Obituary

Willene was born in San Angelo, TX on August 28, 1944 and raised on the family Lacy Creek Ranch in west Texas between San Angelo and Midland. She graduated salutatorian from Sterling City high School, and attended TCU where she received a BA in English.

While attending TCU, she met the love of her life, Allen Dickson Boger Jr on a blind date. She was the Sig Ep Sweetheart at TCU. Upon graduating from TCU, Willene taught in Sterling City.

On June 24, 1967, Willene and Allen married and began their life together in Austin where they resided and raised their two sons, Malcolm Lee and Rhett Allen. In 1996, Allen and Willene moved to Argyle TX and resided there until 2011. They moved back to Austin and lived at Longhorn Village.

Willene had many hobbies and pass times. Some of these included her church, piano, traveling, dancing, family and UT football.

While living in Austin, she attended the First Presbyterian Church where she worked with the Joy Class. During her time in Argyle, she attended Trinity Presbyterian Church in Denton. While serving on the board of the St. Andrew Soup Kitchen, she was active in the ministry of serving/assisting people involved with the kitchen. She was also part of the Book Club at Trinity Presbyterian.

She was an avid piano player. She began playing as a young girl and continued playing until her health did not allow. She had the privilege to play with the San Angelo Symphony at the young age of 12. She played the organ accompanied by her mother at First Presbyterian church in Sterling City.

Travel was a joy with the entire family especially upon retirement. Willene and Allen traveled near and far but she had several places that were very dear to her heart. Musicals, Broadway shows, plus Macy Day Parades made New York City, a favorite. Making her feel like she was part of her favorite musical, South Pacific, and visiting Tahiti and Bora Bora were precious. Some of her favorite memories included mishaps during travel.

Beginning at a young age, Willene became a poised graceful dancer. She danced everything from ballet to tap then ballroom as a couple with Allen.

Whether being on the Lacy Creek Ranch, Austin, Argyle or Vernon, Willene took great pleasure in spending time with her family. Until her health declined, she enjoyed visiting the ranch to see her brothers and their families. Visiting and being part of Shaylee and Brance's (her grandchildren's) lives was a highlight. Family but not blood was important as well including the late Mary Alexander, Cynthia Cleveland, Verna Sanders, Linda Deckard, Lakisha Swan, Nora Maposa, and Lisa Limuel. Her amazing trainers (Joel Hargett and Nichol Hampton) and massage therapist (Lynda Weaver) impacted her life with many laughs and strengthening her.

Willene leaves behind her husband of 51 years, Allen of Longhorn Village. Her two sons Malcolm Lee and wife Buffy Boger of Dickens TX and Rhett Allen of Pflugerville TX. Her pride and joy were her two grandchildren: Shaylee Renee and Brance Logan Boger both of Dickens TX. Her brothers Larry Glass and wife Mary Helen and Lynn Glass and wife Helen of Big Spring TX. Her nieces and nephews: Robert and wife Brooke Glass and family of Spur TX, Jeff Glass and family of Keller TX, Elizabeth Staggs and husband Shelby and family of Lubbock TX, Wesley and wife Ashley Glass and family of Sterling City TX and Jamie Ruth Walker and husband Baylor and family of Big Spring TX.

Preceded in death were her parents James David and Willie Key Glass and two grandchildren: Katherine Jo and Brayden Lee Boger.
