Addalene E. Boop, 100, formerly of Lewisburg, most recently residing in Jacksonville, Florida, entered into rest Sunday, Sept. 20, 2020, at Cathedral Gerontology Center, Jacksonville.
Addalene was born Nov. 4, 1919, in Beckley, West Virginia, the daughter of the late Grover L. and Sylvia Uversal (Huffman) Tayor. On July 10, 1936, she married Spencer D. Boop who preceded her in death in 1966.
While living in the Mifflinburg/Lewisburg area, she was employed in the housekeeping and laundry departments of Evangelical Community Hospital. After moving to Florida in 1967, she owned and operated Jewell Apartments in Jacksonville, until approximately 12 years ago.
She was a feisty, independent woman who was not afraid of anyone or anything. She believed that worrying was a waste of time and this trait probably attributed to her longevity. In her later years she enjoyed her time at Cathedral socializing and playing bingo.
She is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Connie and Ronald Scholvin of Northumberland, Pa. and Philene and Joe Alvarado of Jacksonville; six grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by two sisters, Genevieve Dreese and Emogene Boyer.
Private burial will be in the Buffalo Valley Church of the Brethren Cemetery, Mifflinburg.
