Boni L. Peerenboom Passes Away

Boni L. Peerenboom, age 67 died at St. Elizabeth Memorial Hospital on July 15, 2010. She was born in Oshkosh, WI on December 31st, 1942.

Boni owned Glen Valley Farm in Oshkosh where she spent her time with her beloved horses and dogs. Even though Boni hated cold weather, her favorite time of year started in March when the new foals would begin to arrive. She would spend hours watching the video camera to make sure she knew exactly when each foal was born. Throughout her life she opened her door to many people who shared her love of the farm and the horses. Boni was a big part of the Saddlebred Horse community and truly valued the many friends she has made throughout the years. In addition to Glen Valley Farm, Boni and her late husband Dick owned and operated The Fountain Tavern for many years. She had many friends throughout her time at The Fountain.

Boni is survived by her son Michael Peerenboom, his special friend Megan Kelly, her farm daughter Jill (Rich) Pascarella, niece Lisa (Bill) Busby, nephew Jason (Stacy) Peerenboom, sister Barb (Terry) Fletcher, and brother Bruce (Debbie) Stang, as well as many farm friends and workers.

She was preceded in death by her husband Richard G. Peerenboom and her parents Alex and Helen Stang.

Friends may call at Lake View Memorial Park, 2786 Algoma Blvd. on Tuesday, July 20th from 1 to 2:30 p.m. A family only burial will take place at 3 p.m.
