Ann Kirsten Boger

Ann Boger went to be with the Lord on September 6th, 2013, after a long, brave battle with cancer.

Ann was born in San Jose, California to Paul and Marilyn Jacobson on February 22nd, 1954. As a young girl Ann loved playing cowboys with her three younger brothers, Bruce, Ray and Karl. She knew she wanted to be a teacher from a young age and would play "school" with whoever

she could rally up to be her students.

In junior high, Ann moved to Nevada County and attended the old Seven Hills, graduating as the salutatorian. She graduated from Nevada Union High School in 1972 and went on to get her teaching credential from Westmont College (Santa Barbara) and Chico State.

Ann met her husband Orville at Red Bluff Church of God and they were married less than a year later at Calvary Bible Church on March 19th, 1978. Together Orville and Ann had four children: Brooke, Heather, Heidi and Brett. Ann loved spending time with her family, traveling all over Europe with the N.U. choir, scrap booking and of course, teaching. She spent over 30 years teaching for the Grass Valley School District, countless years teaching Sunday School and endless hours helping her kids with homework and reading to her grandchildren.

She was a woman whose strong faith was evident through her honesty, grace towards others, and dedication to all she held dear. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

A memorial service will be held at 5 p.m., Sunday, September 22nd at Diamond Arrow Christian Conference Center, 15742 N. Bloomfield Road, Nevada City, C.A. 95959, with a reception immediately following. Memorial contributions can be made to Diamond Arrow Christian Conference Center.
