Boethin was born May 29, 1939 in St. Cloud to Herman and Catherine (Dickinson) Boethin. She worked for the U.S. Postal Service for 31 years in Washington, D.C. and later in the Twin Cities. Family was No. 1 for Boethin; she was always there for her family and others. She was always inclusive of others, thoughtful and thinking of others before herself. Nancy enjoyed reading and spent time at the Whitney Senior Center in St. Cloud (involved in two book clubs). She spent time volunteering with RSVP, Boys & Girls Club as well as the Sartell Community garden. She enjoyed politics and reading the New Yorker and National Geographic. Being educated and keeping up with learning new things and politics was very important to her; she had no regrets throughout her life.
