She attended the Columbus city schools and was graduated from the Cherokee County High School in 1922. The following fall she entered Bell Memorial Hospital as a student nurse, graduating in 1925 at the age of nineteen. For several years she was employed at her profession in Joplin, Mo., Kansas City, Mo., and Des Moines, Iowa.
On November 25, 1926, she was united in marriage with Alva A. Boston of Oswego. Betty Joan Boston, now four years of age was born of this union. Mrs. Boston passed away on Sunday, October 6, 1935 at the age of 29 years, 10 months and 2 days.
