Mrs. Boone resided in Pearl from 1957 to 2003, when, following the death of her husband, Chesteen Boone, she moved to Forest to live with her daughter. A devoted mother and grandmother, she delighted in spending time with her family. She was a member of Antioch Baptist Church in Pearl and spent many years as a waitress for several area restaurants. Some years later her love for children led her to a career in the daycare field. She often commented that although she enjoyed serving others in the food industry, the years spent caring for children were truly her favorite times.

Survivors include children, Beth Moak, Kenneth L. Boone (Susan), Keith Boone (Jana), and Kathy Drummonds (Sam); 17 grandchildren; 38 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren; and her feline companion, Matilda.
