. (Tiffany); loving grandmother of Jackie, Francis P. IV, Peter J. "P.J.," Martha Jane, Heather, Ashley, James and Rory; and proud great-grandmother of Ashley, Genevieve, Rian, Madison, Avery, Paige, Aurora and Teague.
She was a longtime resident of Peoria, Ill., Westtown, Pa., and Jupiter, Fla., most recently residing in Westlake, Ohio, for the last three years.
She was the greatest wife and mother, committed in every way to the only four men in her life.
She thoroughly enjoyed the company of many friends and extended family, rarely missing a family occasion, party or chance at a vacation or trip.
She is now blissfully reunited with the love of her life, her first baby, FPBIII, whom she missed every day for the last 38 years; her parents; her brothers; and many other special souls loved and never forgotten by her.
A Mass of Christian burial will celebrate her bountiful life on Monday, June 18, 2012, at 10 a.m. at St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church on North University Street and Northmoor Road in Peoria, Ill. Internment will follow in Resurrection Cemetery in Peoria, Ill. Friends may call on family between 9 and 10 a.m. Monday at the church. Arrangements are by Jenkins Funeral Chapel in Westlake, Ohio.
