   Margie was born on September 18, 1930 in LeMars, Iowa to Nicholas and Mae Thoma. On August 23, 1952, she married John L. Boden at St. Boniface Church. The two shared 67 years of marriage, until John passed away on June 15, 2020 in Sioux City.  She lovingly referred to him as “Johnny” and together they raised six children and adored their grandchildren and great grandchildren. Margie was a member of Blessed Sacrament/St. Michael Church for many years.


   More than anything, she cherished spending time with family, attending her children and grandchildren’s activities, playing bridge in several bridge groups, supporting our Catholic Schools, sewing, making afghans and holiday décor, decorating for every holiday, playing golf at the Sioux City Boat Club, and traveling with Johnny.


   She is survived by her children: Steve (Suzan), Mark (Kathy), Douglas (Susan), Michael (Shelley), Julie (Al), and Diane (Darrell); 14 grandchildren: Cassandra Boden, Brad Boden (Lindsey), Jenna Smith (Keenan), Christopher Boden, Ben Boden (Page), Daniel Boden (Colette), Laura Corbett (Chad), Nicholas Boden, Allison Boden, David Stubblefield (Myah), Matt Stubblefield, Andy Stubblefield, Tyler Alexander, and Kayla Alexander; twelve great-grandchildren: Briggs and Pierce Boden, Noah and Colton Kraft, Davis and Catherine Boden, Brighton and Fordham Boden, Avery and Harper Corbett, and Samson and Stella Stubblefield; sibling Lowell Thoma.


   She was preceded in death by her husband, John; her parents; her siblings: Kenneth (Ruth) Thoma, Connie (Leonard) Herrin; and a sister-in-law Joanne Thoma.


   The family would like to thank the staff at Holy Spirit Retirement Home, MercyOne, and Family Medicine for the care they gave Margie.
