Sister Christine (Rose Paul) Boesch, OSF, 83, of Holy Family Hall Infirmary, Dubuque, Iowa, died at 9:05 p.m. Monday, March 8, 1999, at Holy Family Hall.

Memorial services will be at 1 p.m. Friday, March 12, 1999, at Mount St. Francis Chapel, Dubuque, with burial in Mount Calvary Cemetery, Dubuque.

She was born on February 7, 1916, in Dubuque, Iowa, daughter of Hubert and Christina (Digmann) Verbugt, and was adopted by Frank and Elizabeth (Wider) Boesch.

Sister Christine taught mostly in the junior high grades in the congregation's schools in Iowa and Illinois, for more than 20 years. She taught in high school during her last years of active ministry, the latest being Columbus in Waterloo, Iowa. When she retired to Holy Family Hall, visits from former students were frequent.

She made her first profession of religious vows on Sept. 15, 1934, and her final profession on Aug. 10, 1940.

Surviving are two sisters-in-law, Loretta Powers, of East Dubuque, Ill., and Emily Boesch, of Sherman Oaks, Calif.; nieces and nephews; and her Franciscan Sisters, with whom she spent 64 years of life.

Memorials may be given to the Sisters of St. Francis at Mount St. Francis.
