May 15 was proclaimed “Wanda Lambert Boush Day” in Alamo during a city meeting to honor Wanda Boush. The day named marked her 100th birthday. Many friends came to the May 3 Alamo City Commission meeting for the issuance of the special proclamation by Mayor Diana Martinez expressing pride in honoring the long-time resident of the Alamo Rose RV Resort. Boush, who has had a great love for the outdoors and traveling the world, was born May 15, 1922. She began traveling to Alamo from the Chicagoland area with her husband, Edward, as a winter visitor. They became winter visitors in 1985 as charter members of the then new Alamo Rose Park. She and Edward were married in in 1942 and shared 51 years of marriage until his death in 1993. She became a permanent resident in 1997. Over the years Boush has volunteered with helping several organizations, including the RGV Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic, the RGV Valley Symphony, the UTRGV Music Department and the Museum of South Texas History. Boush, who has a love for furry creatures, especially cats, having had nine of them, uses her creative endeavors to write poems and an annual Christmas newsletter. The spry centenarian was named “Citizen of the Year” in 2019 by the Alamo Chamber of Commerce. The selection called attention to her dedication for the welfare of others and animals, earning her the respect and affection of people of all ages. A party was held for her at the RV park in April before most of the Winter Texans headed north out of the Valley. She was also recognized by those at the park during its weekly “donut time.” Boush was also honored at Alamo’s 10th Annual Watermelon Festival where attendees sang Happy Birthday to her.
