Alice Marie Boysen was born July 27, 1929, to John and Anna (Fleischman) Wieling. She attended Union Grove No. 3 country school through fifth grade then attended sixth through eighth grade at St. Mary’s Catholic School in Danbury, IA. She graduated from St. Patrick’s High School with the class of 1947. Alice was then employed at Farmer’s Saving Bank in Danbury for three years.

Alice married Melvin A. Boysen on February 6, 1951, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Danbury with her brother Rev. Raymond Wieling officiating. From this union they were blessed with ten children. The couple started farming on Dutch Hollow, north of Danbury, in June 1952 until July 1998 when she and Melvin moved to Danbury.

Among the important things in her life were her family, her Catholic faith and devotion to the Rosary, Scapular and St. Padre Pio. Alice made numerous chain rosaries and cord rosaries. She gifted them to family, relatives, friends, missions and sent them overseas. Alice especially enjoyed her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Survivors include ten children: Jean Casteel of Gretna, NE, Bill (Karen) Boysen of Alliance, NE, Bob Boysen (Evelyn Stevens) of Battle Creek, IA, Pat (Tom) Knutson of St. Paul, NE, Shirley Boysen of Danbury, IA, Linda (Kevin) Simmons of Mapleton, IA, Dick Boysen of Danbury, IA, Babe (Jerry) McBride of Danbury, IA, Tony (Mary) Boysen of Ida Grove, IA and Ken (Kim) Boysen of Danbury, IA; two sisters: Dorothy (Vince) Boyle of Danbury, IA and Marian “Cat” Trucke of Danbury, IA; 36 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.
