Jane Boyd

Jane Boyd, age 81, of Alpine, passed away on Sunday, June 19, 2022.

 

She was born on August 3, 1940, in Amity, the daughter of Arlie Williams and Lee Louise Rice Williams. On March 30, 1962, she was married to the true love of her life, John Roland Boyd.  She was preceded in death by her parents. 

 

She attended Bethsaida Church of Christ in Amity and for over thirty years she worked as a Clerk for the Arkansas Department of Health in the Clark County Health Unit.  After Jane retired, her Clark County Health Unit "girls" presented her with a lifetime gift of a trip around every Christmastime to go to Branson together to enjoy the lights and the shows, and she made every trip with her girls until her health would no longer allow her to travel.  She enjoyed summertime gardening, and the family definitely loved the many wonderful meals that she would prepare from all the delicious vegetables she raised in her gardens.  Jane was a fantastic cook, especially her teacake cookies and her famous chocolate cake, which her family would beg her to make for every family get together. 

 

Jane was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, who adored her family and her greatest joy in life was getting to take care of each and every member of her family.  She will definitely be missed by all who loved and cherished her. 

 

She is survived by her loving husband, John Boyd of Alpine; her two children and their spouses, Jason and Shelly Boyd of Alpine and Reshea and Kevin Owens of Amity; her three grandchildren, Emmery Boyd, Keenan Owens and his wife, Jade and Kaden Owens; two sisters, Dora Lee Bean and Judy Bardwell, both of Amity; and numerous loving nieces, nephews and extended family members and a host of wonderful friends.
