She was born and raised in Richardton, North Dakota. Willie graduated in 1951 from Dickinson High School, Dickinson, North Dakota. She went to school as well for telephone operator schooling, and cake decorating at Flathead Valley Community College.

After Joe’s discharge, they returned to North Dakota to work on the family farm. In the mid-1950s Joe and Willie moved to Montana. She worked as the Marion postmaster for 24 years and owned and operated Marion General Store with Joe for 12 years. Prior to this they operated a service station. She was a member of National League of Postmasters and a 4-H leader.

Willie was preceded in death by her husband Joseph E. Boehm, daughter LaDonna Hodge, and grandson Patrick Hodge.
