Obituary: Donald H. Boscher



Donald H. Boscher, 84, Noblesville, died Aug. 8 at Copper Trace in Westfield. He was born Jan. 22, 1932 to Harry and Ellen (Dickinson) Boscher in Racine, Wisc.

Donald graduated from Racine High School in 1951 and the University of Wisconsin in 1955. He worked as a CPA and CFO for several corporations, retiring in 1985. Donald was a member of Noblesville First United Methodist Church, a 62-year member of Belle City Lodge No. 92 F&AM of Racine, Wisc., Scottish Rite Valley of Danville, Ill., and Zem Zem Shrine of Erie, Pa. He played clarinet in the Shriner’s marching band and the Shrine Circus. Donald enjoyed playing golf, camping, fishing, bowling and boating on Lake Erie. He was an avid reader who loved crossword puzzles, walking, traveling in his motor home and spending his retirement winters in Florida. Although he was very much a gentleman, he was a very competitive game player. Most of all, Donald was a loving husband, father and grandfather and was very proud of his children and grandchildren. His infectious smile and the twinkle in his eye will be missed.

He is survived by his wife, Beverly Metzger; children Karen (Tom) Whisler, David (Lisa) Boscher and Kathryn (David) Utley; grandchildren Lindsay Reinholt, Lauren Whisler, Michael Whisler, Nathan Boscher, Alek Utley, Haley Utley, MacKenzie Utley and Emma Utley; great-grandchildren Winnie and Archer Reinholt; sister Dorothy Spanske; many nieces, nephews and friends; step-children Richard (Sarah) Hale and Tamara Hale; step-grandchildren William Hale, Grace Hale and Emma Hale; members of the loving Schori family; and his cockapoo, Missy.

In addition to his parents, Donald was preceded in death by his loving first wife of 53 years, Ellen Marie Boscher, in 2009.
