Francis Donovan “Don” Boehm, 100, of Rushville, IL passed away Monday morning, January 6, 2020 at his residence. He was born on April 14, 1919, in Rushville, Illinois. He was the youngest of 8 children born to William G. and Sophia Thudium Boehm. He was the last living family member of his generation.  As a youth, he worked in the family grocery and meat business. After graduating from Rushville High School, where he played trumpet in the school’s first band, he worked in St. Louis helping build airplanes for Curtis-Wright.  As his high school sweetheart Elizabeth Loring was about to begin her final year in college, Don was drafted into the Army during World War II, so they decided to marry that year on May 10, 1942 at the Rushville First Methodist Church. Sergeant Don Boehm worked as a mechanic preparing and repairing B-17 bombers for their missions against German targets while he was stationed in England.  After the war, Don and Liz lived in St. Louis where he worked as an engineer at McDonald-Douglas. They returned home to Rushville where he farmed for eight years before joining his father-in-law Clarence Loring at Rushville State Bank. He worked at the bank for thirty years, retiring as chairman of the board in 1991. He continued to serve on the board until 2011.  He spent many winter days in his basement workshop where he made furniture, clocks, and many other pieces of fine woodwork which fill his and his family’s homes and can also be seen at Worthington Funeral Home, the Schuyler Jail Museum, and the Princess Theater.  He is survived by his children Don Boehm (Mary) of Rushville, Becky Mann (Mike) of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Richard Boehm (Esther) of Rushville, and Steve Boehm (Esther) of Seguin, Texas.  He had 13 grandchildren: Beth Schimmel-Parker and Bob Schimmel; Carey Corrie and Corey Owens; Laura Mann, Emily Amirault and Jessica Mann; Angela Erickson, Peter Boehm, Thomas Boehm; Miguel Rincon, Cenaida Rincon-Gonzales, and Alberto Rincon. He had 16 great grandchildren: Sophia and Forrest Parker; Abby and Ryan Schimmel; James and Elizabeth Corrie, Sydney, Sadee, and Brock Owens; Fynn Collins-Mann; Lucius Erickson, Khloe Boehm, Aydan Urias, and Neva, Sofia, and Gabriel Rincon.  He was preceded in death by his wife Elizabeth and his eldest daughter, Susan Schimmel (Richard) of Champaign, Illinois, 3 brothers, William Boehm, Edward Boehm, Roy C. Boehm, 4 sisters, Alma Chipman, Rose Dean, Clarine Gillenwater, Pauline McCormick.  He was a member of the Rushville First United Methodist Church, Schuyler American Legion Post #4, Rushville Lodge #9 AF & AM and Rushville Commandery #56 Knights Templar.  He was an avid golfer, and he played a mean game of rummy, chess, checkers and dominoes. He had a gruff exterior, but it was merely a front for a beloved man with a heart of gold who dearly loved his family.  Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, January 11, 2020 at Worthington Funeral Home with Mr. David Haney officiating.  Interment will follow in Rushville City Cemetery with Military Services by Schuyler American Legion Post #4 and a U.S. Air Force Honors Detail.  Visitation will be held Friday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. with Masonic services to follow.  Memorials may be given to Schuyler Counseling & Mental Health In-Home Services or Scripps Park Golf Course.
