Boody married Capt. Edward Siegel on Sept. 25, 1945. Siegel is a former chief of staff at Champlain Valley Hospital and was instrumental in the modernization of the Plattsburgh YMCA. Their love story unfolds in "Memoirs of a Wartime Romance: The Story of Mr. Bops and Miss Boo" by Jane Siegel Whitmore and Andrea Siegel Feinberg. (Photo provided)
