Jaxon Liam Boomsma, age 7, of Yankton, South Dakota, died on Friday, April 14, 2017 as a result of a farm accident in Wessington, South Dakota.

Mass of Christian Burial is 10:30 AM, on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at St. Benedict Catholic Church in Yankton with Reverend Ken Lulf officiating. Burial will be in the Garden of Memories Cemetery in Yankton. Visitation is from 5:00 to 8:00 PM, on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at St. Benedict Catholic Church with a vigil service at 7:00 PM. Arrangements are under the direction of the Wintz & Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Yankton.

Pallbearers are A. John Boomsma, Terry Boomsma, Michael Boomsma, David Sutherland, Jeremy Brockmueller and Brad Mandery.

Jaxon was born May 5, 2009 in Yankton, South Dakota to Troy and Sarah (Sutherland) Boomsma. Jaxon's happy-go-lucky, larger than life, magnetic personality was mirrored by his infectious smile. Jaxon never met a stranger. His loving, sweet, mischievous personality shined through with endless smiles. Jaxon's comical nature and quick wit lit up the room. When we are filled with laughter, it will be because of Jaxon cracking a joke up in heaven.

Jaxon loved spending time on the farm, helping with chores and riding tractors from sun up to sun down. Jaxon savored the outdoors, from picking dandelions to camping with his family. Jaxon rejoiced in playing with his friends, tag and hide & seek, even when nobody knew they were playing. Jaxon attended 1st grade at Stewart elementary and enjoyed playing football, soccer, and baseball.

Jaxon celebrated cheering at his siblings sporting events. Jaxon was his brother, Carter, and two sisters, Jaiden & Callie, #1 fan.

Jaxon will be forever missed by his parents, Troy and Sarah Boomsma of Yankton; two sisters, Jaiden and Callie; one brother, Carter; grandparents: John and Mareldine Boomsma and Gary and June Sutherland; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Jaxon was preceded in death by his aunt, Gina Sutherland.

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to the Boomsma family. There's such a sense of helplessness when someone we love dies, especially so young. I'd like to share some scriptural thoughts that really helps me. Prayer is so valuable at this time but it's not that prayer simply makes us feel better. 2 Cor.4:7 says that God can give us, "... power beyond what is normal ", to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. The reason we recover is because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, "... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". Jesus was referring to the resurrection, this is our hope that helps us recover and gives us power to go on. 2 Cor.1:3 describes our Creator as, "... the God of all comfort ". One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort (Ps.83:18) be your comfort now during this time of sorrow.

Elaine Lambert
