Charlene Ann Boehm

February 12, 1952 - December 24, 2019

Charlene Ann Boehm, 67, of Oswego, IL. and formerly of Elgin, IL. passed away peacefully on December 24, 2019 at Delnor Community  Hospital after a four year long battle with cancer.  Charlene was born February 12, 1952 in Cicero, IL. the daughter of William and Dolores Palshis.  She was united in marriage to Douglas Boehm on August 26, 1972 in Algonquin, IL. 

Charlene Boehm lived her life in an active, passionate, and faithful manner.  Her many joys included family, friends, neighbors, and church.  She was a woman of strong principles and believed in showing them through actions not just words.  Education was important to her, so she was very proud to be the first female in her family to graduate college when she achieved a Bachelors of Science from Northern Illinois University.  She carried this passion of learning to her work life when she taught math at Hoffman Estates High School, Gifford Street High School, and finished up at South Elgin High School.  However, she spent the bulk of her career as a software developer and project manager at AT&T Bell Labs/Lucent Technologies.

Throughout her life, walking with Christ and contributing to his work were also of central importance.  She was a long-time member of Christ the Lord Lutheran Church in Elgin, IL, where she was a Sunday school teacher, youth group leader, and was active with church council & leadership committees.  When she moved to Oswego, IL, she continued her commitment to serving God at Bethany Lutheran Church in Batavia, IL.  There she served on the church council for 8 years including president for part of that tenure.  She also participated in personnel committee, outreach committee, and most recently served as chairwoman of the pastoral call committee.

Last, but not least, was her belief that family and friends are paramount.  She was always willing to listen and help others.  She loved traveling, going to baseball games, and going to social dinners.  She was truly blessed to have developed so many meaningful relationships and life-long friends.  We will all miss her dearly, but her spirit will live on through us.

Charlene is survived by her loving husband of over 47 years, Douglas Boehm; two daughters, Jillian (Alan Krzesinski) Boehm and Lisa (Brandon) Sterenchuk; three grandchildren, Madeline, Colin and Olivia Sterenchuk;  her mother, Dolores Palshis;  one sister, Bonnie Palshis; one brother, Randy (Beverly) Lawson; numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and extended family.

She was preceded in death by her father, William Palshis and her brother, Michael Palshis.

Visitation will be held from 4:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M. on Friday, January 3, 2020 at Moss Family Funeral Home, 209 S. Batavia Ave. Batavia, IL. 60510.  Funeral Service will be at 11:00 A.M. on Saturday, January 4, 2020 at Bethany Lutheran Church, 8 South Lincoln St., Batavia, IL. 60510.  She will lie in state at the church from 10:00 A.M. until the time of the service.   Interment will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Bethany Lutheran Church, 8 South Lincoln St. Batavia, IL. 60510.

  • Jessica (Moellendorf) Himmelreich Sending my love and condolences to the entire Boehm Family. Mrs Boehm was just an incredible mentor to me on my spiritual path throughout middle school and high school. I will also treasure my memories of our service trips and youth group laughs. She was a truly amazing woman.
  • Barbara Lawrence Char was a lady that put her into whatever she did. Before the family moved to Batavia, they were members of Christ the lord Lutheran in Elgin. She put her heart into all they did CTL. She will be missed by many but she is with her Lord, free of pain and suffering. She is in my prayers as s her family. Barb Lawrence
  • Luann Lamp I remember Char from CTL from the time when both girls were born. My deepest sympathies to you, Doug, Jillian, Lisa and your families.
  • Rev Jeff and Gail Mikyska So sorry to hear this. Blessings of comfort to Doug and the family. Her love will always be with you.
  • Kathy Marcinkowski Hintt I am sorry to hear of the loss of an old friend from high school. We aslo spent many hours together all thru girl scouts. Charlene was a great person. So sorry for her families loss.p
  • John Weidner and Linda Miller Doug, Jill, Lisa and Char's Family, We want to express our condolences to all o f you. Char was a one-of-a-kind person, devoted to her family, friends and community in ways that are rarely seen. I remember staying with Doug and Char in their home on several occasions, but one occasion sticks out in my mind. We had a bad accident on the interstate and John had to return to Detroit for work, so Doug and Char invited me to stay with them in their home as I waited for repairs to our car. What was supposed to be 2 days turned into 5 or 6 days, and I got to know Doug and Char quite well. Funny, engaging, filled with joy and purpose are just a few things I learned about them. What's so cute about Doug and Char together was how they loved each other tenderly and lifted each other up. Definitely role models for relationships! Char's devotion to the mission of Jesus Christ on Earth was also exemplary, such a dedicated volunteer in her community. Char's spirit will live on in me because I have filled in my own definition of "Grace" with her picture. I pray that all who were touched by Char in this life will carry her gentle and generous spirit forward. Sending much love to you all, John and Linda
  • Shelli and Nate hopley family Momma B was like a second mom. She will be forever missed. I moved from Elgin more than 20 years ago and still my husband and kids know char and doug. I'm grateful for all the years of friendship and the last 2 very special thanksgivings we spent together. Rest peacefully is heaven char. We will miss you always.
  • Diane Erickson How do I put into words what my dear friend of 28 years means to me and my entire family? Char was someone who loved the Lord, and through her actions, showed that love to all who knew her. Fred, the girls, and I were lucky enough to meet the Boehm family when we lived in Elgin, and our daughters became lifelong friends. Even when we moved back to Iowa, we worked hard to keep our friendship going, and I think we did a pretty good job. Over these last 4 years, Char fought so hard, and while I'm sure she had her moments, kept a very positive outlook and ultimately knew everything was in God's hands. We will treasure our memories of her, remember her beautiful smile and laughter, and keep her close in our hearts forever. Our prayers for Doug, Jillian, and Lisa will continue. We love all very much.
  • Nicki Weiser Char was the most loving, caring, faithful person. She always treated me like a special family member. As a kid, my parents along with Doug and Char made sure that we could remain friends after moving. They committed to many visits for us kids back and forth between Iowa and Illinois and I am truly grateful to all of them for this! My children loved when Char and Doug would visit, they were always willing to get on the floor and play with them. Our hearts are heavy with loss of our dear friend! We love you! Praying for Doug, Jill and Lisa and all who love her!
