Glynn Boultinghouse Wall

April 30, 1920 — November 27, 2019

Glynn Maxine was born to Mack Leland Boultinghouse and Ethel West Hall Boultinghouse on April 30, 1920 in Marble Falls, Texas. She graduated from Marble Falls High School.

She went to Austin to work after graduation. In 1942, she took and passed a Civil Service exam. She was sent to mechanics’ school in San Antonio. After training, she was assigned to Kelly Field in San Antonio where she received further training. She was then sent to be a member of the Plexi glass unit on Kelly Air Base.

In Nov. 1944, she was selected to be transferred to Station X. Due to World War II, no one knew where Station X was until they arrived at the location. She was assigned to Hickam Field, which is on the island of Oahu, one of the Hawaiian Islands. Hickam Field was next to Pearl Harbor. She returned to the mainland states on Dec. 25, 1945.

She married Morris Wall of Spicewood on Sept. 25, 1947. They lived off Mormon Mill Road near Marble Falls until 1951. Due to the drought, they moved to Oklahoma seeking grass for their cattle. They returned to the Burnet area in 1957 when the drought was over. She and Morris raised race horses for a while.

After Morris died of a heart attack on March 3, 1980, Glynn and her mother moved into a mobile home on the property Glynn and Morris had purchased west of Burnet. She moved a hunter’s cabin on the property, added some rooms to it and continued to live in that house until her death. She loved animals and at different times she raised and sold miniature donkeys, cattle, cats, and birds. She had birds of all kinds: parrots, cockatiels, parakeets, pigeons, love birds, chickens, ducks, geese, peacocks, doves, and guineas. She was lovingly known as the “Bird Lady” to some.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Mack and Ethel Boultinghouse; her husband of 33 years, Morris; her brother, Lester; and her sister, Fern Bingham.

Glynn was never blessed with children of her own, but she and Morris helped raise several young men in the Burnet area. She is survived by her faithful ranch hand, Fidel Mancera and many cousins. She was a faithful member of the Vandeveer Street Church of Christ in Burnet and she will be greatly missed by her church family.

A funeral service was held Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019 in the Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home Chapel in Burnet, Texas. Burial took place at Smithwick Cemetery.
