AlVera Mae Hubbard was born on March 28, 1916 in Durand, WI, to Bert and Ruth (Catt) Hubbard. When she was a young child, her family moved to Thorp where she was raised and received her education at the Busy Bee country school, in the Town of Worden, and at Thorp High School. After completing her education, AlVera worked at the Soo Café, in Thorp, as a waitress, and also did domestic work for people in the area.

She was united in marriage to Harvey J. Boie on May 15, 1940 at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Stanley. They farmed in the Town of Worden, where they raised their family and lived until Harvey retired in 1977, at which time they built a home in Thorp. Her husband died on March 2, 1997. AlVera resided in her home until moving to Morgan Plaza in 2002. She later moved to Rosewood Villa in 2004 and then to Oakbrook Health and Rehab in June of 2005.

AlVera had many interests, but especially loved attending all of her grandchildren’s sporting events, as well as Thorp High School sporting events, where she was honored as the Thorp High School Fan of the Year. She also enjoyed baking, cooking, and crocheting Afghans for her family.
