On June 2, 1972, Luanne married the love of her life, Loyd Glen Boham. She captured his heart while writing letters to him while he was in the service. Their loving marriage was blessed with three children: Dayna Jo, Loyd Bart, and Travis Dale. Luanne loved making a difference, therefore she taught elementary education for 22 years.

Luanne also shared her love of her Lord and Savior as she taught many years of Sunday School as well. Luanne had many hobbies, but she truly loved to work in her flower garden and yard which brought her great pride. For years she planted a vegetable garden to help feed her family. She always liked to be outside enjoying the sunlight, birds, butterflies and any other wildlife. Even more precious to her were her own kids and grandkids. She gave the very best hugs and always went out of her way to make everyone feel loved and special. She always had family gatherings for all to enjoy. The happiness and joy she brought to her family and friends will be missed beyond measure. Luanne was preceded in death by her parents and father-in-law, Harold Boham.
