    Boelsche, Ralph A. and Ida B.

  • Notes 
    • Ida attended the Industry, Texas, public schools, graduated from Sam Houston Normal Institute in Huntsville, and received her teaching certificate from Southwest Teachers College. She taught school at Industry, Schoenau, County Line and Raccoon Bend. She retired to her hometown of Industry later in life. She was a member of the Industry United Methodist Church.

      After Ida and Ralph married, they made their home in the Heights area of Houston. During this time she and her sister, Sallie Hackfield, spent much time together while their husbands were beginning their dental and medical careers. Ralph was a member of a dance orchestra named the “Collegiates.” They would spend many nights on the town, enjoying the music and social activity. In 1941 Ralph and Ida moved to a brick house they had built southeast of downtown Houston, remaining there until 1951 when they moved to the Memorial area.

      While in Houston, Ida had many friends. Her main interest, however, was her family. She enjoyed spending weekends in Industry, checking on the cows with her brother Dutch, fishing in the family ponds and saltwater fishing with her brother Pat. She also enjoyed the holidays and preparing big dinners for the family. [1]
