Deacon Sammie Boman was born April 12, 1936 to the late Porter Boman Sr. and the late Willie L. Boman of Frankville. He departed this life Wednesday morning, Feb. 8, 2023, in his residence.
Sammie confessed Christ at an early age and joined Mt. Bethel Baptist Church. He was later joined in Holy Matrimony to Evangelist Lee Helen Boman of Frankville. To their union was born one son, Ray Charles Boman. Both his wife and son preceded him in death.
Deacon Boman moved to Illinois in the mid 60s where he served as a faithful leader and member of a mission in Braidwood, Ill., known as Marvelous in Our Eyes Church Center. He returned to Frankville in the late 90s to continue raising his family and working on his farm. He became a member of Whole Truth Church of God in Christ under the leadership of Supt. Solomon Smith, where he served as a choir member, faithful prayer warrior, an amazing singer, deacon, and continued to be very active and faithful until his death. Deacon Boman helped so many people throughout his life; he was always willing to lend a helping hand.
Although very quiet and gentle, Deacon Boman was mighty in strength. He loved everyone, and he didn’t meet any strangers. He enjoyed spending quality time with his family, especially his children and grandchildren. He also thoroughly enjoyed spending time on his farm tending to his cows and farming. He was known for his powerful, yet smooth gospel singing that would usher in the presence of God anywhere he sang. He was also known for being calm, peaceful, and a very sweet gentleman.
