Verona - Greg Allen Boehmer (aka Honey, Dad, Gregger, Greg, Uncle Greg, Poppy, Boehmsie, Boehms, Boehmer, Mr. Boehmer and Coach) passed away on November 10, 2022 at home in Verona, WI. The last four years of his life were spent on a courageous journey with Glioblastoma brain cancer. GBM claimed his life, but it never took away his spirit and positive attitude.

Greg was born in Rice Lake, WI on December 2, 1963. He graduated from St. Norbert College in 1986, where he met Annie, the love of his life, and studied math. Greg taught and coached for 32 years, the majority being at Oconto Falls Middle School and High School. Greg loved spending time with family, golfing, fishing, playing cards, walking our dogs Macy and Lucy, and telling puns.

Greg leaves behind his wife of 35 years, Annie and their sons David (Hailey) and Brian (Kaci). He is also survived by siblings Steve (Joanie) and Lori (Jerry) Ryan, mother-in-law Eileen Grace, sisters and brothers-in law Kim Boehmer, Bernie Grace, Margie (Joe) Kizaur, Tom (Barbara Joe) Grace, Kathy (Tom) Miller, Meg (Jim) Hamilton, a niece "daughter" Michelle (Rikki) Srivastava, a nephew "son" Dan (Lauren) Kizaur, shared grandchildren Rowan and Delaney Kizaur and Leena Srivastava, many wonderful nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

Greg was preceded in death by his parents Bob and Kappy, brother Tim, father-in-law Tom Grace and sister-in-law Eileen Grace.

Always the educator, Greg has donated his body to Mayo Clinic. A celebration of life will be planned for the summer of 2023, date TBD.

We would like to thank Mayo Clinic doctors and nurses, Agrace Hospice, and Ryan Funeral Home for their wonderful care and assistance.

    I am Deborah Laws and I taught with Greg at Oconto Falls Middle School. Greg was a wonderful teacher. He was a real team player, and we all had some enjoyable times together in Management. He could keep us laughing with his corny jokes. I am saddened. The world has lost a great guy.

    Greg Boehmer's teaching/coaching is something that should be recognized on the OFHS Wall of Fame. He made learning easy. Inspiring many students in several different formats is what he did best. I'm certain he was also excellent in his personal life. I'm very sorry for your loss Boehmer family

  • 11/18/2022

    I never had you as a math teacher but I was always jealous of the kids that did have you. You were one of the main reasons I graduated thank you

  • 11/18/2022

    Our sympathies to Annie and the Boehmer family. Greg was a great friend and a strong and compassionate man. I never heard him complain about his cancer, and he always had a positive outlook on life. He was a great teammate playing softball and we always loved a good hand or two of sheepshead afterwards. My fondest memory was from a softball game where he was playing third base and I was the rover. We turned a 5-10-3 triple play that he predicted before the pitch was thrown. He will be missed by all. RIP Greg. Dale Krumrai

    Prayers and blessings to you Annie and your family during this time of healing. The Smile in one to light up the room, the kindness he had to share to the world was endless. Boehms will always be in our hearts. Rest peacefully my friend Childhood, (Rice Lake) grade school. Patrick "Bacon" Taylor

    My deepest condolences to Mr Boehmer's family. I was OFHS class of 2000 and he was by far the most adored and loved teacher there. He started the class off with a joke and made learning enjoyable. In life as an adult he taught us that our day is what we make it, share a smile and a laugh and it brightens everyone's day. He is missed, but his Laffy Taffy jokes, smile, and life lessons will always love on.

    I remember the memories growing up together. I especially remember how cool it was have older cousins. Some of the best were boating across Rice Lake to the lake house and dock the boat to come visit. Also, Christmas as Grandpa Boehmer's. You have been an inspiration of strength and positivity through this battle. Sending Prayers to Annie and your family for peace and healing. ~Karen Boehmer

    I had the opportunity to coach with Greg in 1993 as his volunteer assistant in 1993. Great experience. Later, he became my assistant in baseball. He positively influenced so many in the classroom, and on the athletic field. He was truly a legend in both. I do miss our talks on baseball and life, Rest In Peace, Greg.

    Mr. Boehmer, The man that taught me how to play cribbage in math class. A great teacher, basketball coach and person. My thoughts and prayers to the family. Pete Carney OFHS alumni 1999

  • 11/14/2022

    I can't believe he's gone...so incredibly sad, that he suffered from brain cancer for the last 4 years of his life. I wish I'd known. He was truly the most enthusiastic math teacher I have ever had, and his kindness & encouragement were unsurpassed, unstoppable!! ❤ He will truly be missed, remembered, & he made a difference. I went on to take AP Calculus in high school, Statistics in graduate school, and I published a correlational psychology research study of mine in college--he would have loved my mathematical achievements! He was an inspiration! -Rachel Richter

  • 11/14/2022

    Greg was a role model to myself and countless others. I had the privilege of having him as my high school physics teacher. He was a major reason for me becoming a high school science teacher myself. He even mentored me as I student taught with the science department at OFHS. I will do my best to carry on his love of life and teaching with my students to pay my respects to him and his family. RIP Greg

  • 11/14/2022

    So very sorry for your loss. My memories of Greg, although distant, are wonderful. (You probably didn't know he and I were "married" on a Junior Acheivement trip in high school!) He was always a very special guy and I've enjoyed hearing about the life you created over the years. RIP Greg!

    Why did the monkey fall out of the tree? Because it was dead. I will always remember Mr Boehmer telling that joke in 8th grade math. Also enjoyed being coached in basketball, playing cribbage before games and being taught Physics in high school. I loved his sense of humor. He will be missed.

  • 11/14/2022

    Mr. Boehmer was an amazing teacher. He cared about his students and taught math in a dynamic way that helped students understand it. I remember struggling with Geometry and he was so patient with me and willing to help. He taught me and then my younger sister and brother. We were lucky to have someone who cared as much as he did. May God bless his family and loved ones with comfort and peace.

    Greg was always the positive person as a coach and teacher at Oconto Falls. My sons Nicholas and Lucas Yogerst had the opportunity to experience having Greg as baseball and football coach and I as a baseball coach with Greg at the Falls high School. His constant encouragement to the players set a great example for all even when the results on the field of play were not the most successful. Greg will be missed by many. Gerry Yogerst

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

James S. | July 2020

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Lynda R. | July 2020

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Michael M. | July 2020

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
