Marian “Gae” Boundy loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother passed away at her home surrounded by her loving family on September 29, 2013.
Gae was born July 3, 1937, in Quapaw, Oklahoma, to Marion Oliver and Zelma Sill Ingle. She moved at the age of nine with her parents and three younger brothers to McGill, Nevada, where three more siblings were born. She was a life-long resident since that time.
Gae started working when she was old enough to do ironing and household chores for neighbors in the community. During her late teenage years, she worked in the laundry at the White Pine County Hospital and then was employed at the First National Bank of Ely for 27 years before retiring.
Her fondest memories of growing up at the end of the Great Depression were: Early mornings at the kitchen table with her mother reading and discussing the bible, and her dad letting her put makeup on him and curl his hair just to watch her laugh.
On March 15, 1958, Gae married the love of her life Grant “Pete” Boundy and together they had three children.
She was a mother figure and mentor to her younger siblings and a treasured mother to her own three children, seven grandchildren, seven step grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren, thirteen step great grandchildren and one step great-great grandchild and everyone else calling her Grandma.
Gae is survived by her husband, Pete of McGill, Nevada, her three children: Bill (Debbie) Boundy, Lori (Mike) Gill of Spring Creek, Nevada, Donna (Walter) Egbert of McGill; Grandchildren: Ben (Shanann) DelGrande of Ely, Nevada, Breonna (Sam) Hankins of McGill, Mindi (Dave) Wanner, Jessica and Jarette Boundy of Spring Creek, John (Sonia) Carson of Green River, Wyoming; Sisters: Jan DeLeon and Bonnie (Paul) Carter, brothers Larry (Donna) Ingle all of Spring Creek, David (Nancy) Ingle of Mesquite, Nevada; Sister-in-Law Mary Ingle of Ely, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews.
Gae is preceded in death by her parents: Marion and Zelma Ingle, brothers: Mike Ingle and Charles “Bud” Ingle and granddaughter: Heather Carson.
She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. Granddaughter Breonna always told Grandma, “I love you to heaven and back, Grandma.” She speaks for all of us.
A celebration of Gae’s life will be held for family and friends Friday, October 4, 2013 at 1:00 P.M. at Mountain Vista Chapel, 450 Mill Street, Ely, Nevada, followed by a luncheon at All Aboard Café & Inn 220 E 11th Street, Ely.
