Mary L. Bova

Mary L. Bova

Mary L. Bova, 92, of Lawrence, KS passed away on September 13, 2022. Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Gene. She is survived by her daughter, Jeanne (Bill), John (Sharri), Matt (Linda) Joe (Joan); and 14 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. 

Mary was the middle of Paul and Vina Allie’s 13 children, all of whom preceded her in death.  She grew up in Saint Paul, MN and later moved to Kansas with her husband and family. She loved gardening and always generously shared her bounty.  She was a wonderful and adventurous cook who welcomed all to sit at the table - or help themselves to the refrigerator. Mary also loved fishing, both with her husband, Gene, and with her many grandchildren, who she delighted in teaching. In her later years she was stricken with macular degeneration and then Alzheimer’s, handling both with strength and grace. Her family was of utmost importance to her and she has left a lasting legacy of priceless memories. 

A small, private family service will be scheduled. Should you wish to honor Mary’s memory, the family suggests the following: organizations that support the visually impaired (particularly macular degeneration), organizations that support the welfare of children ( if needing a recommendation), or National Public Radio.
