Marjorie Ann Boyse

Marjorie Ann Boyse

An informal memorial service is scheduled from 2-3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30, in the First Christian Church parlor for Marjorie Ann Boyse of Artesia.

Boyse, 84, joined her beloved, lifelong soul mate and husband, George, in their forever home Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015.

She was a member of First Christian Church.

Interment of Margie and George will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31, at 16 Springs Canyon Cemetery near Cloudcroft. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Terpening & Son Mortuary.

Margie was born March 27, 1931, in the mountains above Mayhill to Jeff and Fannie Campbell. She was raised in a hardworking family with a deep sense of love and respect for all of God’s creatures.

She was married to George Boyse on June 11, 1949, in Alamogordo. She lived her life as a loving wife and partner, mother, grandmother, sister, and mentor to a multitude of friends and family.

Margie had many interests in her life, from country music, beautiful flowers, and whispering pine trees to sewing and cooking, but most especially of all, she loved her family – especially the children. Each person she touched will cherish the precious gift of her love and care. Her life was a portrait of grace, beauty and compassion.

Survivors include daughters Sheila Phillips and husband Dwight of Artesia and Milda Goodlander and husband Jim of Edgewood; brother Frank Campbell of Cloudcroft; sisters Lucille Goodlander of Artesia and JoAnn Stickle of North Canton, Ohio; six grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; numerous great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her beloved Mopsy dog; and her husband, George, on May 20, 2009.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to CARC Inc., P.O. Box 1808, Carlsbad, N.M., 88221-1808; or a charity of choice.

Arrangements are under the direction of Terpening & Son Mortuary. Condolences may be expressed online at www.artesiafunerals.com.
