Sarah Mae Boyce

 

Sarah Mae Boyce, age 85, of Merriam, KS, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 19th, 2023 at Advent Medical Center surrounded by her family.

Sarah was born on December 3rd, 1937 in LaCygne, KS to Charles and Sadie Louise Holman. She married the love of her life Kenneth “Bruce” on March 28th, 1956 and later welcomed 3 sons. She was a member of Rosedale Baptist Church then Willard Ave Baptist Church. On most Sunday’s after church you could see her racing home to prepare for Sunday lunch with the family. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and her many dogs. Sarah took lots of trips to Branson, whether it be with her girlfriends or Bruce, every year to enjoy the shows and the atmosphere. She and Bruce went on many vacations, but Branson always seemed to call her back.

Sarah is preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth Bruce Boyce; parents, Charles and Sadie Holman; brother, Bradley Holman; son, Charles Boyce and his wife Deborah Boyce; and great-grandson Brayden Boyce.

Survivors include her sons; Robert and Steven (Tina); eight grandchildren, Shanda (Steve), Christina, Amber (Cody), Bobby Jr, Mickey (Stacey), Tara (Dan), Craig and Sarah; niece Kim(Evan); and 13 great-grandchildren.
