Boots was born Sept. 10th, 1928 on the family farm in Plainview, Nebraska to Wolter & Beth Wiegand and passed away Feb. 13th, 2020 at Chaplaincy Hospice House in Kennewick, Wa. Her family moved to Kennewick in 1935 where she started school at Bethlehem Lutheran School and switched to Public School in 4th grade, graduating from Kennewick High in 1946. Boots loved roller skating and spent most of her teenage years at the roller rink. After graduation she worked at The Dime Store and a clothing store in downtown Kennewick. She met Arthur Goebel in 1947 and they were married in 1948. Their daughter Loreen was born in 1949 and son Arthur Jr. in 1953. Boots found her love of bowling and joined several bowling teams, winning many trophys. She also loved playing horse shoes. Boots worked in the office of Consolidated Freightway in Kennewick before going to Payroll for the Kennewick School District and working there until the family moved to Pendleton, Oregon in 1963. Her love of bowling inspired them to buy a house across the street from the bowling alley in Pendleton which meant more bowling and more trophys. Boots worked at Kern's Furniture Co. in Payroll, Pioneer Title and payroll for Blue Mountain Community College. Art and Boots divorced and in 1968 she met her soulmate and love of her life, Donald Narragon. They were members of the Pendleton Eagles and the Eagles Camping group. They loved doing things with friends, card parties, fishing, playing horse shoes, traveling and enjoying life. After retirement in 1988 they spent their winters in Yuma, Arizona and summers in Pendleton going to their McDonald's coffee group several times a week. Don unexpectedly passed away in 2010 after 42 years of marriage. Boots decided to move back to Kennewick to live with her daughter and son in law. She started a Kennewick High School Class of 46 coffee group at McDonalds which met twice a week. She had 10 wonderful years with her daughter and son in law. She loved meeting with her Class of 46 and sharing such wonderful memories. As the Class began to dwindle it didn't take Boots long to invite the other coffee groups at McDonalds to her table and soon the coffee group grew again with new friends. Boots is predeceased by her husband Don Narragon, parents Wolt and Beth Wiegand, siblings Wilbur Wiegand, Arthur Wiegand and Lucille Winkler. Son Arthur Goebel Jr and Granddaughter Mary Perryman Summers. She is survived by her daughter Loreen (Don) Snider of Kennewick, Wa. Grandson Kelly Perryman (Jayme) of Boise, Idaho Granddaughters Diana Snider, April Snider (Shane) of Spokane, Wa and Grandson Justin Snider of Kennewick. Seven Great Grandchildren and eight Great Great Grandchildren. A special thanks to the staff at Chaplaincy In-Home Health Care for their help with Mom over the past 6 months and the nurses at Chaplaincy Hospice House and the loving care of her caregiver Teddie. Services will be held at Burns Mortuary, Pendleton Oregon on Friday Feb 21st at 11 AM with gathering later at The Pendleton Eagles Lodge. Burns Mortuary of Pendleton is in charge of arrangements.

Dear Don,
I'm sorry to read of the loss of your loving wife of so many years. My niece Billie Ann Hyatt of AZ said she met you and Boots a few years ago when they were out in their RV. Sending condolences and God's blessings.

Boots lived a long and fun life. She can now rest in peace without pain and remembering life as she aged.

God is good and has now taken Boots to a peaceful place.

My God Bless you Loreen and Don.

Loreen and Don,
Sorry to hear of Boots passing. I didn't know your Mom well, but she always seemed to be happy and have a smile on her face. I am sure there was quite a reunion in heaven with Don. You were blessed to have her for so many years.
Barb and Bob Swart

I’m sorry to hear that Boots has passed away. I worked with Boots at BMCC – she in the Business Office and me in the Science Department. Whenever I had a question, Boots always answered it in a cheerful and timely manner. I enjoyed working with her. My sympathy goes out to her family.
